Pulling String Flowers
  • White A5 card
  • Acrylic paint
  • Brush
  • Water bowl
  • String
  • Oil pastels
  • Scissors
  • Piece of old heavy card
Step 1

Lay your A5 white card out in landscape view, and fold in half like a book. Set aside nearby.

Next, cut a length of string about 60cm long. Lay the whole length of string down on the heavy cardboard (this is to be used as a painting mat).

Step 2

Start painting the string with the brush making sure to really cover it in paint, changing your colours as you go.

Step 3

Gently move the painted string onto the folded A6 white card. place the string on one side in a zigzag pattern. Leave some of the string out off the bottom of the page

Step 4

Close the card. Place a book on top and add light pressure while pulling the string out.

Step 5

Open the card once you have pulled all of the string out and see your beautiful piece of art.


You can add to your piece of art with some leaves using crayons marker or pencils. You could also try and do another print on top of the one you have already done with another colour. Have fun!
