Yarn Wrapped Letters


I’ve not been very well over the Christmas period, and that has meant a LOT of couch/bed time. Luckily I found a super easy, enjoyable and great looking craft to keep me occupied – Letters wrapped in yarn. I’ve seen a lot of versions of this on Pinterest, and thought I should add my own version.

I got the letters from Hobbycraft, £1.99 each (although I think they are on sale at the moment so might get a few more). they are paper mache, but wood ones would do just as well. The yarn was on sale, £1.50 each, I’m sure I could have found some cheaper on ebay or elsewhere, but I wanted to get started straight away.


In addition to the letter and yarn I used double sided tape and a hot glue gun. I started with the H, deciding first how I would cover it.
In the end I decided that the main layer should be horizontal, I started by doing the tops and bottoms, fastening the yarn with double sided tape, then I completely wrapped the middle vertically before doing each leg. The H was without a doubt the easiest to wrap, the O was the worst. The M was ok apart from the pointy middle bit, luckily my hot glue gun was great for making the yarn stick there. Same with the E, having all those ends were fiddly but the glue gun was a great help in making them stick.

I’m really pleased with the end result, and I’ve already got a commission from my mum to make another one. And I’m making another one for me saying LOVE (predictable I know).


That’s all for now 🙂 (And yes I know I totally glossed over the fact that I haven’t been on here since August)
