Golden String Art, DIY Kitsch

Had my eyes open for one of these in a charity shop for a while, but haven't managed to find one.

Maybe your Granny had one of these artworks. Mine did, funnily enough of a boat, which seem to be the main focus of these woven wonders.

Whilst ebaying I found a children's kit for making your own thread art. I'm thinking of making string cactii, stag's heads & maybe even a Jesus.
