In this video, I am working on wall decor with wire. I also created a second home decor project with wire, which turned out to be extremely cute. All I need to have is a wire (obviously) and black spray paint.
At first, I have drawn a few single-line doodles that I would want to create and have chosen 2 favourite ones.
I am making a wall decor, that has the shape of a light bulb with a plug. I bend it using pliers. When finished, I give it a coat of black paint using spray paint. To avoid making a mess at home, I am using a cardboard box.
I am going to be using a silver wire and a couple of pliers for bending and cutting the wire.
I am going to speed up the process. I started giving a shape of a plug, then made a loop and finished up with a light bulb itself.
All you need to do is to give your wire the shape of that one-line doodle by bending it. You are basically drawing a doodle with the wire. Use pliers to give a sharp bend to the wire. Although many times it was easier to bend with fingers when I needed to give a shape to my metal doodle.
I wanted to make my wall decor black, so I am using black spray paint. I placed the decor piece inside a cardboard box and gave it a nice coat of paint and that finished the project.
And that finished up the project.
The second project, a leaf of Monstera plant, is going to be a home decor I want to place in my shelf unit. Once again, I give it the shape I want and then use extra wire to “connect the dots” and attach the edges of the leaf with the central line. I paint it black, too and that ends the project.
It is incredible how one-line metal wall decor and home decor items fit any interior. They are super fun and cute temporary addition to your home design.
Did you enjoy the DIY project? Would you do it somehow differently?
