String Art Ideas
Ideas to make your own String Art craft.
Hi, guys! How are your String Arts doing? As you maybe already know, in our previous post Marvelous Louisiana Themed String Arts we saw Louisiana state String Art, but today we are fancy showing you more String Art States and we have chosen 10 states from the United States of America. We are really sorry if we are not showing the state where you live in, maybe in the next posts, ask us for more! So let’s see some of them. Enjoy it!
TEXAS STRING ART
We start with the Texas String Art. As you can see, it looks great with white threads on a dark wood background and a heart shape in the middle or poiting at your city or home town. You can buy it in Etsy or DIY because it’s very easy.
SOUTH CAROLINA STRING ART
Here you have a South Carolina String Art made with threads of a deep blue color on light wood. It also has a blank with the shape of a heart in the middle. You can learn how to do it step by step at Snap Guide.
WISCONSIN STRING ART
As you can see in this image, this Wisconsin map String Art created with yellow threads on a deep green wooden background is also very creative and beautiful. You can see the steps to learn how to make this Winsconsing String Art at Crafts by Amanda.
MASSACHUSETTS STRING ART
The shape of the state of Massachusets is a bit strange but it also looks good with white threads on dark wood background and a heart where Boston is located. You can do it yourself or but it at Etsy shop.
CALIFORNIA STRING ART
What we like the most about this String Art with the shape of California’s map is the blue oval wood background that reminds the entire ocean that has this state in front of its coasts. You can learn how to make this California String Art at Snapguide step by step.
FLORIDA STRING ART
Florida String Art it’s very wonderful. Even more if you design it using yellow or orange threads because reminds the colour of the sun, this golden piece that all of we are searchin for at Florida. We don’t know the source. If you do, please, write us.
NEW YORK STRING ART
Here we have a New York State String Art that is really lovely and elegant. Firstly, because it is made using beige threads and, secondly, because the wood is painted with a stilish retro green. Sorry, we haven’t found th source, tell us if you know it.
PENNSYLVANIA STRING ART
You can add some lettering to the piece, as we see in this String Art where the word “Home” has been added and “Pittsburgh” is marked in a special way. You can make it yourself or buy it at Etsy.
VIRGINIA STRING ART
Virginia state shape or outline it’s funny because it seems a mountain. This is a sample of how well it can be to use orange threads on a dark wood background. Like all the previous ones, it also has a heart in the middle pointing out a special city or town for the person who makes the craft. You can do it yourself or buy it in Etsy.
WASHINGTON STRING ART
We finish with this wonderful Washington Sting Art. The special thing on this piece is that the wooden background has a drawing of mountains and a moose, the typical landscape of this state. We do not know the source, we’re sorry.
We hope you enjoyed these String Art States and that you are fancy making one with the map of your state, city or your town. Soon we will see another post with two state maps designs. See you, guys!
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.
Hi, guys! How are you doing? Spring is coming, the sun is coming, so… what if we make some sunglasses String Art to decorate our home or store to add this new sunny taste to the atmosphere? If the lenses of your sunglasses are broken, you can buy a new pair of replacement lenses in this website: Sunglasses Restorer or you can use the frame (or the broken lenses) to make the following String Art workpieces. You can use the frame as template for a small piece or add them to the composition to create a new volume effect.
What is clear is that to create this String Art, the crafter has used a real sunglasses frame to create the negative effect where the sunglasses shape are blank (well, we can see the dark wooden base behind) and all around them is filled with white threads using the String Art technique. This design is very nice, simple and elegant.
In case you love your Rayban sunglasses so so much, you can add or glue them to the String Art copy to create a volume effect or just use the sunglasses as a model to copy. Notice that the crafter has used a special wood base that add a traditional and fancy look to the work, following the Rayban style.
