Today’s post is a little DIY meets foliophoto!
Subject: You know those super trendy Nate Berkus decorative urchins for Target? Well I think they are amazing. I created my own interpretation of them a couple months back. Introducing Christie’s urchins! My initial plan was to create these and spray paint them metallic gold [which let's face it I might still do] but I’m waiting for the weather to allow an outdoor spray painting day. In the meantime, I’ve fallen in love with the wooden dowels and really like them in their incomplete stage which is why they are the photo of the week!
Camera: iPhone5 | no filter just cropped to square
DIY supplies to create your own urchin:
Styrofoam balls [cut in half - or just save yourself time and buy the semi-circular ones!]
Wooden dowels [you can choose various sizes or all the same size depending on the look you want - these are all the same size]
Spray paint [optional]
Want to join up? Here’s the dealio on #foliophoto:
Sandra & I will brainstorm a topic each week to interpret through photos [we are trying to build up our skills, portfolios, and original content that we create for our blogs] and you will be able to participate if you would like! We’ve started a flickr group called Foliophoto (public/invite only for now – email me for access or mention it in the comments) and instagram hashtag #foliophoto. You don’t have to be a blogger to participate – come one come all!
Next week’s prompt? WINTER
P.S. Make sure you check out Sandra‘s interpretation of wood and check out the others participating!
