We made a lovely little wall art for our home, and I thought I’d share a little how-to, in collaboration with Betta Living.
You will need:
A rustic wooden board
Lots of nails
Start by putting paper on top of your wooden board. This will be the base for your template.
Write your favourite word onto the paper. We decided to write family.
Use your hammer to place nails around the outline of each letter. Be careful not to space them too for apart and carefully include any corners or turns in your letters.
When you have added nails around all of the letters, remove the paper by pulling it off from around the nails.
You will now have just the outline made up of nails.
Use your yarn to wrap the nails by going around the inside in a criss-cross shape first,
and then around the outside to define your letters.
When you have finished filling in all of the letters you are ready to display your lovely sign!
I’m thinking of making another one for our reading corner next!
