Shantaie here today bringing you some Valentine love!
There are string art projects everywhere lately, and can be purchased in almost every shape even green dinosaurs! I was intrigued, and wondered if I could make one myself. I picked up a wood frame by Jillibean soup, and cut a vinyl heart and placed it in the center, I found this step easier for me, as I can't really draw! I grabbed a handful of small nails and hammered them along the heart and peeled the vinyl away.
I began just wrapping and crisscrossing my jute twine in a random way, I didn't follow any specific pattern because I wanted my heart to be a free form pathway, kind of like my real heart!
Not only was this fun, it was easy, and very relaxing. I would highly recommend this as a calming, or soothing activity, and the end result is so unique, and personal! If you want to make a specific pattern, there are plenty of instructions online, and you cam make almost any shape, especially using adhesive vinyl as a guide!
