As those of you who follow me know I've been bitten by a wood working bug, so of course I had to combine two of my favorite things into a project. I did a string (or should I say twine) art project for Valentine's Day decor.
To line up the nails for my heart I simply used the rhinestone feature in Silhouette Studio DE, I sized a heart and then turned the edge into a rhinestone template. I printed this off and stuck it with double sided tape to my painted wood. Then it was as simple as nailing in the nails.
Don't laugh at my mini hammer, full sized ones can be so hard to control and this little guy is perfect, no more smashed fingers or missed nails, you can find it on Amazon right here for less then $7: perfect little hammer In order to keep the nails close to even in height I first nailed every other hole, then when putting the nail in the middle the hammer head leveled them all out
Then it was just a matter of wrapping my twine around the nails, I had no rhyme or reason with this.. I like things to be symetrical so I went with this look (though it does look a bit like a spider web, my daughter suggested I add a pink glitter love spider LOL) You can try different ways of wrapping to see what you like best.
Lastly I decided to add some pink stickles to the heads of the nails, rhinestones would have also been really cute.
I can't decide which of the two new releases I like better, since you probably can't either go ahead and get both <wink>. We have then on special for this weekend only.
The full spool set is on sale for $16.50 right here: Pink Licorice & Pink Midnight Spools
The minis are on special for $3.95 for the set right here: Pink Licorice & Pink Midnight Minis
