String art cross on a wooden plaque

String Art Fun Cross 1 Pattern

String Art Fun customer Angela has sent us some photographs of string art cross her 10 year old son made using the String Art Fun Value Pack No. 3: Religious Patterns.

The picture above is of Cross 1. The baseboard is a wood plaque they purchased from USA craft store Hobby Lobby. It resembles a slice cut through a log with the bark in place. The string art cross is going to be a Christmas present for Angela’s father and I am sure he will treasure it.

The pictures below are of Cross 2 and Girl praying. Angela described the process for us; “He nails the pattern, puts a claw hangar on the back, spray paints everything, and then strings the project when it is dried. The blue cross he used a variegated blue thread and did a layered painting job of white and light blue paint.”
