I Love You: Valentine String Art

String art is nothing new. And as with many handmade items, it seems to be enjoying a resurgence. Check out these awesome examples I found!

Family Fun Magazine recently featured some fun string art projects for kids. (Here is the link to the online article.) Peachy and I decided it would be a fun project for her to take on, but even better a project she could do with her dad.

They came up with the design together and after dad did the nails (I am sure an older child could handle this on their own,) Peachy started stringing.
It took a little while as she would need breaks here and there. And actually the U was completed months after the project began.
They tried to use supplies that we had on hand, but in the end they bought some nails with bigger heads to keep the string from slipping.
There are lots of great ideas out there for some fun string art projects. And I would say it is fun for all ages.


  1. This is awesome! Matt has been doing string art with his art classes lately, and my oldest two have been begging to try. Perhaps we will.

    1. I really do think it can be fun for almost all ages!

  2. Super cute! You are so good about crafts with your kids - it's on my things to improve on list!

    1. Crafting with my kids come easily, simply because I love it so far they do as well. We also have lots of supplies around the house, so I don't have to go out and buy the necessary items for each project, which is very helpful.
