Rustic nail and string art state ornaments

I love it when a creative bender ends somewhere fabulous! My sister loves NYC and I wanted to make her some kind of ornament to put on her Christmas tree to remind her of a place that is really special to her. And this is what I came up with:

Mini rustic nail and string art NY state ornament!

I seriously LOVE how this turned project turned out!! So much so that I decided to add these state string art ornaments to my etsy shop. My sister is going to love this ornament! 

I love them so much that I made one for each of the states we've lived in since we got married. 

One of my customers is ordering one for each state her kids were born in and letting them choose the string color (awesome!). I love that there are so many ways to personalize this gift to make it meaningful for the recipient. Plus they look gorgeous against the dark foliage of a Christmas tree! 

I won't rehash the specifics of how to do this project since I know there are tons of nail and string art tutorials out there. Just follow the tutorial you find, but do everything on a mini scale! 


  1. I LOVE these! They are so cute and fun. I think I might try making one of these (but maybe bigger, to hang on the wall--do you think that's too ambitious? Should I start small?) for Jeff for Christmas with his home state (PA). Cross your fingers for me :-)

  2. this is so awesome!! i'm definitely going to try this out!! (and I'm sure you'll sell a bunch too!)

  3. Oh my gosh. This is so cool. Love that they are a small version. And now I want to make them for our tree.

    So inspired!

    Thanks for linking up to Dare to DIY!

  5. Oh goodness. I want. I need to make! Fabulous gift idea!
