DIY String Art Wedding Sign

In sixth grade one of my favorite art projects was a string art project that involved designing a pattern and then creating it in three dimensions using a piece of scrap lumber, nails and string. I can remember precisely pounding in each nail, stringing them with colorful thread and then painstakingly painting each nail head with hot pink nail polish for a little bit of extra color. I loved every minute of that art project and was reminded of that love when I spied this awe-inspiring DIY wedding sign on Head vs. Heart. My love for typography made me even more smitten with this sign. I can see this turning into inspiration for a welcome sign or a piece of wall art boasting our new house number when we move into our new home. ¬†Or for those of you expecting little ones, an adorable piece of art for your nursery showcasing the name of your new family member. Of course, it’s awesome as wedding signage, too. Absolutely brilliant, in fact.

I might be tackling this one in the near future, so I’ll be sure to share full DIY instructions if I do. In the meantime, you can check out this string art how-to to get you started.
