Fall Leaf Nail & String Art {Bakers Twine Week!}

I am obsessed with baker’s twine since I got my sample pack from The Twinery!! This stuff is so much fun!! I wanted to think of something that I hadn’t seen before, that was also fall related and this is what I came up with:

To make my fall leaf string art, I started with a square board. I had sanded the edges for splinters.

Then I gave it a couple of coats of gold paint.

I found a leaf shape online and printed it out to use as my templates.

I cut it out and traced it on the board.

I grabbed some tiny nails and then nailed along the line all the way around. About a quart of an inch or so apart.

Once all the nails are in place, I grabbed a few fall colored bundles of twine.

I tied it to a nail and the wrapped it around a few times.

I kept changing colors until it was full of twine and I had wrapped a piece around the whole edge to give it definition.

I am happy with the way it came out!

Make sure to stop by tomorrow!!
