ONE little MOMMA: DIY Nursery String Art- {Guest Post}

DIY Nursery String Art- {Guest Post}

|

Hi friends! My name is Jen and I blog at Delightful Deets.
I'm thrilled to be here today. I was super excited to meet Kilee at SNAP Conference and then super disappointed to find out how far away we lived from each other! She is beautiful inside and out and has such a darling little family!


I'm married to my sweetheart of almost 8 years and we have 3 little babes that get the majority of my attention and when I have some spare time I blog. I share furniture makeovers, recipes, fashion, and lately I've been sharing some parties. A couple have been for my kids (Ninja Turtle Party, Ruffles & Roses Party) and one was for my good friend who is having a baby girl any day now (Navy & Coral Baby Shower)

Last but not least, I host Elevate Blog Conference with a couple of my friends in Southern California. If you are in the area, we'd love to have you attend!
So that's me in a nutshell! Today I'm sharing a little piece I made for baby Knox's nursery.
When I was looking for craft ideas for Elevate, I stumbled upon this string art and was hooked. I knew it would be something different and unique, but a perfect thing to make while chatting.
After I saw Knox's nursery I thought one might go cute in his room.
There were little pops of green so a deer head in green it was!


 You can really make this as big or small as you want. This is on approximately a 7x9 piece of wood.
Print out a silhouette of whatever you'd like to use. A letter, number, anchor, state, animal, there are so many cute possibilities! Stain or paint your wood.


 Here are the nails that worked the best for us. Found at Lowes for $1.30.
Lay the paper down and nail around the outline. When you are finished, the paper easily rips off. To start tie a knot around a nail twice to be safe. Start wrapping! There are so many tutorials on Pinterest, but I would say if you are going right to left wrap counter clockwise so that the crochet thread is on the outside of the nail. If you are going from left to right it would be counter clockwise. I've heard it looks better on the outside of the nails and not the inside. When you are wrapping the thread make sure to push it down the nail so you can continue wrapping if you decide to come back through the pattern.


I used Red Heart Crochet Thread size 10. You don't need very much for a smaller board. At the end, tie 2 knots again and you are done! It's not very hard depending on the shape you do. The great thing is you can use as much or as little string as you want. It's not a craft that can be messed up. If you make a line you don't like, you can unwrap it. Time consuming, yes. Advanced, no.


Congrats Kilee and fam! I'm sending you flowers in pictures! Thanks for letting me visit today! Feel free to email me with any questions or just to say hi! delightfuldeets(at)gmail(dot)com

  1. I looove this! We are doing an outdoorsy theme for our first little one (I'm due in January!) and I love this string art picture. I will have to keep this in the back of my mind for when we actually get around to starting the nursery.

  2. Where did you find your silhouette? My husband loves to hunt, and I think he would love something like this as a gift.

    1. Hi Sheila! We got ours from the Silhouette store, but if you don't have a Silhouette, you can google deer head silhouette and a bunch of options come up! Hope that helps!
      Thanks!

  7. Gameplay’s fun – random shop sucks. Nice idea but it’s just too annoying to try to build the kind of tank trouble unblocked you want with randomness. Also, it’d be nice to be able to replay levels – tank trouble then we could mess with different weapons and stuff and see what’s up more easily.
