How to Make a Molecule Model

by: Lidy

What you will need:

  • Wooden dowel
  • Wooden balls
  • Wood glue
  • Spray paint (in any color you choose)
  • Sand paper
  • Pencil
  • Drill
  • Hand saw

Step by step DIY Molecule Model Tutorial

Instructions:

1. Gather your supplies
2. Measure and mark with a pencil every 5 inches all the way to the end of your dowel
3. Using your hand saw, cut your dowel according to your measurements
4. Sand the edges smooth
5. Clamp your wooden ball and drill holes half way into each ball
6.You can play around with the number of holes you choose to drill in each ball, since this will create your unique molecule design (some I had 1, 2, 3 or 4 holes in one)
7. Play around with your design!
8. Snap a pic of your design so you can come back and recreate the one you are the most happiest with
9. Create holes in cardboard (or foam) to stand your sticks up and spray paint your sticks the color you choose
10. Spray paint your wooden balls until they are completely covered in paint. Let it dry in between painting. Put it back together and enjoy!

Whatever you style, this molecule model will be sure to add charm in your home! What do you think? Could you add some Geek Chic decor to your home?

XOXO, Lidy

    The great thing about this piece of decor is that it’s flexible enough to be used for a child’s room or as a regular decor piece for an adult. It adds an element of interest for sure. Great color choice too.
