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

Texas State 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

South Carolina State 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

Wisconsin State 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

Massachusetts State 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

California State 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 State 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

New York State 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

Pennsylvania State 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 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

Washington State 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!
