String art is all the rage but it definitely can be time consuming with all of the cutting wood and nailing involved. It’s also not the most kid friendly craft since it involves tools suitable for adults. If you want to make a string art craft that is kid-friendly, try making a string art canvas without nails!
How do you make a string art canvas? First, you will need to apply vinyl letters on your canvas. Then, brush Mod Podge over the entire are. Next, sprinkle on your cut string. Finally, cut around the vinyl letters with a craft knife. This is an easy string art canvas craft that anyone can do!
How To Make String Art Canvas
I love how many string art ideas can be found on Pinterest these days. I decided to try my own spin on it and used a little Mod Podge and thread to make a super easy DIY string quote canvas! You can customize it to say anything, but probably the more simple the better. I made this one and hung it in my daughter’s room for some cheerful and unique DIY art!
Here’s what you will need:
- Mod Podge (I used Matte)
- Foam Brush
- Craft Knife
- Vinyl Letters
Instructions For Making A String Art Canvas
Step One: The first thing you need to do is to place your vinyl letters onto the canvas.
and make sure they are nice and straight, or totally crooked, whatever you want!
Step Three:Then, working in sections, brush on a layer of Mod Podge and sprinkle on the thread.
Step Five: Brush on one more layer of Mod Podge to seal everything and then let it fully dry before moving on to the next step.
I allowed mine to dry overnight.
Step Six: Now take your craft knife and cut around each letter carefully.
And you are finished! Isn’t it adorable? Have you attempted any string art?
