Put a String on It: Inspirational String Art

Put a String on It: Inspirational String Art

If you like the idea of yarn bombing in public spaces, then you'll love its small scale cousin for the home: string art. It works at all sizes and can really be made by anyone with a hammer, nails and a spool of thread. It can be made for a specific design, or you can just go with the flow for a more graphic and organic piece. Check out some of amazing string art inspiration, including a few DIY instructions, after the jump:
