Using some painter’s tape (or in my case, washi tape) tape off the bottom 4th of each dowel. Using a gold leafing paint pen (or regular paint or spray paint), fill in the area below the tape. I love using the gold leafing paint pen because it gives such a beautiful metallic glow and dries in a snap! Once it is all dry, peel off the paint to reveal lovely gold-dipped dowels like so:

Holding all of your dowels together, hot glue the end of your leather cord to one dowel and hold in place until dry. Pro tip: try not burn your fingers off 😉

Step 3

Wrap the leather cord around your bundle of dowels several times – you can wrap it evenly or more haphazardly like I did. Glue the other end of the leather cord down and hold in place until dry.

Step 4

Press down on the top of your bundle of dowels to spread them out. You can wiggle them around a bit until they spread into a fashion that you are satisfied with. Next, add a bit of hot glue to the middle of your dowel teepee and keep each rod in place.
