String it up

Baseball season is in full swing, and while I may not be an Atlanta Braves fan, my brother definitely is! I have posted ‘string art’ before, so I will make this short incase anyone is wanting an easy project. You will need: string or yarn, small nails, a hammer, a wooden board and paint or stain if you want to change the look of the wood.
The steps are simple… cut your board to size (and paint or stain it if you’d like), print the word or shape you would like and place the print on the board, use your hammer to outline the print in nails and finally use your string and wrap it from nail to nail until you’re happy with the look. Don’t worry if you can’t cut the board yourself, most all home improvement stores will cut a few pieces for you at no charge when you purchase from them. When you’re stringing the yarn from nail to nail try and make it as random as possible and in all directions. Don’t forget to tie a tight knot at your beginning and ending points!
I hope my brother knows I must really love him to make a Brave’s sign in this SF Giant’s house! Happy weekending everyone!
