Kraft Monster : String Heart

String Heart


• Piece of wood – the bigger the more dramtic!
• String – we used the pink neon thin rope you can find at Home Depot, but you could use any yarn or string
• Box of nails (if want a nail with a decent head so the string won’t pop off)
• Spray paint to paint the wood
• White paper to draw the heart on


Step 1: Spray paint the wood the background color you picked. We used dark gray, so the pink would really pop
Step 2: Once the paint is dry, tape the wood with the white paper and draw the heart shape on the paper
Step 3: Time to get the hammer out! Nail around the entire outline of the heart – we spaced our nails about an inch apart.

Step 4: Once all your nails are in. Remove the white paper and throw it away.

Step 5: Now the fun part. Get your string and tie a knot around the head of one of the nails. Keep stringing the string around nails. There isn’t a right or wrong way – just keep going until you like the pattern you created. I also then outlined the entire heart to make the outline pop a bit more also.
