This was a fun and easy craft (once all of the nails where hammered in!:)
- wood board
- paint or stain
- thick string(color of your choice)
- the outline of your state or object
Paint or stain board and let dry overnight. I started hammering the nails too soon after the paint dried and the wood started to crack.
Tape the outline of the state in the desired spot.
Hammer the nails in around the state, making sure the you don't have them too close together.
Take paper off board.
This is the thread I used and it worked great! Embroidery floss works great as well.
I wanted all of the outside nails to be connected to the inside or heart nails.
My friend Kristen did Idaho as well because her and her husband are from there. She just did a different pattern that looks so awesome!
We love Idaho!
