I made this string art for my boyfriend's birthday! First, I nailed the outline of Indiana and the Purdue logo. next, I used old gold strong for the Purdue 'P' and then continuously strung black string to fill out the rest of the state. It ended up taking over 2 hours by the time I covered every part of the state. ( it would have been easier to paint in the state and use less string) He absolutely loved it!!
