Yarn Art and you can too!

A DIY Project

Yarn Art

In our DIY project of the week I decided to highlight this super creative and yet simplistic art piece. Yes, it may just be a bunch of nails and some yarn, but it's darn cool. The original poster was Whitney, a guest blogger on Kaliedub

Here is what you need. 

- A shape you want to create art around
- wood (I just had some left over from making shelves with)
- wire brads (the size I used were #18 x 5/8”) I found mine at home depot - hammer
- needle nose pliers (not necessary but very helpful)
- super glue (again not necessary but helpful)
- embroidery thread

Here is a great at work shot. Seems like a pretty simple idea, but I think you could life-hack this into some really sick ideas. Make it a surfboard? Yarn version of Jaws? Or how about go all elaborate and do a giant version of Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa. That would be... sick. Just filthy sick.

Check out the full project with more information and photos here.
