This simple piece of art is easy for kids to start thread arts. Choose any color of your choice and it will give a good contrast on wooden board. See the step by step instructions below.

Things needed

  1. A rectangular board of width 28 X 13 inches.
  2. 200 strong pins or nails and a hammer to fix pins
  3. Thread, strong enough to hold atleast 1kg of weight. You can choose color of your choice.

Optional efforts to make the art look better

  1. Paint your board with nice color which gives nice backgorund to your art
  2. You can choose a nice velvet cloth for good background

Now lets make this

  1. Draw a rectangle of width 70 cms and height 30 cms. Circumference of rectangle is 200 cms.
  2. Start from one corner and fix pins on the circumference of rectangle with space of 1 cm between 2 pins
  3. Lets give all corners numbering as a, b, c, and d. Tie the thread at corner a and follow the below rules:
    • Pass thread from corner a to first pin of corner b.
    • Pass thread from first pin of b to first pin of c
    • Pass thread from first pin of c to first pin of d
    • Pass thread from first pin of d to first pin of a
    • Pass thread from first pin of a to second pin of b
    • Pass thread from second pin of b to second pin of c and so on....
    • After 30 rounds, you will reach at a point where 31st pin from corner a will be connected to 1st pin of c which in other terms is 31st pin from corner b. So keep on repeating the pattern.
