Project Pinterest: String Word Art

I pinned the string word art idea from the Honey and Fitz blog. It was so beautiful! I knew I couldn’t compete, but thought I’d give it a shot. I didn’t follow her wonderful directions very well and substituted a lot of things. Probably the reason hers turned out beautifully and mine, not so much.

I didn’t want to use a piece of wood because anything I ever make with wood I never get it on the wall because that means I have to find a stud finder and who likes all those extra steps anyway? So, I painted a sturdy box instead. Then put a piece of paper on it and wrote our last name in a large bubble font. I then used 1” nails and gently pushed them in over the paper.


Then I carefully took off the paper and wrapped the embroidery floss all willy-nilly around the nails. It turned out HORRIBLY! I take 100% responsibility for that though. I didn’t take my time. I am so not a detail person and this is detailed project.

What I did get though, was something interesting to take pictures of. That’s more my style!


Of course Chewbacca had to get in on the action too. He got all sorts of tangled in the pink string. Poor guy. His probably would’ve looked about as good as mine!

Can't wait to see what you've made!

  1. ha ha ha!!! I LOVE this!! At least you have a sense of humor about it!! I saw the same type of thing and am going to attempt it soon! :)

  2. This is a cool idea. LOVE the photos! =)

  3. lol...your shots are definitely cool! :) I saw that pin with this technique and the state shapes...and I thought it looked like a lot of patience/work then!

  4. I give you credit for even trying this, I gave up halfway through reading those directions! At least you had something really cool to take pictures of!

    My pinterest project was a fail this week too, but I'm making a second attempt, so next week I'll either post a fail/success, or just an epic fail!

  5. Yeah, that's about what mine would look like too. lol Way to go for trying, though! You get bonus points for that and you really did get some cool shots.

    Thanks for hosting!
