Fine Motor String Art Tree Christmas Cards 18



Do you still send Christmas cards?  Each year we send less and less, but I want the ones we do send to be meaningful and the way we do that is to make our own.  These super simple fine motor string art tree christmas cards appeal to the scandi style lover in me, plus they are fun and simple to make.  I can see these being framed and brought out year after year.

What you can not see from these photo’s is that we used beautiful metallic embroidery thread that I had to make these cards and they look amazing in the flesh.  But you could use whatever you had and they would look fab with wool, thread or even string.

Materials

Instructions:

I made these with both the boys and my best friends four year old and my top tip it to cut triangles in to the cards to wrap the thread around.  You can cut slits, but if you are using multi strand embroidery thread it is pretty hard to get all of the strands in the slits, especially for younger children.

Once you have cut the triangles in the card at the bottom and one at the top, then come the time for threading the embroidery thread or even wool.

Secure the embroidery thread inside of the card with a piece of tape and then start wrapping the thread making sure you take it round each notch and back through the top center notch.

Once you have threaded it through each of the notches, then secure the thread at the rear with tape before adding a star at the top.
