String art my heart- DIY
I know it's been awhile since my last blog! But I am back with a fun one today. I've seen some really cute string art all over Pinterest and I knew I had to try it! It was so easy, fun and actually very relaxing! It reminded me of those string art projects from elementary school. For this project I am dedicating it to my home state of Minnesota. You Betcha!
- piece of wood of your choice
- linoleum nails 11/16"
- embroidery thread - colors of your choice
- drawing or picture of what you want to make
Step one: Figure out what you want to string art
Step two: Place drawing on piece of wood where you'd like the drawing to be
Step three: Start outlining the drawing with nails
Step four: Remove the drawing showing the outline you just made
Step five: Tie the thread of the color of your choice to where you'd like to start
Step six: Start zig-zagging and remember to keep your pattern! Tie another knot where you want to stop. Then start a new color if you want or end the string art
Step seven: Hang or find a new home for your beautiful new artwork!
