DIY Kelly Wearstler Inspired Anemone

I spied this Kelly Wearstler brass sculpture a while ago and it has never left my mind, so I decided to DIY it! The original is called a kaleidoscope, but I’d rather call it an anenome! The light it casts on the wall is really beautiful, almost under waterly (I know that isn’t a word, but I’m using it anyway!)

I began by taking a styrofoam ball and about 150 straws, another good option would be wooden skewers. I drove the straws in as deep as I could, and secured some with glue. Then I coated it with Krylon champagne coloured spray paint an voila! It’s definitlely not as awesome or strong as a brass sculpture would be, but until I have an extra 2 grand available for art, this will have to do! I really love my new sculptures and I think I’m going to make half anemones to hang on my wall!
