13 String Art On Canvas Patterns

String art patterns do not have to be made solely on wooden boards. You can also find string art on canvas. Wood is the most common and traditional type of base used, but times have changed, and you can give your designs a modern feel with canvas.

STRING ART ON CANVAS PATTERNS

There are several reasons why crafters prefer using canvas over wood. First, it is a lot easier to insert your nails. You only need to use a hammer if your pattern overlaps onto the frame.

Second, you can use shorter nails and even thumbtacks instead of standard nails. And finally, the finished piece weighs less than a pattern created on wood.

If you are looking for a quick and satisfying DIY project, look into string art. Below are 13 amazing designs. We have included both string art on canvas kits and printable patterns.
