When we aim to make a String Art, the sources of inspiration are many. One of them is the works of fiction we love, whether it is a book, a film or a TV show, even a videogame.
Today we want to show you several works of String Art inspired by novels. They are perfect to decorate our home if we are big readers , as well as being a good idea to give to someone who loves a writer or a certain books series. Here we go!
The Song of Fire and Ice
“The Song of Fire and Ice” is a great example of how a novel can be full of inspiration when it comes to creating String Art pieces. So, for example, we can choose the coat of arms of our favourite family, as in this case, which is the Stark coat of arms, and put leaves from the books in the background.
Wings of Fire
Have you heard of wings of fire books? If you have young children, you probably have. It is a series of fantasy novels that focus on the life and adventures of young dragons. If your children are fans of this series, you can make String Arts of different dragons that appear on the covers of the books. What do you think of the idea to decorate their rooms?
And do you know the Wimpy Kid diaries? I’m sure I do, I used to give them to my nephew when he was little, so I keep a great memory of them. Reading the Wimpy Kid series is a good way for our little ones to become fond of reading, as they are funny, amusing and entertaining, as the same misfortunes happen to him as to any teenager.
It is very easy to make String Arts of Wimpy Kid, since the figures of their characters are very simple. All you have to do is print a template like the one we bring you and trace the threads on the silhouette and fill in some element like the backpack or the trousers.
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings
Tolkien has touched the lives of many of us, especially novels like The Hobbit and The Lords of the Rings! There are so many String Arts that you can do inspired by these novels that it is difficult to choose one, so we have chosen two: one with the Tree of Gondor and another with all the characters in one of the journeys.
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the best known novels in the world and with more fans. As you surely know, it tells the adventures of buccaneers and buried treasures, where the presence of sailing ships, pirates, treasure maps and parrots is very big, so you can choose one of these elements to make a nice String Art. Sailing ships are very common in the String Arts tradition, so it is a good choice.
We hope that you liked the idea of making a String Art based on a novel and that you take into account our proposals. Reading is one of life’s great pleasures, as well as crafts: putting them together can be a unique experience.
