In the first String Art we have already seen the idea that the “O” of “MOM” is a heart. Here this fact is still more visible since there are three wooden boards and the middle one is a Strin Art red heart. We love the design and you can buy it at Wantitall or DIY.

Mountain String Arts are an ideal choice for decorating your living room with the taste of nature and traditional artwork. There are several ways to draw a mountain with threads: one is more realistic, with complex shapes and shadows and another simpler, with geometric shapes that give it the appearance of abstract mountains.
Here are two mountain templates, one realistic and the other geometric. Afterwards, we will see a step-by-step tutorial to learn how to make a realistic mountain String Art, as it is more complicated. Finally, we show you 10 String Arts mountain designs, some of them realistic and others abstract, so that you can be inspired by their designs and make your own DIY.
MOUNTAIN STRING ART PATTERN
As mentioned above, the first thing to do is to download and print the Mountain String Art template of your choice. Here are two examples. They’re easy to draw, so if you don’t have a printer, you can take them as a reference and draw their shapes on top of the piece of wood or canvas.
TUTORIAL STEP BY STEP
Since making a realistic Mountain String Art is more complicated, here’s a step-by-step tutorial by HANDMADE STUDIO Golden Sun so you can easily follow the process. As you can see, he draws the mountain directly with a pencil on top of the wood, but you can put the paper and nail the nails on top. The most difficult part is to make the shadows with threads, they don’t have to be black, they can also be white, so stay tuned.
MOUNTAIN STRING ART DESIGNS
Now that you know how to draw mountains and how to make String Art, it’s time to show you different Mountain String Art designs so you can decide which style you like best. Let’s take a look:
This white mountain String Art design on grey wood with red and orange trees is simply beautiful.
Via Distant Realms
The mountains in white thread on a background of dark wood look very good, as you can see. They look like snowy mountains.
In this other mountain String Art we see again the design in white thread on a dark wood background, but with the novelty that it also adds a white tree and a bear in the foreground.
And still another design similar to the previous ones, but with different size and a lighter wood color.
We changed the design for one where the mountains appear flatter and more colorful, as if it were a drawing made by children. We love the colors, as well as the road and trees in the foreground.
We entered fully into a more geometric and abstract style of drawing mountains Strin Art, with triangles only. Notice also how they has pulled the String Art threads, straight and vertical, which adds a curious height effect to the mountains.
In this design they have also drawn mountains with triangles and with depth effect. What stands out is that they have added a nice painted lettering that says “Adventure Awaits”
We love this mountain string Art especially for the colors that it has chosen, different to the previous ones, in orange and brown tones, that give it an air of autumn. Notice also that they have added the reflection of the mountains below and it seems that there is a lake.
These geometric mountains in blue tones are also precious and also have their reflection in the lower part. The sun in warm tones are a good counterpoint to the composition.
We finished with this beautiful and colorful design in which they have decided that the mountains are fuchsia, pink and white to give a more vivid effect. The chairlift on top is funny.
We hope that you liked these mountain String art Templates, the step-by-step tutorial and the 10 designs and that them has inspired you to create your own mountain string art DIY right now. Come on!

It is no longer a lonely spot in the house only reserved for the person who cooks, but it is a space of coexistence and that is why we have to pay maximum attention to all aspects, and that includes decoration.
It is also a place where a lot of waste is produced and, to properly manage this waste and in order to take care of the environment, we have to take into account the waste sorting and to have low profile garbage disposals installed for organic waste, thus reduce the carbon footprint since we are reducing CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles such as garbage truck, according to Garbage Disposal Mag.

As we have just said, enjoy your meal! is one of the most used expressions before eating, so this String Art with cutlery and the word “Enjoy” composed with a nice lettering is a good kitchen decorating idea.
Cutlery is very present in the kitchen, so making a fork, spoon or knife String Art with is a good option, even better if the String Art is created on a slice of wood, perfect for decorating a rustic kitchen.
Do you feel like Homer Simpson and what you like most in the kitchen is that there are cold beers? So this is your ultimate String Art where the threads and the bottle caps are combined.
“Sherry, Niles?” We are sure that this Frasier quote sounds familiar to you. The kitchen is a nice place to enjoy a good wine before dinner or while cooking, so this String Art made with corks and threads it’s just excellent.

