Wall art for living room (Thread painting)

I made wall art for living room with acrylic paints and thread.

This project by far is my favorite. I hope you love it as much as I adore it! 

I love abstract art and this is what I came up with!

I got the inspiration for my wall art from this wall art.

I used parts of this frame to make four abstract art designs.

The words Live, love and laugh bring good feelings, so I also incorporated them in the frames.


Here’s how I made:

Thread paintings




  • A set of frames
  • Acrylic paints
  • Thread
  • Glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Pencil (for drawing)




  • Cut and size the chart paper according to your frame. Draw your design on it.
  • I have three features in my drawings.
    1) Abstract
    2) Squares
    3) words
  • Using glue (I used glue stick), stick the thread on the drawing. This part takes time and patience.
    1) As you go gluing the thread, press the thread on the lines to smoothen it.
    2) You will have to cut and glue the thread for best results.
  • Once all the drawing is glued with thread you are ready to paint. I used acrylic paints to paint. And went very colorful using all colors.
Here’s a close-up of the thread painting.

    Some lovely work and very bright colours I love them. I work for a plastering company in Birmingham and although most of our work is in the commercial sector we also do some domestic work. At the moment we are working on a friends house and they have just had a new kid. Your site has helped me come up with a few ideas to help decorate the kids rooms, so THANKS
