Kids Craft: DIY String Art Supplies:
When you are finished inserting the nails, it will look like the picture below. If you have younger children, please do the nailing for them and allow them to work on the string in just a minute. NOTE: We decided not to add nails to the inside of the tires on this image. My son did all of this nailing himself and was so proud. Yes, there are some that look crooked. In the final product it really does not matter so just go with it. Kids crafts are full of imperfections so resist your urge to correct.
You can now rip away the paper from the board. You are left with a sea of nails and the kids are ready to wrap some string.
Young and old alike will love adding string around the nails. In and out, around, zig zag, any combination they can come up with! Start on any nail and knot your string. Then work it around until you are happy and knot it off on your last nail as well. Make sure to keep the string taught in order to get the proper results.
Be sure to add string around the edge as well as in the center. See the tire above and below and what a difference this makes. Your budding artist can use as much or as little string as they would like. The tractor got a healthy dose of baker’s twine.
The initial my daughter completely got a little less string but the results are amazing just the same.
Each finished product is a reflection of the child and their personality. This is one kids craft that you don’t have to hide in the closet. These look great displayed in their rooms.
