Yarn Wrapped Letters.

I love them.

The possibilities are endless, use your imagination and you destined for

success.

These are some wonderful yarn letters I adore. I started making one for

my daughter’s room.


Here is how I started. I will post the end product very soon.

These are a few ways I discovered while researching



You will need:

  • Yarn

  • Hot glue gun

  • Cardboard Letters or Wooden

  • Flowers to decorate - if you desire (tutorial - how to do flowers will follow)

So here is how I started with my letters, I made these letters from a pizza box (here is a nice tutorial on how to make  letters from a cereal box).


I used the shape of these letters which I bought from Amazon – they had the right shape for my project .

These are not the typical cardboard – wooden letters it is a cheaper alternative however it can be a bit messy and

time consuming. 


You will find a material list at the end of this tutorial.

So I started by wrapping the ends and bottom parts of

each letter.


Tips: You will need a hot glue gun/or simple glue to ensure the yarn stays on/ start on an edge

Glue your yarn in difficult parts like corners, make sure you wrap tight.


Then I started wrapping and wrapping for a while.....

and VOILA!!!
