String art is so chic. This Valentine’s Day project combines love and craft in the perfect way.
- three colours of string
- finished wood board
- finishing nails
- print out of your design
- scoring tool
How to make it
Step 1: Lay out your design and tape it down to the board
Step 2: Tip: Score little holes into the wood to make it easier to hammer in the nails
Step 3: Hammer in nails deep enough that they hold but shallow enough that they don't pierce through the other side
Step 4: Remove the paper guides and secure any loose nails
Step 5: String time! Tie a knot at one end and criss-cross the string around the nails. There is no pattern, just wrap around every nail
Step 6: Add in the other colours of string, from dark to light, to create an ombre effect
Step 7: Tie a knot around the last nail and your done!
Step 8: Hang and enjoy!
