string or wool in your favourite colour
stencil of a simple image or design
Using the stencil, trace the design onto your wall in pencil
Using the pencil, add points along the design to plot out where the nails will eventually go
Hammer in the nails half way on your plotted points
Tie one end of the string or wool to a nail, and start the weave in and out of the nails – try to wind the string around opposite nails each time to create a fun effect. Keep the string tight the whole way through, then tie the end to another nail, underneath the weaving to hide the join.
If you can’t hammer the nails straight into your wall, try this out on a piece of wood first, then hang!
