Get all wrapped up in art.

String art used to be just for squares (and triangles and other geometric shapes) — after all, it was originally invented to make math concepts more accessible to kids. But our new string art system opens up a whole new world of possibilities. From cute critters to fashionable flowers to trendy typography, kids can make everything in the book after learning just three simple methods.

In addition to our step-by-step instructions, this modern take on one of today's hottest tween crafting sensations comes complete with everything string artists need, including a custom Klutz-only tool that makes it easy for young fingers to space and place each pin with . . . pinpoint accuracy. The pin-pusher also makes sure that each pin is exactly the same height every time, removing the biggest obstacle to perfect results.

Our book has 20+ easy-to-create subjects and clever techniques that make a simple process magical, as kids wrap their string from pin to pin and watch their masterpieces emerge. With enough materials to complete six full projects and plenty of ideas to personalize them, kids will be making amazing art in no time. So let's get straight to the point: It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that string.

Comes with: 56-page book of instructions; 1,200 pins; 360 feet of craft thread in 12 colours; 14 decorative sheets of backing paper; 7 foam core boards; 5 sheets of tracing paper; pin pushing tool; glue
