NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: Trying the String Art Trend

All you need is a bunch of nails, some string, and a great teacher to create beautiful works of art.

On Friday, October 13th, Shawna Fibikar from Strung by Shawna was our Special Guest on WQAD News 8 at 11am for our weekly "Nailed It Or Failed It" segment. She showed Jesyka Dereta and Jonathan Ketz how to hammer nails to make a design and wrap string to create something unique for your home or a great gift for a loved one. Check out what they did by clicking the video above and see if they "Nailed It Or Failed It" in the video below:
