Canvas DIY : String Art


Hello beautiful you!! When festivals are few weeks ahead every home gets a complete cleanup, so did my. From small makeovers like wall paint touch ups, replacing old electrical items and house decluttering to creating a Art Wall with best arts by me and my sister-in-law.

After collecting the best ones I need to add two more arts frames to make the art wall complete. So I decided to create different DIY arts and both on canvas board. 

The second one is DIY Canvas & Paper Art and here is the first! 

Canvas DIY  String Art

The String Art is normally done on wooden board. But to give a twist this craft (as I always like to do) I did it on a canvas board :D Frankly it was little difficult to make string art on canvas board but I loved how it turned out.

Here is what I used :
  1. Canvas board (mine is 10" by 12"). Although wooden board is (more) preferable.
  2. Any type of string (I'm using yarn)
  3. Nails 
  4. Hammer
  5. Word stencil (Just trace your desired word on paper and cut out each alphabet separately)

To give a framed look I first painted boarders of canvas with black color. Then following the inner line of the painted border nails were hammered. Distance between two nails is nearly 2 centimeters. You can decide the distance as per your wish.

Place the word stencil on as desired and hammered more nails on its border. This how it looked.

Once all nails are on the place, tie a knot of yarn to one corner nail. I started with top-left corner nail.

Now start passing the yarn from different nails to make pattern. I created a diagonal pattern as you can see here in the image. You can really do anyway you want. There are no rules to do it.

When you reach the final nail tie a strong knot and cut off the extra string.And voila the beautiful Canvas String Art Frame is ready to go on wall!
