String art can be used to create a lot of different types of art. Names, both lettered and cursive, shapes, animals, pictures, can all be made into string art. There are many ways to express creativity with this type of art by the colors and the medium it is placed on. Some layer more than one color, giving it more depth.
The process is fairly simple. The outline of the design is placed on the background and then small tacks or nails are placed at intervals along the pattern. Many different patterns can be used in the way the string is wrapped around the nails, so that each piece can look very different.
Here are 8 beautiful examples of different ways to create string art.
