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)

Yarn

White pushpins

1 red pushpin

Gold metallic paint

Paint brush

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.image

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!
