instructions:

  1. Cut two 1" x 11" strips from long edge of each piece of sticker paper; do not remove paper backing. For each pair of strips, peel back and remove 1" of paper backing at end of one strip and adhere it to one end of second strip, creating a 21"-long strip.
     
  2. Trace foam disc nine times onto back of sticker paper and cut out; again, do not remove paper backing.
     
  3. Spread thin, even coat of glue onto one side of first foam disc. Center one paper circle on disc; smooth paper with fingers. Repeat to cover all discs. Wipe away excess glue with damp cloth.
     
  4. In same way, cover disc edges with paper strips cut in Step 1; secure with craft pins and trim excess. Repeat to cover all disc edges. Wipe away excess glue with damp cloth. Let dry.
     
  5. Spray paint wooden strips; let dry. Use craft snips to cut three strips to 20" long; cut six 8" lengths from remaining strips.
     
  6. Refer to diagram and place discs facedown and 2" apart in a 3 x 3 grid pattern. Check for straightness and accuracy throughout rest of project.
     
  7. Use craft glue to glue three 20" wood strips vertically across center of each row of three discs; let dry.
     
  8. Glue 8" wood strips horizontally to connect the rows. For additional reinforcement, insert u-pins over wood strips and into foam. Let dry completely before handling wall sculpture.
     
  9. Cut two 3" wire lengths; twist ends of each length together around top back wood strips to form loops. Be sure loops are level; spot glue to secure. Hang art as shown.
