Step 3: Pattern and Hammering process

Hammer nails into each of the corners of the vase as pictured. (Download the template from here). This will create an outline for the string art vase. Rip the paper away when you are done nailing.

Step 4: String art

Tie the twine onto one of the nails, and begin twisting the twine around the nail heads. Continue connecting the nail heads with lines of twine until the outline of the vase is visible. You can use the printed template as a guide for the lines if needed.

I pulled some twine through the holes left in the pallet board by the original nails. This created a hanger that I could use to hang my welcome sign up with. It makes a lovely, rustic piece of decor to decorate the front of my home with.
