You’ve seen string art, but you may not have seen it like this. The tutorial here is for your typical heart and state string art, but the same techniques can be applied to the skyline of the city you live in or a city you love.

Maybe you’ve tried it with your clothing, jewelry, or a few other things, but have you given your home a taste? There are many ways to add geometry to your décor, and it’s probably easier than you might think. While some projects may require a little more brainwork (and elbow grease!), you don’t have to go back to school or even remember any mathematical equations – just pick a tutorial, start with one or two simple shapes, and start creating your own diy geometric projects!
