Introduction: Geometric Prism Decor

About: My name is Janel and I love creating easy, cheap DIY projects! Everything from clothing to jewellery to decor and more. Check out my YouTube channel toDIYfor for my weekly tutorial videos.

Very inexpensive way to jump on this popular trend right now!

**Check out the FULL TUTORIAL ABOVE**

Step 1: Materials

Straws

Spray paint colour of choice

Scissors

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.

Repeat.

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

    No to be rude but none of these shapes are actually prisms. Over all a very nice 'ible.

    Love the rustic/chic setup! Nice tutorial
