pom-pom code art

Click here for the binary code needed to make a beautiful piece of art that displays your name or a secret message.

Step 1

Choose what you want to say in code (your name, word or saying). Write your word(s) on a piece of paper and then use the binary code key to translate each letter into code.
TIP: For example, the code in the project shown spells out “Jaylah”
- J = 0100 1010
- A = 0100 0001
- Y = 0101 1001
- L = 0100 1100
- A = 0100 0001
- H = 0100 1000

Step 2

Now choose one colour to represent your 1s in the code and one colour to represent your 0s in the code. The third colour will be your background.

Step 3

Arrange your pom-poms in rows to spell the name or word you are coding.
TIP: For example, if you are coding the letter J, and you chose dark blue for 1 and light blue for 0, your pattern would be: Light – Dark – Light – Light – Dark – Light – Dark – Light.

Step 4

Use a glue stick to create a line of glue on the canvas. Stick your pom-poms to the canvas in order. Go slowly to make sure you don’t mix up the order. Let your glue completely dry.

Step 5

Once you’ve written your name, word or saying, you can fill in the background with the third colour.
