Introduction: Low Poly Wooden Wall Art

About: Urška Merc

Inspired by I made a low poly picture of a hummingbird.

Step 1: Things You Need


  • piece of plywood (mine was 12mm sheet)
  • scrap piece of wood or plywood for the background
  • spray adhesive or any other glue to attach template to the plywood
  • paint
  • wood glue
  • super glue
  • wall hanging hardware


  • printer
  • saw (I used a scroll saw)
  • sanding paper

Step 2: Cutting the Template

I printed out the image of a hummingbird on two sheets of paper and glue them on a 12mm plywood. I cut each triangle out with a scroll saw. While doing so, I also number each triangle on the printed image as well on the bottom of the wood pieces.

Step 3: Painting and Glueing

I lightly sanded and painted each piece and started glueing them to the wood board. Since pieces are so small I wasn't able to use any clams, instead I used a wood glue with a bit of super glue to hold pieces in place while the wood glue do the magic.

Step 4: Final Product

All in all, I am pretty happy with how my little project turned out! Though, if I would do it once again, I would definitelly use a bigger mesh size, since some pieces were so small that I needed to use a tweezer while placing them down.
