Do you remember nail pictures?
They were craft sets that comprised of a wooden board, a bunch of nails and loads of wire or thread. I think you had to supply the hammer and most certainly the sticking plasters!
They were a Christmas staple in the Sixties and a popular gift for both kids and grown-ups. They were second only to painting by numbers for regimented handiwork i.e. tedium.
To create a picture you followed a nailing pattern, tacking in the nails where shown and then following the instructions for winding the wire or thread round them.
In this way you created an instant nail and thread masterpiece for the living room wall or bedroom shelf.
Common designs I recall were stars and boats. The star looked like a spirograph pattern for the wall.
Ultimately they became very artistic dust traps and are very much of their time although my Missus informs me that they are still available in all good craft shops! Blimey.
