DIY: Weave an Ombre Design on a String Art Heart


Ombre or variegated yarn makes for beautiful string art! One problem that I've run into though is that the yarn color changes too slowly, and as a result, the finished piece doesn't have much variation. To solve that issue, gather your supplies and follow these steps.

Supplies needed:

  1. Variegated or Ombre yarn
  2. Pegged Board: I used the heart from my String Art craft line. It comes with the pegs set.
  3. Scissors


  1. Tie your string to the top center peg of the heart.
  2. Wrap it around the lower center peg.
  3. Then, wrap those same pegs a second time. By double-wrapping each spot, you'll use twice the amount of yarn showing off the color change.
  4. Move over one peg clockwise from each of the two starting pegs. Wrap twice like before.
  5. Keep going clockwise around the heart until you complete all the pegs, double-wrapping each time.
  6. Tie a knot around the top peg to finish.
  7. Hide the loose ends under your weaving and trim excess.
