DIY String Map Art


This next art project, involves the creation of string art and can be a nice decoration in your home. You can hang it on the wall or just place it on a shelf, it will look good in both ways. You will need a wooden board, we used a 12” x 12” one. Then you will need paint, small nails, tape, a hammer and your template. The template we propose here is a map and we also cut out a heart in the middle of it so to look even cuter. We hammered the nails around the template, removed it, and started wrapping the strings around the nails. Of course, you can use any template you want, just be sure not to hurt yourself while hitting the nails with the hammer. The result is a nice decoration which will give personality to your room.






This project belongs to the Harpster Home.

      I followed the link and found this “Using painters tape — because it won’t pull up the paint — tape down your template of whichever state you love the most. I printed a map from the internets, trimmed around the edges, and cut out a heart shape around Columbus. Nothing scientific.”

    @ Gregor: an idiot is someone who insults people for no apparent reason.

    I would use a pair of needle nose plyers when nailing in the tiny nails to save on your fingers.
