DIY Project | String Heart Art

We love DIY wedding projects! When we found this DIY string art tutorial from Green Wedding Shoes, we knew we had to share it with you! We love the string heart but this tutorial would look great with an ampersand, your new last names or your wedding date. The possibilities are endless and this would make a great conversation piece to have in your home after your special day!

Materials Needed:

  • piece of wood - the bigger the more dramatic!
  • string - we used pink neon thin rope you can find at Home Depot, but you could use any yarn or string
  • box of nails (you want a nail with a decent head so the string won't pop off)
  • spray paint or stain for the wood
  • white paper to draw the heart on
Step 1: Spray paint the wood the background color you picked. We used dark gray so the pink would really pop
Step 2: Once the paint is dry, tape the wood with white paper and draw the heart shape on the paper
Step 3: Time to get the hammer out! Nail around the entire outline of the heart - we spaced our nails about an inch apart
