    I use 16 gauge 3/4 inch nails. They seem to work well and have just large enough of a head that they hold the floss well. I tried yarn, thread, and embroidery floss (the kind that comes in skiens), but ended up on the fine crochet floss that comes on a roll. Uts thick enough to show the color well, but thin enough to wrap easily.
    Also, in order to get the best bang for my buck, I bought a 1’x6′ raw board at Home Depot and had the associate cut them into 12″x12″ squares for me. It needed as little sanding on the edges, but after staining, ended up looking really nice.

    is there anything else that could be used other than wood? I would like to do this with the ladies lunch craft group at the libray. hamer & nails would take to long as we only have 1.5 – 2 hrs.

      I think that would be enough time if you did a small and relatively simple design. I don’t think anything other than wood would hold the nails in place very well. They would fall over.

      You could make boards out of corrugated cardboard. Just layer them (maybe 4 layers) then wrap them in scrapbook paper or cardstock.

    I loved string art as a kid, (30+ years ago), first one I made said “I Love my dad”…it hung in his garage for a lot of years, I found it in his box of faves after he died. You can do pretty much any design you choose with this & make it as large as you want…get creative!
