String art is a really fun easy way to do art with your kids.
Trace a shape like a heart or your child's hand, the state you live in, or the first letter of your child's name on a piece of plywood. Nail finishing or upholstery nails into piece of plywood about a 1/4 inch apart on the traced line.
Next is the fun part, let your little prince or princess pick out the color string they would like to do and tie one end onto a nail and let them go at it until the shape forms. Follow the link at the bottom of the post for a full tutorial from Green Wedding Shoes.
Every time I go to Anthropologie my daughter and I oooooo and ahhhhhhhh at the different handmade decor that hangs around the store and in the windows. When I stumbled across this amazing DIY garland I just hat to share! This will be one of the first projects I do when I get back home!
Can we stop the bus!!!!!!!!! I am blown away by this DIY, what a cool, amazing, wonderful, fantastic (do you get the paint I like it yet?) idea for a handmade flower! I am picturing these at my daughters birthday party this summer, or tied to the headboard of her bed.