Let’s move to the color that make us feel that the sun is above us and making us feel alive and happy. Evidently, the yellow! We really love this yellow sunglasses String Art made by The Honaker Home maker. This design is lovely for a room, a coffe shop or a clothes and accessories store decorating, don’t you think so? Pay also attention to the wooden base painted in gray (but still letting the woodgrain show through), because is the color that fits the most with the yellow.
If we are looking for funny sunglasses String Art, what is better than this sunglasses emoji String Art? You will need a round wood base to make it, that you can cut or you can buy already cut, paint it in yellow and, then, make the emoji shape. Don’t forget the smile and, obviously, the black sunglasses.
Let us allow our minds to be free and creative. If we are able to reach this point, we can produce String Art pieces as original as this one. Once you have the idea of the sunglasses String Art you can try to put them over other figures, like a person or an animal. For example, put the sunglasses on a pig face. He seems so cute, good-looking, a bit cocky but happy! That’s just an idea. We suggest you to choose a cat or a dog if you don’t like pigs, even your pet, and put on them some cool sunglasses.
As always, we hope that you have enjoyed these String Art ideas and we encourage you to go to the DIY superstore, get some wood bases, nails and threads and make some of these pieces to decorate your place. Thank you for reading and see you soon!
We can’t understand how, after so many years of bloging, we haven’t dedicated yet one post to talking about cactus Strings Art! Luckily, today we have thought about it and we have looked for the 10 best cactus String Art, so, here we have our Top 10. As we can see below, some of them are regular cactus or succulent, others are cactus with flowers and others are cactus that can be found in flowerpots or in the plains of the desert. Let’s take a look at these 10 works.
We love this String Art with three different cactus planted in three pretty pots, each one of a color. Notice that one of them has pretty flowers. You can DIY or buy it on BrittasDreamDesigns.
CACTUS AND SUCCULENTS
Pay attention also to these beautiful succulents and cactus on a dark wood base. We love their shapes and colors. This work was created by Rachel Herring.
We leave the flowerpots and we take a look at the plains of the desert to imagine a big cactus like this one. It’s a nice piece that you can buy at Etsy or, if tyou prefer Do It Yoursef, so we encourage you to watch this tutorial by Love Tempe.
Here you haver another tutorial step by step by TurquoiseBoutiqueStudio that could help too to make this cactus String Art.
CACTUS WITH CLOTH FLOWER
Sometimes it is very good when we add an object of another material in a String Art work. For example, in the next two cactus String Art, the flower is made of cloth and it looks wonderful. This one is made by BrittasDreamDesigns and the next one with the orange flower is made by Locker Pivots.
If the String Art is to decorate a nursery, it is better to make it with soft and pastel colors, like this cactus full of flowers and beautiful details. It’s no longer avaliable on Etsy but you can Do It Yourself having it as a reference.
CACTUS WITH FRINGES
If you are tired of cactus flowers, you can add something more original, like pompoms or colored fringes. You can see the full tutorial step by step visiting Perles and Co.
THREE CACTUS ON WOOD SLICE
In case you would like to add something different on the cactu String Arty, you can also change the base from normal wood piece to a slice of wood. You can buy it on hannahhandcraftedco or take it as an example and try to imitate it.
Another original way to make these String Art cactus is by drawing them in geometric shapes. It gives a much more modern look. We have found it on Pinterest.
REAL CACTUS ON STRING ART
To finish, we turn it around and we offer you a variety of a geometric String Art with real cactus planted in the wood base, as if they were flowerpots or vertical planters. Is really really original and you can found the whole tutorial step by step on Brit.co.
We wish that all these cactus String Art have pleased you and that you decorate your home walls with them. We encourage you to do it yourselves and tell us how it was. See you soon!
Hello everyone and welcome one more time to our blog. Today we are going to show you some Arabic String Arts where we will see some arabic letters, names in arabic, arabic phrases and islamic verses. Currently I am studying arabic lenguaje and arabic calligraphy and I feel that I am a lover of this culture, so I am going to try to translate each one so you know what it says. Ialla or let’s go!
