How To Make Wool Letters
I started by cutting my letter template from cardboard. You might like to make yours a bit neater than mine. I just drew mine freehand, as you might have noticed by now I have a bit of a scrappy style. But whatever is best for you.
I started by securing the wool to the back of the template. I used good ole' sellotape for the job but hot glue would do just the same. And then just repetitively wrapped the wool around the template. This was quite therapeutic really.
So just keep going. Just keep going. What do we do? we just keep going! [you can probably guess what I am watching as I am doing this, gotta love nemo].. ahum, as I was saying keep going until you are all the way round the letter and then just re-secure! Hey Presto, you've done it.
Now just make yourself a little loop and hang it up. Next time, the plan is to use ribbon instead of wool. I will keep you posted on the result. :) Please leave a comment I would love to hear your thoughts.
