How the pictures are made

The designs come with a numbered diagram, a nailing pattern, and step-by-step instructions for creating a string art picture. The patterns are delivered by downloading to your computer in PDF format. Download one of our free patterns to discover what they include.


For information about how string art pictures are made using nails, wood, and string or wool, have a look at our string art tutorial. The demonstration uses the free String Art Fun Circle 1 pattern. It takes you through the picture making process step by step. The circle designs are a good starting point for beginners, as the strings follow a logical progression.

Download delivery

The product is a licence to print the pattern instructions for your personal use. The licence includes a 12-month download period and permission for the personal use of the pattern instructions for life.

In order to continue to use the pattern instructions beyond the 12-month download period, you need to either save a copy of the PDF file to your computer or print enough copies to keep you going. If you want to download the file after 12 months, a new licence will be required.

Using card instead of wood

Although the String Art Fun patterns only give instructions for using nails in wood, the designs can be stitched on to card with embroidery floss. There is a tutorial that explains how the stringing sequence can be modified to make full size pictures on card.

There are some straight line art exercises in the tutorials section that only require paper and pencils. This is a great way to introduce string art principles to children.
