Craft Review: String Art Kit

It’s product review time again and this time we are taking a look at a String Art Kit I ordered off Amazon to keep Jack busy while he’s at home. As it was, it kind of backfired… because I ended up doing the kit too.

If you’re an adult and you’d like to try a ‘fancier’ version of string art, I found a couple cute kit options with a wooden background and nails:
