Montana String Art

Like everyone else on Pinterest these days, I have been wanting to make my own string art. Having just left my beloved Montana, I thought what better way to bring MT to my new home.

The string is a nice bright green, but it seems to be shy and look white :(

Things I learned:

- The nails looked better the more I hammered them in, but then they poked through the back. Careful!

- Staining plywood is awkward. Definitely leave it to sit longer than you might a good piece of wood.

- The heart is harder than it seems. I had to wrap mine with string for it to really show up as a heart.

Can't wait to make another one! I think I am going to try a word or saying next!
