For this DIY, I created a piece of custom wall art using yarn and nails. If you know how to use a hammer and can wrap a piece of yarn, then your project will turn out just fabulous. A custom monogram or an inspirational word would also make a great pattern for this string art project. Any other ideas? Share them in the comments section and follow the steps below to make your very own!

• Yarn (I used Lion Brand Yarn Bonbons in 3 colors: purple, palest lavender and tan)
• Piece of wood at least 1/2 inch thick
• Printout of your desired pattern
• Box of nails
• Hammer
• Scissors
• Tape
• Cut out your desired pattern.
• Tape the pattern directly onto the piece of wood.
• Nail around the edges of your pattern using a hammer. The nails can be as far apart as you wish, but I would recommend about 1/4 inch apart for smaller patterns and up to 1 inch apart for larger ones.
• Remove the pattern so that only the nails remain on the wood.
• Grab your string and tie a knot around one of the nails to secure in place.
• Start wrapping the string back and forth around the nails. The best part is there is no right or wrong way to do this. Just have fun wrapping away!
• Continue wrapping until you’ve reached your desired look. Get creative and experiment with switching between different colors of string.
• Once complete, tie the end of the string to one of the nails and cut off any excess.
