How about an easy craft that will catch some eyes? This is a simple crafting project that takes about 30-60 minutes to pull off really well, and it’s fine for crafters of any level, and with really basic materials and skills.
It’s a yarn-wrapped monogram letter, and it’s the work of CatchMyParty who originally dubbed it their “Yarn-Wrapped Ombre Monogrammed Letter”. Who has a daughter, niece, or new baby in the family they can make one of these for? Or maybe make a whole word for a festive season?
All you need by way of materials is:
– Embellishments (cloth flowers or other if you want)
– Craft glue
– A wooden letter (or cardboard! You might double up a few layers of cardboard) which can be purchased from a crafting supply store, Amazon, or a hardware store, or you can make your own if you have a saw
The way you go about it is simple: You start at one end with one color of yarn, and apply glue to the back of the letter for that section (you could apply glue to the whole thing, but its recommended you glue section by section, and then wrap the yarn around the letter until you get to where you want your next color).
