Yesterday I tried a Pinterest.com project, which I had been wanting to do for a while now – string art. I think it came out great, but the wood was not the best – old shelf from a broken bookshelf – so instead of tossing it out, I recycled it, but it’s not “real” wood. Also the nails were too short, so must keep that in mind when I buy more nails – longer are better.
First you put in the nails, then wrap the string…. this can be done in different patters and colors, but for the first one I didn’t fuss much.
Final item. I think it’s cute and I have it in Soren’s room.
Maebh wants one so will do one for her possibly on the last shelf thing I have but what I really want to do is Massachusetts. There are a few examples out there which I like so will do something similar but not exact.
If I ever get around to doing more, I’ll update.
