How to Make String Art Trees:

This year, as I was thinking of what I wanted to make, I kept coming back to this idea in my head of three trees. Maybe it came subliminally from The Tale of Three Trees. Or maybe I saw something like it at some point and filed away the idea in the back of my mind. Either way, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I sketched out an idea on paper, and then set to work attempting to make it work with nails and embroidery floss. And you know what? I’m pretty darn happy with how it turned out.
Materials needed to make String Art Trees:
- Piece of wood (mine is 9″ x 19″
- Paint or stain (if desired)
- Tiny nails (these are the ones I used)
- Embroidery floss
- Tacky Glue (optional)
If you want your board painted or stained, do so, and allow to dry fully. I recommend drawing your trees on paper first, before nailing the board. Put the paper on the board, and nail. Then tear off the paper. Tie embroidery floss on one of the nails, then thread the floss around the nails, creating your pattern. When finished, tie the floss again, and clip short. Use tacky glue on the ends. If you want to check out more Christmas decor, you’ll want to look through these posts:
