Decorative Letters

While exploring Pinterest, I came across a lot of different ideas for making decorative letters .  Michael’s Crafts has wooden finished and unfinished versions for a few dollars, so I picked up some letters to try my hand at making my own.  I decided to wrap them in variegated yarn and decorate with felt and buttons.

First, I covered the exposed ends of the letter “C” and then began the wrap.  With “O”, wrapping presented its own challenges- pushing the yarn length through the tiny center opening

    Did you cut strips of yarn for the exposed ends on the C and glue before wrapping the rest?

    • Yes. I cut them long enough to cover the ends plus a little extra to secure under the “wrapping” area. The start of the wrapping is a little tricky but once you get it secured the rest goes smoothly. When in doubt, use a little more glue on the backside of the letter. Good luck and enjoy!
