Use household tweezers to help remove paper template from plaque. The tweezers will help with any tiny paper scraps that are caught in between nails.
To start, tie string in a double knot to the point of one nail. Trim excess string from the end. Keep string taut and start wrapping around nails, making sure to not cross over any negative space within the monogram.
Once you feel that you have covered the surface of your art with enough string so the letter is nicely defined, you're ready to finish. To do that, pick an end point, preferably one on the outside of the project, then tie a tight knot around the nail. Tip: Make sure it's tied nice and tight so your project doesn't come unraveled.
