Oceanic Urchin DIY

DIY gold urchin

I posted last week about the uptrending ‘oceanic’ pieces that have been catching my eye lately , so I knew I wanted to do some sort of DIY surrounding the theme.  Not only is the gold urchin super on trend, but it’s crazy easy and clean up is so simple.

ONE cut a 3″ foam sphere in half TWO snip wooden skewers into lengths ranging from 2″ to 4″ and everywhere in between. THREE stick your skewers into the domed portion of your foam.  Make sure that each skewer appears to be originating at the same central point.  FOUR spray your urchin outdoors on a few sheets of Bounty paper towels.

Do you want to hear the best part of this post (not that the urchin isn’t awesome)? To help you get your DIY on, we’re giving away (drumroll please) some Bounty of your own and a $250 to the Home Depot!  Crazy awesome!

    Oh, and I wanted to ask about J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, since it’s displayed in your vignette. Did you enjoy the book? I don’t think I have EVER seen a book that has received such disparate comments on one book.

    • Erin | House of Earnest June 20, 2013 at 1:52 pm #

      Oona – I never finished it! I was pretty luke warm on it and about halfway though I stopped. I plan to finish sometime this summer, though!

    My house was built in 1919 and a Home Depot gift card is just what the doctor ordered :-)

  162. Caitlin @ Hardly Housewives June 26, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

    Nice project and giveaway! I also really liked “State of Wonder”!

  163. Kate June 26, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

    Love that little urchin!

  164. Jenn June 26, 2013 at 10:12 pm #

    Thanks for sharing! We could really use that gift card to help fill up our new house!

  165. Tammi Miller June 26, 2013 at 10:17 pm #

    Just shared your cute card holder on Facebook. A depot gift card would help with fixing our house up so we can sell it and get moved to our new house and closer to our (and Erins grandparents) family.

  166. Derek Drake June 26, 2013 at 10:27 pm #

    This would help us so much around the house! Too many projects, not enough money! And now that my wife, Sarah (Jordan) shared this blog with me, I have even more projects!

    Looking forward to checking out more here!

    PS – Shared on Facebook & Twitter, for what it’s worth.

    Great ideas! Can’t wait to use that gift card!,,,

  168. Beth June 26, 2013 at 10:56 pm #

    I adore this idea!! The Home Depot gift card would be fabulous :):)

  169. Heather June 29, 2013 at 7:01 am #

    The photo holder idea is definitely cute! I might do silver glitter to better fit the decor at my home.

  170. Lindsey June 29, 2013 at 10:02 pm #

    Wow, please enter me in the giveaway.

    I read The Casual Vacancy and enjoyed it. Actually, I listened to it on CD from our county library. That way I can do something else while “reading”.

    Love it! Wondering what spray paint you used though- I’ve had bad luck in finding a good gold spray paint (usually ends up being a cheap looking yellow-gold) Thanks!

      kathryn – I’ve used a couple different types, but find that craft stores have much better gold selections than home improvement stores!
