Transform primitive pretties into string art stunners

We found this sweet “Love Brings You Home” owl themed decor at a local TJ Maxx store. The creation, from Primitives By Kathy, featured a string art heart with muted pale pink floss. We knew instantly it was the perfect candidate for a Kreinik thread makeover. Hearts are wild, hearts are alive, hearts are vibrant and chaotic and beautiful. Layering a glow in the dark and a metallic thread will bring this one to artistic, textile life. Here’s how:

Materials used:

  1. Purchase a string art design from a craft store, home goods store, or antique store
  2. With the scissors, remove the plain yarn currently wrapped around the nails that are in place on the design.
  3. Start wrapping with the glow-in-the-dark Watermelon pink color first. Tie one end around a nail, then start “stringing” it, wrapping it around the other nails at diagonals, or as desired. When finished with that thread, tie the end in a knot around a nail. With your finger, push the thread down the shaft of the nail slightly to give you room for the next thread.
  4. Use the other thread, the metallic Fuchsia Braid in the same manner, on top of the glow-in-the-dark pink thread.
