Hope to see you there,
love it! How old were you when you learned to hammer in nails?
Ah! For sure I was 5, but maybe even a bit younger than that!
I used to love doing these when I was younger but only did those dull 70s geometric designs. This is far more creative. Looks fab! 🙂
Well, I kind of (really) want to get my hands on one of those old kits from the 70s! I think they look like fun!
Wow, that’s amazing! I live in Cambridge, UK and thought that I could do similar to yours with the whole Great Britain and my town. Oh, I so want to make it!
Yeah! Do it!
So creative! How far apart did you space your nails and what size nails did you choose?
Aaah . . . they are very small nails — a half inch or less (?) They’re about a quarter inch apart — as close as I could get them! In some parts, I had to hold the nail with a little pliers while I pounded it in.
um I was just wondering is there any type of pattern that you fallow with the string and how do you tie it off at the end I would love to make just a heart shaped one for my mother her birthday is coming up I think she would love it.
The string pattern is random. I kinda tried to do “wide strokes” to start, then fill in with more detail/string where I thought it needed it. To tie off, I wrapped the string really tight around the nail I ended on (just a couple times), then tied an overhand knot as close as I could to the nail shaft. Then, I put a dab of clear nail polish over the knot for extra security.
