i aslo made an anchor :)



  1. 2 feet x 2 feet and about 3/4" thick ...but you can use any size. The bigger the more interesting the piece. Try CDX plywood at a hardwood store. It is cheap and can be cut in any size. It is smooth on one side and has a pretty wood finish to it that makes it look more expensive because the spray paint allows the wood finish to show through. It is also quite easy to nail into.

    Good luck!

  2. I am in the process of making one! I am super excited for the final product!!!

  3. Ok maybe this is a silly question but are you using coloured string or spraying that too?

  4. What type of string do you use? I am going to make one and don't know if I should use yarn or string.

  5. Love it!! I made something similar for my blog
    Have a look and let me know what you think!
