String art has such a wonderful dimension to it and creates a fun texture mixed in with other artwork. Traditionally, we’ve seen it created with wood and nails. Using some recycled materials and crafting supplies we had on hand, we created this simple craft.


Cardboard String Art - Materials:

  • String or Yarn
  • Sturdy Cardboard
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Brads
  • Cardstock and glue (optional)


 

Instructions:

We liked the bright pop of color against a white background so we glued white cardstock to the cardboard. This step is optional. If you prefer the natural cardboard as background skip this step.

Step 1: Use hole punch to create holes along edges of sturdy cardboard. 


Step 2: Tie end of string or yarn just below the top of the brad.


Step 3: Place brad through hole and secure in back of cardboard. Repeat with multiple colors.

Step 4: Fill remaining holes with brads and secure to back of cardboard.


Step 5: Using string anchored to brad, wrap string around additional brads to create one of a kind artwork! We finished each color by wrapping around brad, tying and cutting off remaining string.


To hang on the wall, attach a string to brads on each end of the artwork. My kids adored making this colorful (very low mess) craft!
