We have used colourful drawing pins (thumb tacks) together with sparkly silver wool to give a festive look to the picture.
When using drawing pins, several layers of strong cardboard are sufficient for the backing. The design is printed on coloured card and mounted on the backing to be used as a guide as well as becoming part of the decoration.
This product is a PDF file for you to download and print. For information about how string art pictures are made using nails, wood, and string or wool, look at our string art tutorial.
The designs come with a numbered diagram, a nailing pattern, and step-by-step instructions for creating a string art picture.
The pattern size is approximately 300 mm x 210 mm (12 x 8.5 inches).
