String Art Ideas

Ideas to make your own String Art craft.

One of the most amazing female artists and one of our favorites is the mexican Frida Kahlo. Her protraits are very famous and his physical appearance too, is for that reason that today we have thought about making some Frida Kahlo String Art and we have searched some ideas to inspire you.

FRIDA KAHLO STRING ART TEMPLATES

As a template four can use an image or her or maybe a drawing or one of her portraits paintings, but there are two elements that are basic to represent Frida and they must be in the String Art: the two eyebrows joined and flowers over her head. Here you have two templates that maybe they have used to create these artworks:

FRIDA KAHLO STRING ART: DISTINCTIVE TRAITS

 

Frida Kahlo String Art

As you can see in this String Art (sorry, we haven’t found the credits, if it yours, please let us know), Frida Kahlo is represented with distinctive traits, as real flower on her head, eyebrows joined, big red lips and two big earrings. We really love the purple hair and the pink pashmina.

Frida Kahlo String Art 3

In this one, we have less distinctive traits but we are able to recognize her: hair updo with flowers, eyebrows joined and red lips.

 

Another one very similar Frida Kahlo String Art made by Kimerly Marie but she adds the element of a big necklace that she usually wore. Pay attention to the fact the flowers are real too.

FRIDA KAHLO STRING ART: FULL FACE

 

Frida Kahlo String Art 2

If you prefer make a Frida Kahlo String Art with her full face, here you have a wonderful one made by @yovsgh and based on a geometric drawing shown above. It’s really beautiful and we can see another time flowers over this head and big earrins.

Frida Kahlo String Art 4

@mialazoqro has chosen the same drawing but she has used brighter threads and the contrast is higher. Spectacular!

We hope that you have enjoyed these Frida Kahlo String Art and that know you are fancy making one similar. Enjoy it!

 

If you have not tested it yet, try it: making String Art projects is one of the most relaxing things in the world! Now that the summer is coming and maybe you’ll have a little extra free time to make your DIY projects, take a look to this one because it’s gorgeous!

Flamingo String Art 3

As you can see, it’s a flamingo, one of the most extraordinay and curios and strange animal. Its look is perfect for the summer. You can see flamingo prints everywhere because its image it’s refreshing and cooling. This flamingo String Art seen on La Buhardilla would be a perfect DIY piece of art to decorate your living room, office or even your studio, shop or café.

 

MATERIALS YOU NEED

Flamingo String Art 1

To make this wonderful Flamingo String Art you will need these materials on the image above:

  • Wooden board
  • Flamingo template
  • Tracing paper or scissors
  • Hammer
  • Nails
  • White, black and flamingo pink thread

FLAMINGO TEMPLATE

FLAMINGO STRING ART STEP BY STEP

It would be useful to draw the flamingo shape on the board. You can cut the shape and fix it on the board or maybe you can use a tracing paper to draw it.
Flamingo String Art 2

The next step, as you maybe already know, it’s hammer the nails around the flamingo shape. It’s very important to hammer them marking the most important points in the shape and trying to keep an equidistant distance between them. Then, you have to be patient and start to interwave or interwine the threads. Enjoy this process, it would take a little bit because you have to pass the threads a lot of times, but it worth it.

Do you have any question about the process? If you do, write us in “Comments” o send us a message via Twitter or Facebook and we’ll try to answer it as soon as possible. Thanks for reading us!

 

Hey, guys! How are you doing? We are great and, as always, searching for new and original ideas to make new String Art projects. Today we want to show you this idea because we think that it’s perfect to give as a present to a gentleman: a Bow tie String Art. The shape is funny and easy to make.

First of all, here you have the bow tie template. Free download, as usual!
Bow tie String Art free tenplate

Once you have printed the template, maybe you already know that you have to put it on a board (wood or cardboard) and pin nails following the shape. Remove the paper template and the next step is to tie the threads over the pins and make this kind of net.

Let’s take a look to these designs!

Bow tie String Art for men

This one i’ts a cute bowtie String Art made by HeartlandHomes. It’s a good idea to use a black wooden board and white string. It’s nice also to paint the initials of the name using acrylic paint. Try to use a fancy and elegant calligraphy.

This bowtie String Art made by OneRoots has a vintage style (because of the natural wood colour and the yellow string) and it’s perfect for the modern gentlemen. We could image this String Art as a shop or barbershop wall decoration. Very nice one!

Bow tie String Art for babies

Maybe if you want to give a bowtie String Art as a present for a nebowrn child it’s better to make it on a pale wooden board and use baby blue colour strings or threads. Pay attention to the “little gentleman” painted on thew because it’s very cute! This piece was made by Naileditartbydian. It’s no longer avaliable on her Etsy Shop but maybe you can make it youself or ask her to make another customized one.

Top hat, moustache and bowtie String Art DIY

Finally, we have this amazing composition made by beat-it2. As you can see it’s a top hat, moustache and bowtie String Art and it’s great as a handmade gift to a father, boyfriend or brother, specially if they love this style and they consider themselves as a gentelmen.

As always, we hope you have loved these String Art projects and we encourage you to try similar ideas. See you soon!

This heart shaped String Art made by Debbie McLauchlin is easy to make and very very sweet. As you can see, there are two hearts, a little one inside one another and the word “Mum” it’s also written with strings and nails. It’s a handmade craft suitable to make with kids, so go ahead.

Creativity is infinite and boundless, so we keep searching and finding new designs to make plenty of String Art projects. Today we want to show you this kind of challenge in Versus Youtube Channel where two girls try to make a String Art: one of them creates a Facebook Thumbs Up symbol and, the other one, creates the “Versus” word. Let’s take a look to the process:

As you can see, the symbol has won the challenge and it looks a little bit better than “Versus”, so let’s focus on this one. First of all, you need a thumbs up template:

You can download this pattern in full size to print in this link: Thumbs Up Template

Then, you put the pattern on the board and pin the nails over the shape using a hammer. Once you finished, remove the pattern and start to cross the threads over the nails. We recommend you to use three tones of blue, one darker to the edges, one lighter to the cuff and one even lighter to the hand. Add some red to the cuff button!

We hope you like this project and enjoy making them! This is a nice low cost project to decorate your bedroom, so let’s go.
