Our first craft night was a great success! Not everyone finished, but we all had loads of fun. And we will get together again to finish. Here is a quick tutorial on string art for a crowd. First I cut and stained the boards ahead of time.
We added these hangers on the back before doing anything to the front.
Next I taped a simple line drawing to the front of my board and pounded nails in along the lines. 3/4 inch bright nails worked well.
The nails make your hands dirty so there is plenty of hand washing.
After all the nails are in, tear away the paper.
Then use some crochet thread to randomly wrap around the nails. I wanted my design fairly well filled in so I went over it quite a few times.
It is off center on purpose, I plan to add some lettering. Here are some of the other projects worked on last nigh.
The project was fun, but the best part was hearing the laughter and talk among young moms that needed a night out. I can’t wait until the next craft night! Have a great day!
