10 string art projects for kids

String art is usually made on pieces of wood, but you can also make string art with embroidery hoops, cardboard and even recycled milk bottles!

Some of these projects use embroidery floss, but you could also use wool/yarn to make the colours stand out better.  You can choose to weave single threads between the nails, or go over them multiple times, depending on how you want it to look.
