Over the weekend I was invited to a baby shower for baby Mia and I wanted to make her something special and unique because that is what she is. I created yarn-covered letters for Baby Mia to place in her nursery. All you need is yarn, tape, hot glue for the hard spots, and a few embellishments.
What I learned from making DIY Yarn Letters:
1. It’s not as easy as it looks.
2. It can be very therapeutic.
3. You will cuss a few times when you burn yourself with the hot glue gun or the yarn slips out of place causing you to start over.
4. You will be thankful for short names.
5. It’s totally worth any stress because you will love the end result and you will be a pro for the next time you decide to do this.
6. You will totally see any of the mistakes you made, but nobody else will because they aren’t as anal as you are and from a distance it looks great.
What do you think? I think it turned out pretty well for an amateur yarn-letter crafter (Is that even a person? ha ha).
I hope Baby Mia and Mommy will love the letters as much as I enjoyed making them!
Don’t judge my “A”! There were a few spots that were tricky, but I think it adds character.
If you are interested in making some of your own, I highly suggest that you check out this tutorial so you can ace it on your first try!
