Hi guys! Dina here from Honey & Fitz back with another tutorial. This time I’m showing you how to make some string art for your little one’s room! Rather than deal with hammers and cutting wood, I decided to do this project using cork tiles. Not only are they easy to find and inexpensive, they’re also very light weight so you don’t have to worry about them falling off the wall and hurting anyone. Here are the supplies you’ll need: Cork tiles // Linoleum Nails // 3M Hanging Strips // Contact Cement Stack the cork tiles on top of each other and use your contact cement to glue them together. I really wanted the look of a white background for my string art so I decided to paint the cork. Once the paint has dried, flip your cork tile over and apply your hanging strips.
Create your template using whatever font you like. When you’ve traced the entire template, carefully remove the paper.

Here’s how to make your own! : MATERIALS // 25 pieces of cardboard measuring 10″ x 10″, straight edge ruler, a pencil, glue, utility knife with plenty of extra blades. STEPS // 01 MEASURE YOUR TEMPLATE Using the straight edge and a pencil, measure a 1″ border on one piece of cardboard. 02 // CREATE TEMPLATE Once you have everything measured out, use a utility knife to cut out each compartment to create a template. 03 // MAKE YOUR PIECES Using your template, you’ll cut out 20 sheets of cardboard, like this: 04 // GLUE PIECES TOGETHER First, glue 5 uncut pieces of cardboard together to create a bottom. 05 // KEEP GLUING Next, take the 10 pieces that have the two cutouts and glue them right on top of the stack of cardboard.
