Type + Craftiness + Hardware = *sigh*

Posted in: art, typography- Dec 01, 2011 Comments Off on Type + Craftiness + Hardware = *sigh*

Today I will let you in on one of my geekier sides… DIY craftiness!

I usually like making things that have a function, like these cool hypertufas my crafty friends and I made (these are still in their molds): hypertufas!

Here’s a beautiful finished one that’s been left out to weather.







But every now and then, I come across a DIY project that has no other purpose than to add visual interest, and, in this case, a dose of nostalgia!

As Chris Gardner writes in his blog, this project is a two-fer! Not only do you get to go to the craft store, but the hardware store too.  Ahhh, how I love both. (Not to mention, there’s typography involved (if you so choose))!

So click on through to read how to make your own string art.

Happy crafting, noodling, twining, and creating!