The late French origami master, Eric Joisel, created a truly unforgettable piece with ‘Jazz Band’.
This one of the most mesmerizing, unusual things made of paper and is testament to the artist’s ability to craft masterpieces from simple paper.
This spectacular work of art includes multiple distinct characters, each playing their own musical instrument: you’ll see a drum, a violin, a flute, a clarinet, cymbals and more. It’s amazing just how much movement and dynamism Joisel managed to achieve through origami: the band really do appear to be playing together in perfect harmony.
Jazz Band is just one of thousands of origami pieces Joisel produced during his career, but it’s regarded as one of his most powerful creations.
Bringing Paper Alive
Joisel incorporated a variety of colours in Jazz Band, adding a stronger visual impact while helping to diversify the musicians themselves. Each of the musicians is a dwarf, clad in a long, pointed hat and a robe. The different heights, outfits and hats of each character ensures each stands out and conveys his own personality.
Like many great pieces of art before and after, Jazz Band manages to create the illusion of an entire world existing around it.
The longer you stare at the musicians playing, the more you can imagine the crowds they’re playing too, the type of classic jazz notes they would produce and the energy they would display. That’s a stunning achievement to make with folded paper.
Jazz Band took Joisel more than 100 hours to complete. This is no surprise, given the sheer complexity and attention to detail. Look closer at the hands, at the placement of fingers, at the characters’ posture: everything within Jazz Band is remarkably lifelike.
If you didn’t know Joisel had used origami to produce this piece, you simply might not imagine paper had been used.
He was never able to repeat any of these models. As a result, Jazz Band’s colourful cast of characters is unique.
An Artist Like No Other
This keen eye for movement and distinguishing characteristics is prevalent throughout Eric Joisel’s other origami pieces. One of his most well-known creations is the Hedgehog: just looking at this can only inspire awe at Joisel’s abilities. As with Jazz Band, the Hedgehog is so intricate and so delicate you may completely forget it’s crafted from paper.
Other pieces made by Joisel include ‘Mask’, which shows a true grasp of character and movement. Mask is almost unsettling in its elegance and seamlessness, and Gandalf. The latter is based on the iconic character from The Lord of the Rings and has much in common with his Jazz Band.
Jazz Band’s dwarves have similar pointed hats, posture and clothing as Gandalf. They also appear to inhabit a Fantasy world too, hinting at a much grander work of art surrounding them.
Jazz Band is not just one of Joisel’s finest achievements, but one of the most striking examples of how powerful this majestic ancient practice can be in the hands of a master. It’s no stretch to call Jazz Band by Eric Joisel is as a marvel of origami, which is why it features in the most wonderful things made of paper ranking by Gigaranking — there’s no doubt Jazz Band deserves its place.
Joisel passed away in 2010, leaving a fascinating body of work that will go on to inspire other artists longing to craft origami. Jazz Band serves as a pioneering masterpiece demonstrating Joisel’s gift at its finest.

FAMILY AND PHOTOS STRING ART
There are many ways to customize a Family String Art. One of them is to hang strings and small clothespins and hang photos of the couple or the family on it to make it unique and special. Look at the different colors (white, mint, red…), fonts and sentences that can be added, such as “live, love and laugh” or “with life begins … and love never ends”. Let’s see some examples that are really nice and cute.

FAMILY AND BIRDS STRING ART
Another way for represent the family is through the figure of birds on a branch, which is a beautiful metaphor of family life: they are all together on the same branch or home. We encourage you to make String Arts with colorful birds, because we think it can look very nice. Connect the line of the writing with the one of the cable or branch where the birds rest is a very original design, as you can see on the third picture.
FAMILY TREE STRING ART
We finish this selection with another beautiful way of representing the family: with a family tree. Pay attention that the design of the tree can be in different ways, from a realistic tree, to one that is only a silhouette and inside are the real names of the family tree or you can make the trunk with string Art and paint the leaves and letters. You choose!

Hi, guys! How are you? In our previuos posts, Mandala String Art, step by step, we have already seen how to make a Mandala String Art on a video tutorial. Today we are going to show us more impressive mandala String Art designs that can inspire you to create new shapes and crafts.
First of all, we want to talk a little about the mandalas. In case you do not know, the mandalas are spiritual symbolic representations of the macrocosm and the microcosm, used in Buddhism and Hinduism. They are usually circular shapes that have a center from which perfect geometric shapes emerge.
These pieces can be great to decorate a teashop, a religious articles store or a meditation room, due to the fact that mandalas help to relax and meditate, as we can see in the previous image. Then, we will see some stunning designs because of their shapes and the color of their threads.
We start with this wonderful and complex mandala in orange and yellow tones. We can appreciate many geometric shapes within the circle. You can buy it on Etsy.
This other mandala String Art has no circular shape, although it seems. Actually it is a geometric shape with 22 points or vertexes. We really love the mix of colours used.
Notice that a mandala String Art can be ever better if we make it on a round wooden base. This is made by Crafty Starling with cherry wood and is amazing.
For this, byHANDstringart has used a thicker type of yarn or thread. This is mandala String Art easier to make, their shapes and figures are simpler, but still looks great.
We really like this gradient color from blue to green for a String Arty mandala. Absolutely gorgeous, made by the hand of RaesCraftyCreations.
You can also make Mandala String Art with some blank spaces inside, like this design with rainbow colours threads created by @entrehilosuy.
This mandala String Art, also forming a 22 vertex polygon is great because of the striking colors he has used. The shape departs from the central yellow point and comes out with several radius and a gradient is made at the same time. This work is by Mandalas Olho de Deus.
This mandala String Art is special because it is made with blue threads that glow in the dark. In addition, its figures are wonderful and seems like a lotus. A work made by MagicLineStore.
Form concentric circles in the middle that look like an eye is a good start for a mandala String Art, as we can see in this piece made by ESTREDAYENU.
This design is similar to the previous one, follows the idea of concentric circles and is something appreciated in a mandala.
The swirl is not a very common figure in the mandalas, but, nevertheless, it has a central point and is circular, so it can enter this category.
We hope you have enjoyed these mandala String Art designs and we hope that now you are feeling like making a DIY mandala String Art like one of them to decorate your room and that it helps you to concentrate and meditate.
