  • A wood plaque
  • Sandpaper
  • Stain
  • Clear sealant
  • Cotton yarn
  • A small hammer
  • Paper horse silhouette

  • Small nails

Watch the tutorial below, so you can get an idea on how to construct your string art. There are plenty of ways to do it though. This video can be used as inspiration, but feel free to get creative.

You can create a customized one with colors unique to your horse. Add their name for a special touch. These would look great on your horse’s stall door!

Those are incredible! You can start simple and work your way up to a more challenging piece. Horse crafts are so much fun!
