Make your desk accessories more original and personalized with this cool tutorial from revamperate.com. You’ll need wire mesh desk accessories, copper spray paint, embroidery thread, a needle. First, spray paint one coat of copper paint on the wire mesh, let dry and spray again. Let dry completely before beginning the next step. Thread your needle and, starting at the back of the accessory, tie a knot through the mesh where you want to start your pattern – a pencil cup, for example. Thread the needle through every other piece of wire for about five stitches at a diagonal, thread it back down and back up again. This creates a thicker stitch and is the beginning of your chevron pattern. Read what to do next here.
