I also needed something unique since I needed to match the color scheme of this bell wreath.
Instead of more purple, I decided to go with gray, white and green.
Collect your supplies.
- Cardboard or paper letters
- 3 colors of yarn
- Hot Glue Gun
In my opinion, the letter ‘O’ is the hardest to wrap. Seems easy, but you have to pass the ball of yarn through the letter to wrap it and it’s just cumbersome. To make it easier, I wrapped it in stages. I cut long pieces of yarn and wrapped the entire letter in three thin layers.
Tip: Use a nail stick or skewer in order to push the yarn into the hot glue. It saves your nails and keeps hot glue off your hands.
Continue wrapping all the letters.
Tip: For the difficult areas, glue short pieces in place before wrapping the letters.
Attach Twine for hanging, using glue or a staple gun. I prefer staples, but if you don’t have a staple gun, hot glue should work as long as you use enough.
Project Cost Breakdown (per Ornament):
3 Cardboard Letters (Hobby Lobby) = $4.50
3 Colors of Yarn (Already Owned) = $0
Hot Glue/Scissors/Twine/Staples (Already Owned) = $0
Total Project Cost: $4.50
In addition to the sign, I’ve also changed up the setup a bit. I swapped out the hay bale and pumpkin for fun holiday trees and new Christmas colors. If I could track down an inexpensive white poinsettia, I’d love to add that as well, but I refuse to pay $10 for one since I’ll probably kill it.
