Love

Hey guys! One week left for Valentine’s Day, so it’s the moment of thinking about de DIY and easy gifts that we can male, as this String Ar made by Sofia Loayza. Let’s take a look to this tutorial so we can learn how to make it!

You will need these materials:

  •  Wooden board
  •  Tracing paper
  •  Pencil
  •  Patterns
  •  Acrylic paint
  •  Brush
  •  Cotton Thread or Wool
  •  Sandpaper
  •  Hammer
  •  Nail

1. The first step is to sand down the wooden board and, then, paint it in white using acrylic paint.1

2. The second step is to trace the shape on the board using tracing paper. As you can see, you have to put the tracing paper between the board and the template and dreaw again the line using a pencil. In this case it’s an elephand and the word “LOVE”

3. The third step it’s to nail the nails ord pins using a hammer all around the elephant or “Love” letters shape.

4. The fouth step is to pass the thread over the edges or borders making a little loop in each one, as you can see on the video. Remember that you can use different colours.

And that’s all! It look really nice and it’s a perfect handmade gift to give to your beloved on Valentine’s Day.

 

Andrea Vlogger Gt show us in this video 2 ways to make a String Art DIY, the “inverse way”, filling with thread all the space left outside the main figure, in this case, a heart and, on the other side, the classic way, filling the figure, in this case, the word “love”, written whith a lovely handwritting typo.
As you can see, she paints the board in blue and in pink. The thing I like the most is that she uses jute or sacking thread to make this project and it looks really great. Don’t you think so?

It’s a really lovely handmade gift to your boyfriend or girlfriend, no matter if it is because of your love, your anniversary or Valentine’s Day.

Live Laugh Love String Art free pattern to download

I really love these three verbs, they combine perfectly: “Live, laugh and love”. It’s a good message to write on a board, also if it is written with nails and threads, and a good idea to decorate a living room and to rembember all the family members to to these 3 things everyday.
