We Bet You’ve Never Seen String Art Like This Before

In the early days of Pinterest, DIY string art projects were all the rage. And if you majored in creative arts, you may have experimented with the medium from time to time. When done well, the thread or yarn used takes on its own personality, upgrading the design depicted. When done poorly, you have nothing but a jumble of yarn and some very sore hands (thanks to those pushpins and tedious wrapping). That’s probably why it’s not always the most popular medium, but every now and then we see examples that remind us just how freaking awesome string art can be. Enjoy these picks to inspire your next project.
