The DIY of the week, step by step
Let’s see how to make this DIY few simple steps. First, you must decide the shape and design of your pendant . You can place the wooden pieces as you like, only have to stagger the different bars and balance the weight on both sides. In the photographs that accompany this tutorial will see an idea to do it, but you can create your own completely customized.
Cut the bars
Once you have determined the placement of the wooden bars, cut with the saw for the length desired for each step. Spend sandpaper the ends to remove any rough or splintered zone after cutting the rods. If you have not saw and want to get one for this craft you can buy bars of different lengths or request that you cut them at your local hardware store.
Now let’s make holes through which pass the string that will hold the structure . You must measure the same distance on each rod and drill. Remember that having cut the rods with different lengths must drill the longest bar in the middle, or where touch, so you can spend short rope and hold them all bars. With this image you will understand what I mean.
The colored balls
Now it give a touch of joy to this design. Paint the white balls of colors chosen for your creation.A water-based spray will help you do so quickly and easily. You can also use acrylic paint, also water based.
Place the wooden bars as is your design and cut the rope you need to hold them , leaving an extra to fit well and make knots . And there is only the final step: the assembly of all parts.Interleaving colored balls and place some wood (if it is the same shade as bars, great) to give the personal touch to your creation. In this tutorial they have even added a heart. It can be cardboard or paper and go stuck on the rope, for example.
