Once I gave up on making it perfect, it was much easier. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful! I wrapped each part horizontally, and then went over the straight pieces vertically. So there are two layers of yarn on the R. My advice: don’t worry about making the first layer perfect, just try to cover all of the letter. Then on your second layer you can make it look more polished.
I keep seeing this adorable yarn wrapped letters on different blogs and thought I would try to make my own. Similar items have been sold at stores for upwards of $25! Yikes! So when I was feeling creative and looking for a project, I knew this inexpensive idea would be perfect.
All you need is yarn and a letter of your choice. I also ended up using some hot glue, but you could do without it. I spent about $4.50 at Hobby Lobby for this project! Cheap!
And apparently Vanna White has a yarn collection. Who knew?
Start by tying your yarn in the back. Make sure to keep all of your “ugly” spots hidden in the back.
Then start wrapping!
Pancake really wanted my yarn.
The letter R was hard! You have to cut pieces of yarn in order to do the whole in the R. I ended up securing the end pieces by either tying them or using hot glue.
And here is the finished project! It’s far from perfect, but it’s still pretty. Probably no one will see the imperfections but me!
The R took me about an hour to complete. Not too bad!
