Step 1: Materials
Spray paint colour of choice
Fishing line/thin wire
Step 2: Prepare Straws
Cut off the bendy part of all your straws
Create 10 long lengths and 2 medium lengths
**You can experiment with different lengths to create different shapes. For the most part you are creating triangle and diamond shapes--so have fun!**
Step 3: Construction
Thread 2 long straws and 1 medium straw together with fishing line and tie it off.
Add 2 long straws with fishing line to each triangle to form the diamond shapes seen above.
Step 4: Construction Part 2
Thread long strand of fishing line through the centre shorter straw of one diamond shape.
Then thread a long straw, then through the centre shorter straw of the second diamond.
The fishing line should be strung between 4 straws.
Tie the two ends together. It should form a rectangle shape.
Tie the tips of the diamond to one another with small piece of fishing line.
Trim off any excess
Step 5: Paint & Hang
Experiment with different shapes
Spray paint each shape
**Metallic paint works best to resemble metal in this case**
These can rest on a table top or can be hung from the ceiling with additional fishing line
