|Pinterest Yarn Letters - Pin It!|
But anyways, here is how my 2nd Pinterest attempt went...
I first made a pattern by printing the letter with the font and size I wanted. I chose a serif font to give it a little interest. Then I traced the pattern on some cardboard I already had. I traced two since I made it 3-dimensional.
I then cut the two S's out and used a thinner, more bendable cardboard (came as stuffing in a box) for the sides and assembled with painter's tape (any tape will work that just happened to be all I had).
I then wrapped the 'serif' ends first so that I could cover the outer edges of the 'serif' part. That way when I started wrapping around the letter my yarn would all we going the same way (if that makes sense?). It only took me an entire Texas Rangers baseball game to wrap this letter (Note: I was not AT the game wrapping this letter...that would be weird)! Go Rangers! And here is the final product...
And here is where it temporarily sits...
This project only cost me under $3!!
Printed pattern= FREE
Cardboard= FREE (already had)
Tape= already had
Yarn= about $2.50 because I had a 25% off coupon from Michael's
TOTAL COST= $2.50
I really enjoyed this project! It made me want to wrap everything with yarn. I think I might wrap a word next or maybe I should wrap Jade. She could be a yarn-wrapped dog (a.k.a. Pinterest Victim) for Halloween.
