DIY Decor: Stunning String Art!

Why have I never done this before? It’s so cute and super easy – I want to make one for every room in the house! Plus, you probably already have everything on hand – scrap wood, hammer & nails, and string. While this is cute just to hang on a wall or set on a shelf, I bet it would be an awesome festive mantel piece during the Holidays, using red, green and white, or a fun porch decoration using red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July! The possibilities are endless, so go ahead and get creative!

– A piece of wood the desired size of your finished project

Cut out letters from paper, and tape them on the board.

Hammer in nails around the outline of the letters, about a ⅛-¼ inch apart.

Remove the paper letters.

Tie on string to first nail, wrap around nail head, and continue to weave and wrap around nails until the letter is filled in.

Tie off and cut.

Repeat for other letters.

Hang your beautiful art and brag about it to all of your friends.
