About a month ago, I bought tons of yarn. Why? Well, they were on a crazy sale and you can use them for so many things! My first project? A yarn wrapped letter.
With that said, here is the tutorial!
Yarn Wrapped Letter
1. Grab some cardboard and cut out the letter of your choice. I just found a giant "S" online. Then, I printed it, cut it, and traced it onto the cardboard. Make sure you also have cardboard about an inch to an inch and half thick to give your letter its dimension.
3. With your glue gun and yarn, cover the ends by gluing the yarn as close as possible as seen in the picture. If your tape is showing, add a few more yarn strands to make sure it is all covered. Once you are done with the first end, do the other one as well.
4. Start wrapping your letter! Just keep wrapping, wrapping, and wrapping until every blank space is covered and looking "yarny"! I did not glue every single piece... You do it so tightly that it does not need the glue. You may run into a few spots where you do need it though. Keep your gun handy!
5. You are all done! Good job! Your letter looks great and now it is time to show it off! Once we move into our apartment, this will hang on our gallery wall in the living room!
After wrapping my S, I also decided to take on some wine bottles to go on our mantle and kitchen bar. Here is how the first one turned out...
