Yarn wrapped lettters

Great for wall name writing in nurseries or other rooms.
What you need:

  • cardboard;
  • glue (UHU or glue gun);
  • yarn;
  • decorative buttons;
  • hanging hooks (I used the plastic easy removing ones).

Write and carve the letters you need from the cardboard (or use ready made letters sold in libraries or craft shops).

Put glue on the sides of the letters to hold the yarn in place and start wrapping the yarn around. If using the glue gun, work in sections to avoid burning. Stick decorative buttons on the letters and hang them on the wall to create your desired text.

I made several for us or for friends and asked my daughter to help. She liked wrapping the yarn, but soon wanted pens for drawing so have some handy. Great literacy lesson.
