String Art, its a very interesting craft to me and I've always wanted to try it. I decided to finally have a go and this is my very first try at it. It's not perfect but I like how it turned out. I want to make more now! lol!
A piece of wood cut to 8 1/2" x 8 1/2", sanded smooth
String art pattern of your choice
1 box of 1" 15oz nails
Sand paper (very fine like 220)
2 shades of purple paint
Foam paint brush
Painters and washi tape
Vinyl for words (Cutting machine to cut out words)
1 bundle of purple embroidery floss
1 bundle of green embroidery floss
Crocheted Daisy with leaves
1 Mason jar
1 hose clamp large enough to fit your jar neck
I found my pattern by Google-ing hummingbird pattern. Here I taped on the pattern with washi tape and laid the jar down for placement.
NOTE: DO NOT do this! I discovered that if you just tap the nail in to make a hole and then remove it all the way around your pattern and then take the pattern away, THEN hammer in the nails into each hole, its LOTS easier. Trust me, getting the paper pattern off with all the nails in it is NOT easy and then you've ruined your cute little pattern you could have re-used!
It doesn't have to be done all at once. It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!I'm Linking to:
These lovely and FUN parties!
