This DIY thread drawing makes for an interesting work of art. You can make this simple or more intricate. It can be personal, for example, it could be a simple outline of a loved one’s profile. The same idea can be used but with more detail. The choice is yours. Thanks to Running with Scissors for the neat idea.
For a few more details of the family tree thread drawing if you’re interested:Here’s the frame I got at the thrift store. It’s solid wood and heavy, so I thought better for it to sit than to hang anywhere.So I cleaned up the frame, and cut scraps of linen fabric the size of the opening.I starched it to be a little stiffer, then got ready to sew/draw.
I wanted my family tree to be more fantasy like than a normal tree. I had looked at this painting but I thought it might look a little too– scrapbooky is what I’d call it. I had noticed really cool curved tree branches when I recently watched Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, and really like them.
So I thought I’d combine my ideas.
