DIY 'nail art'

Bonjour ma Cheries,

Today's post will be a DIY which I'm quite excited about! It was really fun and simple to do and only took one hour at most. It actually looks really cute on a shelve as a decoration or you can even give it to someone as a gift! 

I'd love to see it if you've recreated this DIY so send me a picture of it on my Instagram or twitter @atouchofrosa

Lots of Love,
Rosa








So the things you will need are:

- a piece of wood in the shape you like (I chose simple square)
-nails
- a hammer
- wool yarn in any colour you like



Start with cutting the shape you want to make out of paper so you have a stencil.
Then place it onto the wood. The best thing to do is to tape the stencil to the wood so it won't move.




Then start hitting the nails into the wood with your hammer. Place the nails about two centimeters apart from each other. And once you're done remove the stencil.






Tie the end of your yarn to one of the nails. I chose the bottom one because that's the best to start with.
Then go around all the nials randomly with your yarn until you have done all of them. Keep on tying the yarn to the nails but make sure you eventually follow the line of your shape.
Then keep on doing that until you have something around three layers of yarn between every two nails.





So if you've chosen a heart shape like me it should look something like this!
