String Art

Eat String Art

I love the new string art decor.  I found mine at Joanns and used a coupon to help reduce the cost.  

 

I liked the word (Eat) of the string art but I needed the string to be a different color (it came with orange).


Easy enough I went over to the embroidery thread aisle and found the color that fit the new colors in the Breakfast Nook.  I got two skeins and that was more than enough to do three letters.

The directions on how to do the string art comes in the kit.  My suggestion is that you make sure you end your string art by doing the outline of the letter.  Doing so defines the word with straight lines. I also overlapped some of the lapping of the string which just gives more depth to the individual letters.

You will have to cut and tie off the thread but you can trim it down and glue the ends to get it nice and neat.

I went a couple of steps further (because that is what my girls call Sherrification) and added shadowing to the edges of the wood with Distressed Ink (Black Soot).  I also used black paint and colored the nail heads.  You don’t have to do these final steps but doing it makes it pop off the white walls in the Breakfast Nook.
