Twig ArtSep 16, 2014 09:00AM ● By HerFamily Staff
An unexpected bonus comes in this work of earthy art when the tendrils of twigs cast their irregular shadows, doppelganger-style, on the adjoining wall. The play of light and shadow can be downright mesmerizing!
Be sure to use a varied mix of straight-ish and bent sticks and twigs. That’s how you’ll achieve yet another “happy accident” where your previously 2-D picture frame now creates a decidedly 3-D vibe as your assemblage veritably bursts from the frame, taking on a sculptural look in a composition that morphs into new patterns with each different angle.
Cues for the Clueless:
Are you an apartment-dweller? Or is your yard just plain naked? The floral department of any big box hobby store is loaded with pre-cut bundles of inspiration for how to fill your frame.
We used glue to secure twigs harvested from backyard shrubbery, but a staple gun would have slashed assembly time for this one.
