String art is all the rage right now. I pinned this image a while back from another Pinterester and just knew that i wanted to jump on the string art bandwagon and make myself something.
So i searched further into the depths of Pinterest and found these images. Some a little more ambitious than others.
Then I stopped at this one and did my best to make my own version of it.
This is what I came up with.
I started with a scrap piece of wood I found in our backyard from one of Jeff's projects. Then I painted it with a thin coat of this peachy paint I had been wanting to incorporate into our living room.
Next, I printed out the word LOVE. I don't have any cool fonts so I settled on this one. Cant even remember what its called.
Next, I taped my paper to the wood and began hammering little nails about half way into the wood.
After I (err Jeff) finished hammering all the nails in, I ripped off the paper and was left with this. (Don't pay attention to the blue string, it was my trial run.)
Then I got busy wrapping and wrapping and wrapping string around the nails until I thought it looked good. By the way, I used regular old sewing thread for this project and doubled it up. I think it turned out okay. If I had done it bigger, I would have probably wanted to use a thicker string, but I just used what I had on hand.
This is really a project that anyone can do. It doesn't have to be exact to look good, trust me, mine is not exact at all. ANd um I think it looks good :)
Happy Crafting Friends!
