DIY String Art Monogram Tutorial

string art

Have you noticed that string art is all the rage?

I first discovered the concept when strolling the aisles of an antique store. There was a beautiful owl, created with only string and nails, and I knew I wanted to try the art form as soon as possible.

I finally had a chance to give string art a go, and I’m excited to share the process so you can, too!

Easy String Art Tutorial:

You’ll need:

  • Wood (any size/shape/style. I got this piece at Hobby Lobby for around $10)
  • Nails (the smaller, the better, I found)
  • Hammer
  • String (I used embroidery floss)
  • Optional: spray paint

First, you’ll need to pick your design. I struggled with this. I wanted to be super creative and do some kind of geometric pattern, animal with a bowtie, or mid-century design… but, I decided to keep it simple for this first attempt.

Start by making pencil marks on the wood, marking where your nails will go. You can also download and print patterns, if freehanding isn’t your jam.

Next, hammer the nails where you’ve marked. Cue: stress relief.

Once your nails are in place, you can do one of two things:

  1. Start stringing
  2. Start painting

I knew I wanted to paint my wood and nails gold (obviously), so I used metallic spray paint. It only took two coats and dried instantly.

Next, welcome yourself to String Town! I’m sure the string art purists out there would tell me that there’s a rhyme and reason for how you do this step. Diagonal, across, vertical, then diagonal, and repeat?

I’m not sure if there’s an actual method. For me, I just freestyled. I think that’s the secret, honestly. Just go crazy with it.

Tie off the end of the string, and add a dot of glue if makes you nervous to leave those ends hanging. Then, you’re done.

Seriously, how easy is that?

I’m excited to try more detailed string art projects now (that animal wearing a bow tie, perhaps). And, I hope you’ll give it a try yourself.

Share your string art projects with me – I’d love to see them!
