What Is String Art?

String art is weaving colored string, wool, wire, or yarn between hammered nails to make geometric patterns. You use lines of thread to create curved patterns that can form various desirable shapes. String art is quick and simple to make, and it also looks impressive if you want to give something handmade to your friends or family.

How To Make String Art?

Position the pattern on the piece of wood and use tape to secure it temporarily. With a hammer, lightly pound linoleum nails all the way around the paper pattern. Try to space them as evenly as possible and nail them to the same depth. To prevent your fingers from getting hit with the hammer, pinch each nail in a clothespin and hold that instead of the nail itself.

When the shape has been outlined completely with nails, remove the paper pattern. Using embroidery floss, outline the perimeter of the shape. Once you have outlined the shape with string, begin filling it in by crisscrossing and wrapping from nail to nail.