Let’s start with some arabic letters String Art with beautiful calligraphy.
The first is the letter “و”, we pronunce it as “waw” if it’s isolated or “uu” if it’s in the middle or the end of a noun. It also works to join two phrases, is our “and”. At the site nailstring.com you can see more works like this one by Emine Kara.
These two letters are the initials of a couple made by A Crafty Arab for their wedding day. These “ق” (faa) and “ن” (nuun) letters. You can see the full tutorial step by step in his site.
MY MOTHER IN ARABIC
You can also choose to pay tribute to your mother with this fabulous String Art that says “أمي” (Umi), that is “my mother”. We really love this beautiful design by Jwana Al Sha’lan and you can see more pictures at his Behance Gallery.
NAME PATRICIA IN ARABIC
An excellent option is also a String Art with your name in Arabic. In this created by Monica Artwork we can read “باتريثيا”, witch means Patricia, although it is really written “Baatriiziaa” because the letter “P” and “C” do not exist in Arabic.
PATIENCE IS BEAUTIFUL IN ARABIC
Another idea is to write a beautiful sentence in Arabic, using a beautiful calligraphy, for your String Art. This one says “فصبر حميل” (“fa sabrun jameel”) and it means “patience is beautiful”. We have seen this beautiful Arabic String Art at Izza Shahid Pinterest.
Now we start with religious Arabic String Art.
“الله” Allah means God and there are many ways to write it in many different calligraphies, each one more beautiful than the other. You can buy this on Etsy
This one is stunning due to its design and the bright green thread used.
THANKS GOD IN ARABIC
In this other String Art we can read “الحمد لله” (“alhamdulillah”) is literally “Praise be to Lord”, but muslims use it as “Thank Lord”. Pay attention to his beautiful calligraphy! If you like it, it’s avaliable on Etsy.
THE MERCIFUL IN ARABIC
“الرحيم” means “The merciful” and is one of the names of Allah. As you can see in these two islamic String Art, there are many ways to write the same by using several calligprahies and ornaments. The second one it’s on sale at Etsy.
MY GOD DON’T BE FAR FROM ME IN ARABIC
We finish this article with a verse that says “يا إلهي لا تبعد عني”, meaning “My lord, don’t be far from me” and it’s calligraphy it’s impressive. It0s avaliable on Etsy.
We hope you liked these arabic String Art and see you soon!
Mardi gras is coming, so today we have thought about Louisiana and more specifically, obout New Orleans and we have decided to dedicate an article to Louisiana Themed String Arts. As you can see, there are colors and motifs that are repeated. According to colors, purple and yellow because they are the LSU team colors, as well as the purple, yellow and green because they are Mardi Gras flag colors. Regarding to the motifs, fleur de lis is repeated, emblem of New Orleans, so as the shape of the map of Louisiana and also the eye of the tiger appears, among others.
Let’s take a look to these Louisiana Themed String Arts!
LOUISIANA MAP STRING ART
We start with this Louisiana State map String Art, which has a heart in the middle wearing the colors green, yellow and purple, as well as the initials NOLA, acronym of New Orleans, Louisiana.
We also love this other version of the map of Louisiana filled with threads of the three colors (yellow, purple and green) and the heart in white. More simple but more impressive. Sorry, but we don’t know the source!
More elegant and sober is this other Louisiana Map String Art with the fleur-de-lis in the middle and wearing the New Orleans Saints team colors.
Instead of that, you also can fill the Louisiana map using the LSU team colors for the threads, makins strips!
LSU STRING ART
Now, let’s focus on LSU football team and this Tiger Eye Fleur de Lis String Art because it’s stunning! As you can see, the tiger eye is inside the fleur-de-lis shape, all using purple, yellow, white and black threads.
It is also a good option to create a String Art with LSU initials using yellow threads over a purple painted backgorund. A simple and effective design.

