Valentine's Day Love Wall String Art

Valentine's Day Love Wall String Art

String art looks complicated, but it's actually a fun project that comes together quickly (even with kids involved) and makes a great Valentine's Day decor idea. 

Paint a piece of lightweight wood your desired color. Trace a heart shape using a pencil, and stencil the outline of the love letters, or another word of your choosing. Tap thin nails on the outlines of the shape and word, spacing them about 1/2 inch apart. Loop a thin yarn or string from nail to nail, across, up and down, and side to side, until you achieve the desired look.
