Hi, guys,

Soooo I'm getting my sister this thing for Christmas by a recommendation I received:


It looks pretty basic, though, and I thought it would be cool to also give her some way of decorating the wall art in case she wanted. So I was thinking an elastic cover could maintain the cool shape while also filling it in and even potentially providing a painting surface. The trouble is that I don't know how you can get generic elastic material that isn't already pre-fitted to something, and I'm not sure how you would get that material to hold if there's not really anything to hook around on the wooden structures. Any advice here would be much, much appreciated.

The pieces look pretty delicate. My best guess without seeing one in person, would be to use a stretch fabric and sew some loops on to wrap around the pieces. Or maybe use paper with rubber cement.

Those are so cool! I actually like them just the way they are Smiley.

What about doing something with air plants or some of those small LED lights? Different than having a cover but might be a fun way to doll them up a bit.
