Hobby Lobby had these 8-inch pressed cardboard letters for 40% off which made just over a dollar each.
With a renewed sense of craftiness, I stopped past Michael’s and picked up the perfect cozy autumn colored yarn for half off. Each color of yarn was just under $2 each.
On a completely random note…who knew yarn was so expensive these days? Also, Vanna White has her own brand of yarn…interesting.
This project was pretty quick and I did it on my lunch hour this afternoon while watching a Psych rerun on my computer, thank you Netflix.
Collect your supplies.
- 4 different colors of yarn
- Hot Glue
- Pressed Cardboard letters
- Staple Gun
Decide which direction you want your yarn to be. For the 1st and 3rd letters, I wanted the yarn to run vertical. The 2nd and 4th letters would be horizontal. I started with the ‘F’ and wrapped the letter around horizontally, using hot glue throughout to keep the yarn in place.
Once it was wrapped one time, I went back over it in the other direction.
Finish all the other letters.
The letter ‘A’ was the hardest since the letter had angles so I had to get creative on how to wrap it neatly. I used a lot more glue on the ‘A’ which helped keep everything neat and allowed me to wrap it pretty quickly.
Using a hot glue gun, glue the 4 letters together. I used lots of glue for this to make sure they would stay together after being hung up.
Connect some twine to the back of the letters using the staple gun. Hang up and enjoy.
