Yeah. Well, I wanted to try something like that, but make it easy. So instead of a wooden letter, craft glue, and three different types of yarn, I turned to something simple: cardboard, a hot glue gun, and yarn.
Here's the tutorial.
- Hot Glue Gun
- Any Extra Embellishments you'd like to add
First, draw your letter or shape on a piece of cardboard and cut it out.
Then, get your yarn and glue ready. Apply a layer of glue to the top of the letter and attach the yarn, then start wrapping the yarn around the letter, stopping every couple of rounds to add a line of glue and glue a piece of yarn down. This is to keep it secure.
When you're ready to change colors, cut the yarn and glue the end on the back of the letter. Then get your new yarn and glue it to the back, and start wrapping like before.
I kept alternating colors until I reach the end. Then, I attached the end of the yarn to the letter like I did to start the wrapping process. If you crafty people out there find a better way to start and end the wrapping please let me know (bold, italics, underlined? you know i'm serious!). (-:
Attach any embellishments. I added the same flower I used on my cowbell (see tutorials under the Drill Team Life! tab).
Well, here's how mine turned out:
