Heart String Art

String art is an easy craft that is fun to make. This heart string art is enhanced by using upholstery tacks to create the heart shape. 

So grab a scrap of wood, some string and some nails (or tacks) and you can whip up this Valentine's string art in no time.

HEART STRING ART

I love projects that I can make using supplies I already have. This is one of those projects. I did have to get some red thread, but everything else came from my stash of supplies.

HOW TO MAKE HEART STRING ART

  1. Start by finding a piece of wood that will work. Mine was 12 X 12. Then sand it and stain it if desired. Let dry completely.
  2. Next fold your piece of paper in half and draw a heart. Cut it out. Mine started out too big, but I just trimmed it down a little at a time until it was the right size.
  3. Place your paper in the center of your wood. Push the upholstery tacks in around the heart. I tried to keep them evenly spaced, but it's not perfect. I did this by hand. After, I went through with a hammer and pounded some of them so they were all fairly even.  
  4. Tie the string to a nail. Clip the short tail. Wrap the string randomly from nail to nail. Continue until it looks how you want it. Tie the string to a nail and clip excess.

Voila, your very own string art!
