String Art

Posted on Updated on

Last year, I saw a bunch of states with string art and thought they were really swell. I meant to do one last summer, but we didn’t get around to it. This year, Papa and I decided to make one, but instead of a US state, we made something for Cat.

Cat loves China.

She wants to live there one day.

She’s a really neat kid.

We like her, so…

Papa cut a board out.

I printed and cut a map of China.

I cut a heart out around Beijing.

We took turns hammering little nails to outline the country.
