Introduction: Rustic Nail Art
with just a scrap piece of wood a hammer some finishing nails and the yarn you have from that failed scarf or throw blanket you can make one too!
Step 1: Get a Scrap Piece of Wood
and distress it if you like a rustic look. basically scratch and mar the edges with a knife, saw or even scrape it up on the concrete add deep scores into the edge to mimic a crack or two then stain or paint it with whatever you have handy
Step 2: Make a Template of What You Want to Be on Your Board
start nailing!. you pick how far apart you want your nails. I chose to nail them a 1/4 inch apart but remember the closer they are the harder it is to wrap the yarn around each nail
make sure you don't nail into the paper template because it is a pain to remove it later if its nailed on. I chose a random pattern with the yarn. next I drew the world love and started all over again I didn't do the center of the letters until after I removed the template it is a lot easier to remove this way
Step 4: Voila
remember the closer the nails are the harder and more time consuming it is... but it looks a lot better in the long run
