February-Real Life Pinterest Project

Hey Everyone!

We have our February Pinterest Craft, we will be doing String Art!! Yay! The materials you'll need to have for this project are:

Nails- get 3/4" nails or use your judgement on what you want to work with(you can buy in bulk at places like ace hardware, they charge by the pound) 

Wood- this is what you'll be hammering your nails into. I have also used cork, if you layer the flat sheets together it holds the nails and is a lot easier to hammer.

String- I suggest getting a thinner piece of string like the yarn they use for friendship bracelets, but again this is completely up to you.

Hammer- We will have some of these is you don't own one or forgot it

Pencil- tracing your state

Outline of your state- I'm going to do SC but again it's up to you

Paint-*Optional* this is to paint your background, but if you do bring paint bring a brush. 

The event is only $5 (cash only) to come hang out and craft with cool fun people at Rock Paper Scissors Studio! Can't wait to hang out with everyone!

    Question: are festive adult beverages (byob, obviously) permitted?

      Yes, but we would rather have it not consumed while we are using heavy artillery haha, just so nobody gets a thumb hammered. But def while we are doing the yarn and painting part, you can do what you like!

    I'd love to do a valentines-related project. Here's an idea I'm planning to work on ~ thought I'd post it to see if the group wants to do it together :)

    I'm completely new to this, but I am very interested in the bail string art!!! I have been planning on starting it myself but confused on how to approach. If we choose this one, let me know what supplies people are bringing so I can follow suit!
