Patterns and Templates
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? Today we propose to you to make String Art Christmas cards with the shape of a christmas tree, an angel or a snowflake. For some of them, we give you the link to visit the tutorial. 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. You can see the full tutorial step by step here: Hello, Wonderful. Simple and funny to make with kids, but be careful with the needle!
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.
We hope you enjoyed these String Art Christmas Cards. If you decide to make one, please, send us photos to our Twitter or Facebook. Rembeber: @stringartdiy on Twitter and String Art DIY on Facebook. See you soon and happy holidays!
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!
Hi, guys! How are you doing? Today we want to bring some magic to this blog and we are show you how to make an unicorn String Art step by step with this wonderful tutorial made by Jorge de la tierra.
Isn’t it lovely? We miss just one thing. It would be even more lovely if you write the quote “I don’t believe in humans”. This sentence will make the String Art more funny and clever.
MATERIALS YOU NEED
- Wood Board
- Round Headed Nails
- White, yellow, purple, blue and pink strings.
We haven’t found exactly the same pattern as Jorge de la Tierra uses in this video. But we have searched for a similar one and we offer you this one by Tatiane Xavier. We have fllipped it like a mirror to try to be more similar. Obviously, you can download this unicorn free pattern for free. Print it and use like a patter.
As you can see in the step by step, the process is just the same as always. First of all, you have to paint the wooden board in black or in a dark colour. This way, the unicorn shape will shine out and the colours of his hair will stand out.
Then, you have to hold the pattern and hammer the nails following the unicorn shape and the most important lines, like his mouht, eyes, strips and hair waves.
After that, you have to start filling with white threads the unicorn head. The following step is to fill the air and the corn using yellow, purple, blue and pink strings. The last step is to make the blue eye.
We hope that you have enjoyed this post with the template and instructions to make an unicorn String Art. If so, please, share it on your social networks. See you soon!
Yeees, we are in summer we live next to the ocean (but we are not on holiday, sniff). Whatever, we enjoy very much going to the beach, having walks and see and smell the salty air. As usual, we see many boats and they inspire us to create new projects and write new posts like this one. Today we are going to show us a special selection of Boat String Art DIY projects to decorate a coastal home, a nursery, a beach restaurant or café.
FREE STRING ART BOAT PATTERN
The first thing is to get a free printable pattern to make a Boat String Art like this one. You can download it free, as usual, and we think that this will be very useful for you.
BOAT STRING ART PROJECTS
This vintage Boat String Art is just perfect and was made by HammerAndTwine using the previously pattern or template. As you can see, it’s a good choice the wooden board and the white threads. Lovely!
Monique Hansen has created this Boat String Art also using the template provided but she has decided to use a black wooden board and thre colourful threads: yellow, pink and mint. Very nice choice.
Obviously, you can use also another pattern or template to create different Boat String Art like this one made by La Hilería. In our opinion, it’s also a wise choice to paint the board in navy blue, so this blue remember to the sea and, the boat sails tend to be white, so the white threads are just perfect.
Here you have another Boat String Art design, more traditional because of the colors used by VeesVintage. Indeed, it’s a vintage one! Pay attention to the seagulls because they look nice on this project.
UrbanHoot has impressed us with this lovely Boat String Art design, suitable for a nursery wall decoration, don’t you think so?
Have you enjoyed this post? If so, please, share it and comment your impressions. Thanks!
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
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.
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
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.
@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!
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
To make this wonderful Flamingo String Art you will need these materials on the image above:
- Wooden board
- Flamingo template
- Tracing paper or scissors
- White, black and flamingo pink thread
As you will need a flamingo template, you can download this one for free.
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.
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!
