“Drawing” With Thread To Create A Beautiful Art Piece DIY

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.