NEW ORLEANS SKYLINE STRING ART
In case you prefer to pay tribute to New Orleans city, then you can make a String Art with its skyline, like this one. As you can see, the design is in negative, since the threads are the sky and in the shape of the buildings.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS STRING ART
Are you a New Orleans Saints team fan? Then you will love this String Art with the fleur-de-lis on a background of golden brown and black stripes.
MARDI GRAS STRING ART
If we mix fleur-de-lis shape and yellow, purple and green colours, we have the representation of New Orleans Mardi Gras. So this String Art is wonderful to celebrate that! Sorry, but we haven’t found the source.
We hope you liked these Louisiana Themed String Arts and we encourage you to do a DIY to celebrate the greatness of this state. We hope also to see you soon here, more posts are coming!
Our favorite time of the year has arrived: Christmas is here! And it’s just the time to send Christmas cards to our beloved ones. What do you think if we make them ourselves?

If not, we provide to you the free pattern or the free template to make it easier. Let’s go!
MODERN CHRISTMAS TREE STRING ART CARD
To start with, here you have this modern Christmas tree card, very easy to make, including some beads as a decoration. If you add words like “love”, “joy” or “peace” is even more lovely.

ANGEL STRING ARTCHRISTMAS CARD
This one it’s also made by Hello, Wonderful, and the process is just the same that the modern tree. Instead of a tree, it’s an blue and white angel. Pay attention to his halo or crown made using silver and very small garlands. So cute!
SNOWFLAKE STRING ART CHRISTMAS CARD
We have found on Jaded Stephanie Pinterest this wonderful snowflake Christmas Card and we think that it deserve a try because it’s a beautiful, simple and modern design.
TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE STRING ART CARD
If you prefer a traditional christmas tree card instead, here you have another design by dominicInOhio. It’s algo very minimal and elegant. As we can’t bring you the tutorial, here you have a similar patter or template that maybe you can use:
STITCHED TREE CARD
Yes, instead of call it “String aAt card” we can call it “stitched card” because it’s a kind of embroidery work. This project it’s also very easy to make and you can follow all the process step by step by visiting The Twinery. Minimal, elegant and very festive design, indeed, including the calligraphy and the glitter part.
CHRISTMAS TREE MADE BY CIRCLES STRING ART CARD
We finish by proposing you this original way to create a Christmas tree String Art card. Its shape is made with red and golden String Art traditional 8, 16, 24, 32 or 40 points stars. Here you have the template to a 16 point star String Art, but the process is the same by multiplying the points.

Lately, I’ve noticed that the bakeries near me are beautifully decorated. They are full of colors and details that make them wonderful and, actually, it’s feels nice to be surrounded by such beauty while you are buying, having a coffee or eating a sweet piece of cake. The environment is very important in an establishment, both in the entrance sign, as in the furniture, in the counters, in the tables or in the wall decorations.
Every detail counts to make the customer feel special so today we are going to propose you some String Arts projects to decorate a bakery shop in case you own one inspired by its characteristic elements, such as welcome signs, cupcakes, coffees, and more. Of course, you can do it yourself or buy the String Art at a craft store, as you want, but it’s important that it looks like a craft to create a traditional atmosphere in the bakery shop. That will send the message that your cakes and pastries are also handmade and traditional, as the furniture or the decoration.
We can start by putting a nice String Art sign on the front door to welcome the customers. A sign that says “Bakery”, “Welcome”, “Hello”, “Aloha”, “Hola”, “We are open” or whatever you want. The important thing is to choose well the color, the lettering and the message to give a warm welcome message.
CUPCAKE STRING ART
To decorate the bakery shop walls, it is great to put String Arts bakery products, such as cupcakes or muffins. They are very easy to make and their colors are very attractive for the eyes. We are sure that customers will want to eat one of them!
