Popsicle Stick Charger

This is another one of those projects, you know the one, it is made from something completely random. In this case- popsicle sticks. 
I am trying to de-clutter my craft area and that means I need to use up some of the extra materials I have lying around. In this case it was a small piece of scrap wood, popsicle sticks and a half of a can of crappy black spray paint. 
This is what it became:

First, I grabbed my materials. In addition to what is listed above, I used my hot glue gun. 
Then I started by placing four sticks coming out from the middle and towards the corners. 
Then I placed four sticks in the middle of those. 
Then more sticks in the middle of those. 
And again, I repeated this process until it was all full.
Then I started again on a second layer on top of the first one. 
Here is what it looked like when I was done:
The back:
At this point, I took it outside and painted it with my craptastic spray paint. I will be honest, I used to always use the cheapest stuff possible, but then I tried the name brand and realized why they are better, but that doesn’t mean that this random  can found in my garage is going to go to waste! I just needed to do about 40 coats of it instead of just a couple of a name brand.
After that it was done!! I put it on the table under some candles, but these would make such awesome chargers for a party and it wouldn’t take to much time or money at all!!
