Raid the tool shelf for nails, scrap wood, and a hammer
Either trace your design lightly with a pencil onto your board, or lay your pattern (I cut mine free-handed on a piece of scrap paper) onto the wood and nail around it
If you’re doing an inlay-type-of-thing (the middle of the heart will be a string-free), be sure to nail around that part too.
Now channel your inner girl/boy scout and make a slip knot.
Decide where your starting point will be and slip the loop over a nail and tighten it. Start winding around nails. Either methodically or haphazardly. Whatever strings your art.
It should be looking pretty rad after a few minutes.
To finish, I wound my way back to the beginning nail, double knotted to the starting end, trimmed, and tucked it under. I also stuffed some craft felt in the spaces to add dimension and texture.