DONUT STRING ART
Another bakeries star product are the donuts or doughnuts. Its attractive appearance full of colors (especially pink for the base and rainbow sprinkles for the topping) makes it perfect to decorate the walls. In addition, its round shape can be an “O” letter as in the word “Love”.
COFFEE OR TEA MUGS STRING ART
Sometimes, when we are in a bakery shop, we also feel like drinking a cup of coffee or tea, so we think that these Mug String Arts decorated with hearts can also be a good idea as wall decor.
KITCHEN STRING ART
It can also be an original idea to put on the tables small String Arts with forks, knives or spoons and messages like “enjoy” or “bon appétit”.
SOME NICE DESSIGNS
Eventually, we would also like to recommend you some String Art that have nothing to do with the bakery, but that could be nice as a wall decoration. Choose colors and elements that combine well with the theme and style of the bakery, such as animals, bicycles, rainbows, flowers, stars, geometric shapes, moustaches, beards, bows… no matter what, but has to be as cute as you can!
We hope you like these String Art ideas and that they inspire you to create your own projects to decorate your bakery shop. Thanks for reading us and see you soon!
Hello everyone! Today we bring you a new String Art that is very easy to make, perfect to make it at fall season. Since it is very simple, it’s suitable to make with children, but always with adult supervision, due to the fact that we are using nails and hammers. As you can see on the frame, it’s a fall leaft String Art. Let’s take a look to this video tutorial by regalamanualidades.
The best thing about this project is that you do not even need a leaf tree template, you can directly use a sycamore leaf, a maple leaf, a tulip tree leaf or no matter what leaf found at the woods in autumn as a template. Put it on the wooden board and put the nails around it, as you usually do with paper templates.
It would be perfect if you can buy a gradient yarn or gradient thread from orange to black or brown, as the used in the tutorial. If you cannot, then buy orange, dark orange, ocher and dark brown threads and make several layers to get the gradient effect. Pay attention to the end of the video, where we see how to tie the last thread, creating a special knot to fix the thread and be sure that it will not untie.
We hope that you liked this Sting Art and that you fell fancy going the forest to find a few dry leaves to use as a template and make projects as beautiful as this one to decorate your house in the fall season.
If you enjoyed this tutorial, please, share it with your friends so that they can also do this beautiful craft with their kids or their art students. We hope to see you soon! Until then, have a happy autumn.
Halloween is coming and now it’s the perfect time to start to make Halloween themed crafts and projects. Previously, we have posted Three Halloween animals: bat, spider and cat String Art and some Pumpking String Art, but today we are inspired by the quote “You say witch like it’s a bad thing” and we are fancy focusing on witch String Art projects. So let’s go!
WITCH OF OZ STRING ART
Our favorite project is this one by Strings by Samantha. As you can see by the shape and the colour, it’s a Wizard of Oz String Art and it’s absolutely perfect to decorate a Halloween party or to put in your home, café or shop to create this terrific and classical atmosphere.
WITCH OF OZ STRING ART TEMPLATE
To make yourself this wonderful String Art, maybe it’s a good idea to download this template for free. Print it, put it on the wooden board and hammer the nails around the silhouette. Then, cross the green Strings as you see on the image.
WITCH HAT STRING ART IN PURPLE
The second idea that we suggest is this Witch Hat String art with the belt in purple made by MavellaDesigns. This one it’s easy to make and you only need a wooden board, nails and purple, black and white strings.
WITCH HAT STRING ART TEMPLATE
If you feel like doing this Witch Hat String Art yourself, here you have this printable free template. Its shape it’s very similar to the previous String Art.
WITCH HAT STRING ART IN ORANGE
If you prefer the orange colour to suit with the pumpkins, maybe you can change the designs and put the witch hat belt in orange, like MBWoodenCreations has done in this creation. Really lovely, don’t you think so?
As always, we hope that you have loved these witch String Art and that, now, you feel like making it right now! See you soon!
