If you follow me on social media (if you don’t, click at the links at the bottom of this post for bookish photos and chat! (shameless self-promotion)), you may have noticed I’ve been a little absent the past couple of days.
This led to me researching into how the cover was actually made and wondering whether I could recreate something similar! I put this down as a note for a few months and never believed I could actually do it. Then one day, I just went out and bought the wood, cotton and the nails. I worked it all out, and I got started!
Within 5 days, here we are. I have a fully finished design of thread/string art with a design inspired by The Sun is Also a Star and a video to prove I did it!
Honestly, I really enjoyed this project and I’m proud of the finished result. It was monotonous, but very therapeutic and rewarding. I won’t write lots of steps about how I made it, but I basically printed out the cover, nailed an outline of the words and thread cotton between the nails in no particular pattern! To push the cotton down, I used a spoon, of all things.
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
