Movie Monday Challenge Darth Vader String Art

It’s time for another Movie Monday Challenge and this month is all about Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Can you believe May is the 40th Anniversary of the first Star Wars movie? I remember seeing it with my older sister. We both wanted to be Princess Leia every year for Halloween for a few years! And who didn’t have a crush on Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill?

 My daughter’s friend Joseph is probably the biggest Star Wars fan I have ever met. He has some really cool Star Wars collectibles and I thought a Darth Vader String Art would be a fun addition.

I’ve made String Art before but just a silhouette so this was a little challenging. Since I wanted to ensure you could tell it was Darth Vader, I decided to leave the image on the board. Here is how I made it.

Cut the image so you have a silhouette and place it on the board. Nail the tacks along the outer edge of the image and along the eyes.

Next, tie off the embroidery string and start weaving it around the entire image. There really is no rhyme or reason to how you attach the string. Just continue wrapping until you like the look.

I added Star Wars wording as well as it needed a little something. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I can’t wait to give it to Joseph next week!

I've wanted to play with string art for a long time, but I haven't tried yet. You've inspired me!

This would be a fantastic easy kids craft! My little ones want to play with their older brother's Star Wars stuff all of the time. This is a great way for them to get in on the action!

I think we were doing string art when the first movie was released! Kind of cool it's making the rounds again :)
