Maze Yarn Art
My 4 year old son, Knox, loves working on mazes. He will sit down with a workbook and tackle really difficult mazes at rapid speed. I had an idea about creating a really simple piece of art that would incorporate one of his interest. I did created this piece with things that I already had around my house. This project cost a whopping “nothing”.
I used the following items on this project:
Random plywood board (previously painted white for another project)
1 red pushpin
Gold metallic paint
Glue gun w/glue stick
Random toy, character,sticker that you want to add to the piece ( I had this felt fox sticker laying around)
I started by inserting the white pushpins into the plywood board in a random pattern. Then, I tied the yarn around one of the white pushpins and began wrapping the yarn around the other pushpins in a random zigzag pattern.
After letting the maze design unfold, I decided where I wanted to put the red pushpin.
I added a dot of metallic gold paint to the red pushpin to give it a little “something special”.
Once I was satisfied with the design, I then cut the yarn from the spool and tied the end around a pushpin. Then I attached my fox felt sticker to a piece of yarn with a dab of glue from the glue gun. To finish the project, I wrapped the yarn attached to the fox sticker around a pushpin. Ta-da!
