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.

 

WELCOME SIGNS

Bakery Welcome Signs String Art

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

Bakery 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

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

Coffee 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

Nice String Art

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.

So let’s go!

Ooh, Game of Thrones Season 7 is over! We heard through the grapevine that maybe we have to wait 2 years until the season 8 comes, so… hard times are coming! To cheer ourselves up, maybe we can make some Game of Thrones String Art to be surrounded of its emblems and symbols, so let’s pick up some ideas.

 

HOUSE STARK STRING ART

Game of Thrones String Art, house Stark 1

This House Stark Wolf String Art is just perfect. Made by Christine Alice, she has chosen the white strings for the direwolf shape and a black chalkboard as background. She has added also the popular quote “Winter is coming” painted with white chalk.

 

Game of Thrones String Art, house Stark 2

This House Stark emblem String Art made by RealArtCraft is really awesome and it has a lot of details thanks to the fact of adding some black treads to draw the face and the fur of the direwolf.

 

Game of Thrones String Art, House Stark 3

GeneticPotentialArt has created a very nice String Art by joining the Stark direwolf with the Weirwood , the white tree with red leaves where Bran Stark has their visions in Winterfell. In addition, we could see also the “House Stark’s ancestral sword, Ice.

 

HOUSE TARGARYEN STRING ART

Game of Thrones String Art, house Targaryen 2

Maybe you prefer the House Targaryen and its dragons! If so, here you have this wonderful Targaryen House Emblem String Art with a red dragon made by Steller Made Creations. Impressive!

Game of Thrones String Art, house Targaryen

In case you don’t know it, “Fire and Blood” is the tenth and final episode of the first season of Game of Thrones when the dragons are born, but also the name of unpublished book where George R. R. Martin where explains the complete history of House Targaryen. In this Strin Art made by BasementArtDesign we can see these two words and the dragon emblem of this house.

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 PROJECTSBoat String Art

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!

 

Boat String Art DIYMonique 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. Boat String Art 2

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.

 

Boat String Art 3

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.

 

Boat String Art Nursery

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 template 2 Frida Kahlo template

 

FRIDA KAHLO STRING ART: DISTINCTIVE TRAITS

 

Frida Kahlo String Art

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.

Frida Kahlo String Art 3

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

 

Frida Kahlo String Art 2

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.

Frida Kahlo String Art 4

@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!

MATERIALS YOU NEED

Flamingo String Art 1

To make this wonderful Flamingo String Art you will need these materials on the image above:

  • Wooden board
  • Flamingo template
  • Tracing paper or scissors

  • Nails
  • White, black and flamingo pink thread

FLAMINGO TEMPLATE

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.
Flamingo String Art 2

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!

First of all, here you have the bow tie template. Free download, as usual!

Once you have printed the template, maybe you already know that you have to put it on a board (wood or cardboard) and pin nails following the shape. Remove the paper template and the next step is to tie the threads over the pins and make this kind of net.

Let’s take a look to these designs!

Bow tie String Art for men

This one i’ts a cute bowtie String Art made by HeartlandHomes. It’s a good idea to use a black wooden board and white string. It’s nice also to paint the initials of the name using acrylic paint. Try to use a fancy and elegant calligraphy.

This bowtie String Art made by OneRoots has a vintage style (because of the natural wood colour and the yellow string) and it’s perfect for the modern gentlemen. We could image this String Art as a shop or barbershop wall decoration. Very nice one!

Bow tie String Art for babies

Maybe if you want to give a bowtie String Art as a present for a nebowrn child it’s better to make it on a pale wooden board and use baby blue colour strings or threads. Pay attention to the “little gentleman” painted on thew because it’s very cute! This piece was made by Naileditartbydian. It’s no longer avaliable on her Etsy Shop but maybe you can make it youself or ask her to make another customized one.

Top hat, moustache and bowtie String Art DIY

Finally, we have this amazing composition made by beat-it2. As you can see it’s a top hat, moustache and bowtie String Art and it’s great as a handmade gift to a father, boyfriend or brother, specially if they love this style and they consider themselves as a gentelmen.
