String artwork is everywhere. I can’t scroll Pinterest, read a blog or flip through a decor magazine without seeing another great project using string. It is amazing how a little bit of thread, twine or ribbon can turn into an interesting geometric pattern, silhouette or typography. Here are a few of my fav projects:
Recently, I picked up a copy of the magazine FreshStyle, a special publication that features drool-worthy interiors and DIY projects that will knock your socks off – I’ve been pouring over the pages since I bought it last weekend! Among the inspiring DIYs featured, I fell in love with the “choose happiness” string art shown above. It’s so sweet and looks quite simple compared to other DIY string projects. And just when I thought the magazine couldn’t get any better, I realized some of my favorite DIY bloggers, such as Mandi from Vintage Revivals, are featured in the publication. My favorite Mandi project is the Love/Heart string art shown below. Here is a link to her complete tutorial.
Now you know how much I LOVE anything Jonathan Adler. Well in one of his most recent books, 100 Ways to a Happy Chic Life, is this fun geometric crown made from string. And if I haven’t already convinced you to buy the book in my review post here, the full tutorial, including a template, for this fabulous project can be found in the book.
The last string art project I would like to feature is by Oh Happy Day. These name cards are so unique and fun. I will definitely consider making them for my next dinner party! Click here for a full tutorial.

If you haven’t had your fill of string art yet, I recommend popping over to Pinterest and doing a keyword search for even more eye candy! You certainly will come away inspired.
