Personalize a dry erase board with your word of the year - or anything else! Get the free Cricut cut file - choose joy! - and make your own!

For the first time ever, I’ve decided to choose a word for the year. If you haven’t heard of this, you choose a word that you want to focus on or celebrate this year. You can do this with New Year’s Resolutions or all on its own.

A sweet friend of mine recently gave me this gorgeous candle. It smells awesome and says JOY on it! I’ve loved it so much and love the idea of filling the room – and life – with joy! (even the smell of joy…) So, joy is my word of the year.

Personalize a dry erase board with your word of the year - or anything else! Get the free Cricut cut file - finding joy! - and make your own!

To help focus on joy, I’m creating several visual reminders.

I thought a dry erase board would be a perfect spot for a reminder since it’s where I’m jotting down other reminders.

I found this awesome board at Target for five bucks.

This month's $10 at Target is all about getting organized, setting goals for the new year, and Valentine's Day prep! Get ideas for your home & family!

Next, I designed the lettering with a cute font and uploaded to Cricut Design Space.

String art projects are such a fun way to create personal and customized decor. They make great gifts and are fun for kids elementary age and up!

Why “&”

About a year ago, I started collecting ampersands (& symbol) art. I love the symbol and what it stands for. And – there’s more. And – no matter the crisis, this isn’t the end. And – set your goal and follow through. So hopeful and motivating to think ahead! So, I wanted to create something to focus on moving forward. That’s my inspiration for this project!

Supplies Needed

  • Wood board (softer wood is easier)
  • 1″ Wire Brads or Nails
  • Hammer
  • Crochet Thread, size 10
  • White Paint
  • Painters tape
  • Cheap paintbrush
  • Wood arrow

Make your string art project

Board Prep

  1. Measure to find the middle of your board lengthwise. Use a ruler to lightly draw a line across.
  2. Stick painters tape on one side of the pencil line.
    It's easy to make your own string art projects with these helpful tips! Design your own or make this project with a free printable pattern!
  3. Using a dry brush, lightly brush paint along the angle you’d like your stripes to go. Do a few more lines to use as a guide.
    *Hint – dry brushing can flip little specks of paint around so use a drop cloth or work in an area where this won’t be a problem.

  4. Fill in paint until you like how it looks. I left mine pretty rustic.

  5. Let it dry, then peel off the tape.
  6. Stick another piece of tape over the edge of the painted area. You want the paint to meet, so you can even leave a tiny bit of paint showing.

  7. Use your ruler to help find what looks like the opposite angle of the stripes you’ve painted. You can be fancy and measure or just eyeball it.

Now for the string art

  1. Print your design, line it up where you like it on the board, and tape it down.
    It's easy to make your own string art projects with these helpful tips! Design your own or make this project with a free printable pattern!
  2. Hammer nails around the edges. I put mine about 1/3″ apart.
  3. Work across your board, hammering the nails firmly enough in that they won’t tip with a little pressure,
  4. Once you have the nails in, pull your paper off. You don’t want to skip this step – it would be really hard to get off after the thread is on.
  5. Tie your thread tightly on one of the nails. Outline your project by threading around each nail, with the thread on the outside of the outline.

  6. Fill in threads with a pattern, or randomly. I love the look of random for this project!
  7. Work your way all around, change colors if that’s part of your plan, then tie off tightly when finished.

  8. Outline your project again to give a clean finishing look. Pull your threads to the inside of the work to hide them.
Enjoy!

Tips for string art projects

  • Use softer wood to make it easier to get the nails where you want them.
  • Avoid wood with knots.
  • Be sure the nails aren’t going through the back of the board.
  • Start with outlining your project by taking the thread around the outside of the nails, wrapping around each nail as you go.
  • Finish your project by outlining again. This gives it a nice, clean look.
  • Wrap the thread around each nail before moving on or occasionally throughout the process. It will help you keep the thread taut so you won’t have to pull as hard.
  • Every so often, look at the board at an angle. The nails should be going in pretty straight. If they aren’t, fix the problem ones.
    It's easy to make your own string art projects with these helpful tips! Design your own or make this project with a free printable pattern!
  • Throughout the process, place your hand on the nails you’ve already put in to see if any feel way higher or lower than the others. It will help you stay consistent.
  • If you need to take a break, keep the thread taut and wrap it around your board a few times so you can set it down without the whole things loosening up.
    It's easy to make your own string art projects with these helpful tips! Design your own or make this project with a free printable pattern!
  • Work from one side of your board to the other. It can be really awkward to get nails in the middle of an area that already has a few nails.
