I was browsing the net looking for some inspiration for some kind of decorative piece to put on Justin’s night stand. He didn’t want anything girly like this cute little flower piece I made for my night stand.
I found this blog post on how to make a DIY wooden sphere. I followed the tutorial pretty closely, I just didn’t add the tacks. So I started off by purchasing two 6 inch embroidery hoops from Michael’s.
First unscrew the latch at the bottom and separat the hoops.
Next I took my stain and used a foam brush to apply it and then a cloth to wipe any excess stain away.
I let them dry for 24 hours before assembling them.
Next I just inserted the inner hoops (with no screw parts) into the open (screw parts) hoops and adjusted them how I liked them and then screwed the two open hoops closed.
Then add another hoop
Then another 🙂
Done, all four hoops are in place. I ended up adding a bit more stain to darken it up.
Here it is in it’s final resting place.
Just hide the screw parts towards the back. I love it! I think it turned out great.
What do you guys think?
