Introduction: Easy String Art

Hello, my name is Megan Schultz and I'm so excited to share this extremely, cute, fun, and easy string art! I'm a 15 year old freshman who goes to Centaurus High School and this is a project for our engineering class. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Step 1:

Supplies:

-Any old piece of wood

-Sewing string

-Nails with a nail stopper on top (preferably white nails)

-Hammer

-Scissors

Step 2:

How to make it:

1.) Lightly trace out your design with a pen or pencil

2.) At every point/ corner, hammer in a nail at about 1/2 an inch from the board

3.) When you have all your nails in, take your string and double knot the end of it to your first nail

4.) FOR STRAIGHT LINES: Loop the string around the nails (loop one at a time and hold the string tight)

5.) FOR FILLING IN AREAS: Use the same "loop one nail at a time" method but looping to other nails in a random order, to cover the open areas

6.) TO FINISH OFF YOUR STRING: Cut the string and tie a double knot to your ending nail

    That's really pretty :) Did you take any progress photos while you were making it?
