There is a variety of string art patterns to choose from. If you’re going to use metal dies like I did, there are fewer choices. However, the dies make string art on cards super easy to do. The process video demonstrates some techniques and there’s also a supply list below.

Before You Start Your String Art

Different Techniques of String Art

“The clock”
You can use the “clock” technique here where I used a circle die for the holes. Then I started at 12 o’clock, then went to 6 o’clock, then 11 o’clock to 5 o’clock and so on and so forth.

“The abstract”
For this technique, you would string the floss any which way you want. I would recommend make sure every hole has string looped and to keep the overlaps as even as possible.

“The vortex”
This technique works better on a square or rectangle. You start on the top loop on one side, then string that to the top loop on another side. It’s easy to do but hard to explain. Watch the video 🙂

Rainbow string art card
For this card I used this die to cut out a rectangle of holes, then I cut out a heart of holes in the center. I divided the card into eighths with a pencil, and then used a separate color of floss for each section to make a rainbow.
