DIY Yarn-wrapped Letter

  • First, just cut out a letter from cardboard or buy one from a craft store. If you're cutting it, trace it first. It's ok if you mess up-the yarn will cover most of it anyways.

  • Now, this is the hardest part. All you have to do is make up for the spots you won't be wrapping yarn around. In places where two parts of the letter connect, you can't wrap both sides at the same time. So first, imagine how you're going to cover your letter, wrapping it horizontally/vertically/ what places you won't be able to get.

  • So measure the length you'll need to cover- as long as it is from the end of the letter to the part where they connect

  • Take that length, wrap it around your finger, adding a centimeter or so

  • Now wrap it around multiple times. Make sure the length that you had measured is the length between your two fingers, not counting the yarn on the other side

  • Do it on every part where two parts of the letter meet.

  • I had forgotten to do this, so learn from my mistake! Make sure to do it there too, before you start wrapping.

  • Now start where letters may branch off. Glue the end down, and start wrapping!

  • After this, just choose a branch then wrap it to the strands at the end. Go to the other branch(if any) and wrap that one too.

  • Now for the end, there are all these frilly things. When you wrap, start at the inside corner and go to the outside corner-you'll want to cover those.
