Hello City Farmhouse friends! It’s Emily here again from The Wicker House! I have a really cool project that I am so excited to share with you today, I call it string art on the wall!
This string art wall project was one of those middle of the night ideas. I woke up the next morning and immediately started trying to figure out how I was going to create the look. I sketched out different patterns onto paper, but in the end I pretty much just made it up as I went along. I think it turned out great! It really adds a bit of a wow factor to the room, and so today I want to teach you how I did it so that you can create this same look in your own homes.
– Small nails
Step Two – Tie a long piece of yarn to each nail in the top row, but at the center nail add two long pieces of yarn.
Step Four – Take the piece of yarn on the right, pull straight down to the next nail, go around it and head over to the center nail, go around the center nail and back to the nail on the right. Again pull straight down to the next nail and over to the center. Continue creating a backwards E pattern until you get to the bottom row. Tie your yarn to the bottom center nail.
Step Five – Now take the string on the left and follow instructions for step four, but reversing the directions. This time you will make an E pattern. When you get to the bottom row, tie the yarn to the bottom center nail.
Okay, are you still with me? I know it sounds so much more complicated then it actually is, so I hope that my ‘football diagrams’ are helpful :).
Step Six – from the last step I decided I wanted even more lines, so I added one more piece of yarn to the top left and right nails. The diagram below shows the direction I took the last two pieces of yarn.
When I got to the bottom row, I tied the ends of the yarn to the center nail. I cut off all of the extra yarn that was remaining.
So this is how the final result looks:
As I said, I pretty much made my pattern up as I went along. You may find yourself doing the same and possibly come up with your own design. You could try using more nails, and /or several different colors of yarn. Have fun with it!
From start to finish this project only took about 30 minutes to complete. It was super simple to do, and yet it makes a big statement on the wall.
After my wall art was finished, I started straightening up the rest of the room. I switched the blanket on the daybed over and realized that it is almost the exact same pattern as the yarn wall. What a coincidence!
Here is a little peek into the rest of the room. I will be sharing more of it on my blog later this month.
