DIY: Valentine's Day string art projectPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Home Depot's Debbie Hernandez showed us how to do a string art project for Valentine's Day.
-4-foot-by-12-inch pine plank cut into 12-by-12-inch squares. We can cut it at The Home Depot (you'll get four pieces)
-Paint or stain of your choice
-Wire, twins or string
-Piece of paper to cut out heart template
-Hook for hanging
-Bow or ribbon (optional)
-Place heart in the center of the board and trace around the heart with a pencil.
-Tie a knot or wrap the wire around the first nail, then proceed to wrap the string of wire back and forth until the entire heart or the background is covered. (You can go around as many times as you wish.)
-Tie a knot around the last nail and trim the ends.
You can also make a letter, geometric shapes, etc. Be creative and have fun!
