Step 1
First, gather skinny sticks from outside, all roughly the same width. You will need 12, 7" long sticks. Use wire cutter to cut sticks down to size. 
Step 2
Create a textured background on the canvas by mixing acrylic paint with gel medium. Blend colors into the gel medium on a piece of palette paper. Use image as a guide. Let dry. Paint edges as well. 
Step 3
Use a paintbrush to coat the sticks with Gold metallic luster. 
Step 4
Bind two sticks together and wrap Gold floss around each end to hold in place. Repeat this step on all 12 sticks. 
Step 5
Arrange three of the stick bundles into a triangle. Band each of the corners together with Gold floss and wrap to hold in place. Repeat this step on the remaining three sticks. This will result in two triangles of the same size. 
Step 6
Use hot glue to adhere the two triangles together. Use image as your guide. Let dry.
