Yarn covered letters - not a new idea, huh? Before someone asks and comments - the picture above is my inspiration - I did not make them, but I do love them. I love the colors they used and the type of yarn they used. I know they have been around forever. I bought a cardboard M months ago thinking I would cover it with moss (remember that trend). That never happened and finally I just decided I had to do something with it. The yarn covered route seemed the way to go.
I totally underestimated this project. It was a little more complicated than I thought. It included trying to figure out angles and busting out the glue gun. I used yarn left over from the Rapunzel hair I made for Halloween.
I love the texture it gives - it seems cozy and perfect for fall and winter, well, and spring if you live in Colorado.
Caption for the freako in the mirror? Anyone?
I stuck it in the back of my niche, AKA my nemesis. I really don't like these and they seem very popular around here.
After living with it for a couple of days, the M has become my favorite thing back there. It was inexpensive, cozy, only took a couple of hours and looks like it was made for there. I think next I'll tackle a wreath - no angles on that one!
