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.

 

Heeey! If you are looking for an easy String Art for begginer or for make with kids and teenagers, maybe this video made by Diego Rojas will help you.

As you can see, you only have to nail the nails in a wooden board following the line of a circle. We recommend to print the shape or draw it using a pencil and then pin the nails around it. After that, you must cross the threads in the order you can see on the video. Then, repeat the process twice using some different colours and that’s it.
An that’s all! You will have a perfect handmade project to decorate a wall.

Lately I’m quite obsessed with mandalas and its geometric shapes and repetitions. I really have a good time drawing them. It’s very relaxing and creative. In addition, once you have the mandala drawn, colored or made, it’s a nice piece of decoration and, if you love meditate or you practice yoga, it’s a good point to focus your mind while you try to reach the Nirvana.
Today we have searched a good tutorial to show you how to make a beautiful Mandala String Art full of colors. Here you have a nice video made by Diônatan Bertelli

As you see, you will need:

  • Round shaped wooden board (painted in black, white or the color you like the most
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • White, soft purple, dark purple, soft or pastel green and turquoise threads.
  • Picture or Frame Hangers.(

The process is simple and I think that you already know it, but as you can see on the video, it’s about to tie the thread into one nail and its opposite and repeat it until you have finished. It’s better to watch the videotutorial to be sure that you’re doing it right.

Andrea Vlogger Gt show us in this video 2 ways to make a String Art DIY, the “inverse way”, filling with thread all the space left outside the main figure, in this case, a heart and, on the other side, the classic way, filling the figure, in this case, the word “love”, written whith a lovely handwritting typo.
As you can see, she paints the board in blue and in pink. The thing I like the most is that she uses jute or sacking thread to make this project and it looks really great. Don’t you think so?

It’s a really lovely handmade gift to your boyfriend or girlfriend, no matter if it is because of your love, your anniversary or Valentine’s Day.

Well, as always, we engourage you to send your String Art project to us via Twitter @stringartdiy and Facebook String Art DIY!
