Inspired by string art, Ryan took this blank wall in his loft and transformed it into what looks like a wireframed wood of birch trees:
What a great use of a little wall! Here it is up close:
A quick look on the internet showed my friend's cute little Ohio-shaped project was all over Pinterest. I wanted to take mine to the next level and create something that was fresh, beautiful, and had never been done before. I decided on a color for the wall, purchased 350 clear thumb tacks from a local store, and one large ball of white cotton yarn. Total price? $23 (including paint). The labor was incredibly easy and fun, and took 5 hours on a rainy Saturday afternoon. The tall birch trees add height and depth to the wall. I absolutely love how they turned out and can't wait to start my next yarn project.
Thank you Ryan!
