I love string Artwork & I remembering doing it as a little girl.
It's so easy.
This is how to do it.
A piece of wood ( cork board works well too)
Firstly use the cardboard & fold in half, draw 1 half of the love heart & cut out.
Make sure it fits nicely.
Use the template & draw it onto the paper.
Stick it onto the board in place.
I draw the dots on the heart about .5 cm apart.
You can use it as a guide, because I didn't really stick to it.
Once done, carefully pull the paper off.
Hammer a nail in the middle too.
Start in the middle & tie it off.
Go down to the outside, wrap around, then back up into the middle.
Keep on going around & around.
Work your way up the middle of the nail as you go around.
You can also make it on cork board. A lot easier to nail in.
Do random string work, that looks really effective.
Next time I think I will make a huge one.
