Turn any shape into geometric string art for your home. This is a super simple craft that anyone can make. You can even get older kids involved in making their own fun string art projects.
- Wood plaques
- Printed shape of your choice
- Tracing paper
- Paint or stain
Start by painting or staining the wood plaque of your choice. Pick colors that will go with your home decor. It may take more than one coat to get the coverage and color you desire.
Next trace or sketch your shape onto the plaque with a pencil. Start adding nails around the edges of your shape. Hammer to where the nails are all sticking up about the same amount. Map out your nail placement before you start adding the nails. You want the placement to be approximately equal all the way around the shape.
Knot the string onto the first nail. I am using just plain white string but you can great creative with baker’s twine, yarn, and more.
Start winding your string around your shape and across the shape in a geometric like pattern. You can start over as many times as it takes. Just keep playing with it until you love your little creation. Knot off the end on the last nail to complete your project.
Hang your geometric string art in any room of your home. What shape will you add to a wood plaque?
