About this Project
Have you been sea-urchin for fresh wall art? Add some Vitamin Sea to your home decor with mod 3D urchin art made from Styrofoam balls and dowel rods.
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
1Cut Styrofoam ball in half. Clean excess and set other half aside.
2Poke a small hole in the top middle of the Styrofoam ball, and begin poking dots around the ball in a grid pattern, about .25" apart.
3Cut wood dowels in half, creating two 6" pieces each. Set the hot glue gun to low temp. Apply a small dab of glue to one side of the dowel, and place into the marked dot. Press into the Styrofoam and hold down until dry.
4Spray 2-3 light coats of the TintIT spray paint onto the center of the ball. Rotate as you spray to evenly coat. Let dry between layers.
5Spray 2-3 coats of the Rust-Oleum spray paint onto the outside of the ball, only covering the ends of each dowel. Let dry between coats.
6Pin a sawtooth hanger onto the back of the ball to hang. If needed, secure with hot glue.
