String art map of UK, Inspired by a project from English Ginger.
String art of UK. Inspired by project from English Ginger.


  • Step 1

    Firstly I decided on my design. I then drew an outline of the map for guidance. painted it all and left to dry.

  • Step 2

    Next, I fixed a peice of wood into the back of the canvas frame to support the nails. this bit is a little difficult. I cut a peice of wood to size, used polyfiller around the edges and underneath as the glue, and hammered afew nails in at angles to keep it in place.

  • Step 3

    I then went round the edge of the coast line hammering nails in at about 1cm intervals, and a centre cirle of nails.

  • Step 4

    After having decided on the colours for the thread, I used embroidary thread, i weaved it between the nails and the centre circle of nails, back and forth. and tied them off on one of the bottom nails as neatly as possible.
