DIY Decor | Matchsticks


Matchsticks & Cardboard 
My DIY weekend with hundreds of matches, cardboard, glue, and wooden chair seat from alphabet city trash day...

Sanded down the wooden chair seat to make a smooth circular frame

Strike Anywhere Matches from the hardware store

Whiskey because the lighting was perfect and whiskey makes most things better

Burned each match while catching up on tv 

Glued down the eight guide spokes and began filling in the gaps

After all of the matchsticks were glued down I use an x-acto knife to trim down excess cardboard

Figure framed and awaiting the matte

Matted and framed

The final product

Very creative. I love how you repurposed those elements into something so beautiful.
