I’m so excited about today’s Easter project. I’ve been wanting to try making string art for a few years and never got around to it. But, now I can officially check it off my crafting bucket list because look at this adorable bunny Easter string art I made. The best part is it took less than two hours. The hardest part was waiting for the stain to dry because I was ready to start hammering.
Supplies needed to make your own Easter string art:
- Unfinished Wood Panel
- Wood Stain or Paint
- 1 inch Nails
- Long Nose Pliers
- Hemp Cord in 2 Colors
- Double Sided Tape
- Bunny Template
First, you need to paint or stain your board. I was going to paint my board a light pink but then I decided to stain it and I’m so glad I did. While the stain dries, print out your bunny template and cut out the bunny along with the bunny’s tail.
Once the paint or stain is dry, adhere the bunny to the board and start hammering in the nails. I started by placing a nail at every corner. The needle nose pliers help to hold the nail so you can see better. Then, evenly space out the nails around the entire bunny. My nails are about half an inch apart.
Remove the paper template. Tie the string to one nail and just start wrapping the string around the nails. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Just keep wrapping the strings so they overlap each other and have fun!
So what do you think? Not bad for my very first string art project. I must admit that you can’t mess this up as long as you space out your nails evenly, you’re string art will look amazing. I will also confess that I was so nervous about starting this project because I thought for sure it would look horrible but I LOVE it. This project shows you that if I can do, you can do it!
