String art cross on a wooden plaque

String Art Fun Cross 1 Pattern

String Art Fun customer Angela has sent us some photographs of string art cross her 10 year old son made using the String Art Fun Value Pack No. 3: Religious Patterns.

The picture above is of Cross 1. The baseboard is a wood plaque they purchased from USA craft store Hobby Lobby. It resembles a slice cut through a log with the bark in place. The string art cross is going to be a Christmas present for Angela’s father and I am sure he will treasure it.

The pictures below are of Cross 2 and Girl praying. Angela described the process for us; “He nails the pattern, puts a claw hangar on the back, spray paints everything, and then strings the project when it is dried. The blue cross he used a variegated blue thread and did a layered painting job of white and light blue paint.”

Using string art to teach maths in a fun way

An article on the String Art Fun website describes a way of using string art as a fun way to teach math to second or the third grade pupils. The children are given a sheet of multiplication sums to solve. Once they have the answers they can use them to create a geometric design. The design can be either drawn on a supplied template, stitched on card using thread and an embroidery needle or created on a board with nails and string.

For more details and a sample work sheet visit the Notes for teachers section of the String Art Fun website.
