Now that it’s September I feel like I can officially start decorating for fall. Today’s project is a quick and easy string art wreath that would be perfect for anyone who wants to try string art for the first time. It’s also a small way to add a little fall decor to your home before it really starts to get cool outside.
Supplies needed to make your own string art wreath:
- Unfinished Wood Painting Panel
- Wood Stain or Paint
- Small Nails
- Circle Template
- Hemp Cord
- Sunflowers (or your favorite fall flowers)
First, stain or paint the wooden panel. I chose to stain my wood but I think it would look great painted a bright turquoise with the red and yellow sunflowers.
Place your wreath template on wood panel. I used my Cricut to cut a 3/4 inch circle that’s 7 inches wide but you can easily cut a circle using something round as a template. Add nails about every inch around the inside and outside of the circle template.
Now for the fun part. It’s time to start wrapping the string around the nails. There really is no right or wrong way to do this. Just start zigzagging and have fun. After every nail has been wrapped at least once, I go around the entire shape.
The last step is to add your flowers and greenery. Again, there is no right or wrong way to do this. I will say that I did not glue anything. I just tucked everything between the nails. I also removed the flowers from their stems and placed them onto nails.
