Remember string art? It’s one of those ’70s-era handicrafts that fell out of fashion, along with macramé and rug hooking. All three are making a comeback, though – I’m sure of it. I’ve seen a lot of awesome applications of string art recently (and check out the logo in the May 2012 issue of Wired UK). This simple version, which uses a cork board instead of wood as a base, inspired me to make my own.
- Nails with large heads (I used drywall nails)
- Cork board, thick enough to hold the nails
- String, yarn, embroidery floss or thread
- Tracing paper and pencil
