February Craft Class – Valentine String Art January 26, 2014

We have a craft planned for our February session that you’ll just love! String art is making a come-back and boy do we have some amazing tips and tricks in helping you create the most wonderful Valentine treat. Crafters will have the opportunity to choose from 2 Valentine themed designs: Love & Heart-N-Home. OR if you’d rather have a more traditional layout, you can choose a Monogram in either Script or Traditional type font.

If you have a hair dryer, hammer & needle-nose pliers bring ‘em. We’ll have some available, BUT depending upon how many crafters we have sign up . . . well . . . if you have your own, you won’t have to share and/or wait to get craftin’.

If the complexity of the class concerns you, don’t worry. We had our kids try it out first and they soared! Peek at the photo, that’s why it’s best to bring your own hammer and pliers. The pliers will save your fingers!

To register, send us an email at: craftredo@aol.com

When you register we need to know:
Your background paint color,
Thread color,
AND
1 design choice:
Love,
Heart-N-Home,
Monogram letter (Be sure to let us know which letter and which type font: Script or Traditional, you would like to use.) If you DO choose the Monogram style, we suggest picking the Traditional style. The Script is a little more advanced. AFTER attending the class you’ll feel confident to tackle the Script.

When selecting your background color and thread color, we suggest choosing contrasting colors. We found that dark backgrounds with light thread work best.

The great thing about this craft is you can give the craft all year round. My youngest son gave it to his teacher for a Christmas present. His teacher currently still displays the heart board in her entryway.

For a full ‘run down’ on how to craft this lovely project, reference:

Wood and Ribbon Cross Craft – Praise and Coffee the Magazine

You’ll need to download the heart template:

HEART TEMPLATE

On the template you will notice black and gray dots. We generally use the black dots, if you are reducing or enlarging the project you may find a different dot works better for your project. We wanted to offer other solutions for dot placement.
