DIY State String Art Instructions

paint wood plaque for DIY state string art

Sand wood plaque if needed. Paint or stain the wood and let try at least 1 hour.     
Once your wood is dry, place a state template of your choice on top of the wood plaque, making sure to keep the state centered on the wood. You can download and print any state with a heart here.

 Hammer nails along the outline of your state, using your little finger to space each nail. Once state outline is complete, hammer nails around the outline of the heart.

Once all nails are around the state and heart, remove the state template from wooden plaque. Starting at one corner of the state, tie a double knot around a nail using the white embroidery floss. Begin stringing the floss from nail to nail. Being sure to crisscross across the floss for a full look. Once you reach the end of the floss, tie a double knot around the final nail.

Tip: Use some nails more than once for a full look. If you run out of white floss, simply repeat the process of double knot at nail you ran out of and continue stringing.
