These DIY art projects prove that there is beauty in simplicity. Instead of heading to the art store, take a look around at your existing craft stash. You just need some string, and very little else.

Above, Dabito from Old Brand New "drew" with fiber to create this framed abstract art above the bed.

Traditional retro string art feels more modern in this project from Sinnen Rausch. The white background and gradient tones are subtle and beautiful (and the styling doesn't hurt either).

This minimalist wall hanging has the feel of a modern dream catcher, but is oh-so-simply made with embroidery hoops and yarn by The Lovely Drawer.
