The Austintown library hosted a string vase crafting event on May 6.

Librarian Renee Beverly organized the event.

“It’s an easy project, and it makes a cute Mother’s Day idea,” Beverly said.

Beverly pre-prepared wooden boards with nails in them in the shape of a vase.

Community members were able to choose from a number of colors of string that they wrapped around the nails to form the pattern they wanted.

“It’s really very simple, but the end result is a really cool piece of wall art,” Beverly said.

After wrapping the string, community members chose from a number of fake flowers to finish the art piece.

Placing the flowers into the “vase” made out of string the project was completed.

“It’s a lot of fun, and it can even be changed over time by adding different flowers,” Beverly said.
