Yarn block stamp art

I “pinned” this on Pinterest ages ago and just finally got around to copying it.  It’s SO simple, I can’t believe I didn’t try it out sooner.

Here are my supplies:

  • Paint (I used leftover interior house paint, but any paint would work)
  • A wood block
  • Yarn
  • Small paintbrushes

You can’t see it well, but wrap the yarn around the block in any pattern you like.  Tie it off.  Then use the paintbrush to “paint” on the wood block.  Use a paper plate to test out the block (usually the first press has too much paint.)  I used a pretty simple pattern and I think it turned out really well!

Once you’re done, frame it.  Voila!  Cheap art!
