Geometric Party Installation

A few years ago when we were living in Paris I saw some really amazing window displays and I’ve always wanted to make some party decorations inspired by them. Last week we gave it a go and loved how they turned out. This geometric installation would be so awesome hanging above tables for a wedding or in a large loft space. They are so elegant and beautiful. They would even make a really great photobooth backdrop. The best part: they are really inexpensive and simple to make and have such a big impact. I kind of want to make one to keep in my office above my desk. See full instructions below.

Materials: Wooden Dowels, Small Styrofoam Balls, Hot Glue Gun, Clippers (to cut through the dowels)

Step 1: Cut the dowels down to about 2 ½ feet long.
Step 2: Poke the first dowel into a styrofoam ball.
Step 3: Remove the dowel and add a little bit of glue to the hole you created.
Step 4: Continue adding dowels and balls in any way you’d like. It will build a unique shape.
Step 5: Hang from the ceiling with string.
