Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a really fun Halloween décor project! It’s no secret how much I love making Halloween décor and this project makes me so happy! String art is all the rage and I wanted to make a spider web. Not wanting to get a hammer and nails involved in this project, I wondered if I could create one with eyelets. Well, yes, yes, I could!
Following an image I found online of a spider web, I began by drawing a series of straight lines onto a piece of cardstock in a star or asterisk shape. (Total of 4 lines creating 8 spokes.)
At the ends of each spoke of my shape, I set an eyelet with my Cropdile. An eyelet was also placed in the center where all the lines intersected. For those eyelets, I needed the Cropodile Big Bite to be able to reach father into my piece of cardstock. Finally, in between each eyelet, another one was set.
Using baker’s twine, I began stringing through the eyelet openings. I followed the straight lines I drew first by pulling the string up through the center eyelet and down through the end spoke eyelet.
Then I followed around the outside “circles” of eyelets with the rest of the twine. Thank you pattern for keeping me straight.
I foam mounted the strung cardstock to a piece of black cardstock. The entire panel was placed on a piece of Pebbles Spooky Boo patterned paper, cut to the size of my frame. The sticker, from the same collection, was way too perfect! May contain spiders…ha!
Who is ready to make some string art with eyelets?! What other images might you try with this technique?
