If you’re new to the wonderful world of string art, then we’ve the perfect project to get you started! This simple yet beautiful string art feather created by Kelly-Ann Jordan is a gorgeous way to add a piece of eye-catching craft to your home decor. String art is created by weaving coloured string, wool, wire, or threads between hammered nails to make geometric patterns. This is a fun project that can be done by adults and kids, in any shape and colour you want! Here, Kelly-Ann takes you step-by-step through creating a lovely feather design – and has even included a printable PDF template so you can recreate it at home, with ease!
Time it Takes to Make: 1 hour
Skill Level: Beginner
You Will Need:
Print out the pattern and position the design on a wooden block, then tape it securely in place.
Using the pattern as a guide, hammer nails around the outline of the feather shape. Remove the paper when you’re finished.
Start by tying a knot around the top nail to secure one end of the string to the board. Moving from nail to nail, wrap the string from the centre line of nails to the outer line of nails, to achieve the feather design.
When you wish to change colour threads, cut and tie the string at the nail you’re on, then start with a new colour. You can experiment with matching or contrasting string colours as you go.
Tie a knot at the last nail you land on, and your project is finished!
