[so cheap, so easy]: Twine Wrapped Letters

I've been wanting to try to wrap some letters for some time, but I had never tried it. I bought these letters from Hobby Lobby and couldn't quite decide how I wanted to finish them, so I grabbed the twine and got to wrapping. I'm not going to lie. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, and I was over it after the N and O. My cheap and easy craft turned into a "I'm not having fun anymore, but I must finish this, because I don't want to do it again any time soon" craft.  Know the type? I finally finished, and I love the end product.  All I used was some hot glue to keep the twine in place (no need to glue the entire thing, just here and there), chip decor letters, and twine.  
Nothing says Christmas like, NO. Yeah, I knew I couldn't get away with that one.
ON is a little better, but still doesn't say, "Fa la la la la."
OZ, anyone? I trudged ahead only to discover...
...that I didn't have enough twine. Errrr, are you kidding me? For three days this sat unfinished, taunting me until I couldn't take it any longer.  I even had to go to two stores to find twine...still trudging ahead.
Wa la!  Finally finished, and I love it!


  1. That is so cute! It would look perfect in my country girl house :)

  2. So cute! What's even cheaper, maybe not easier, but you cut letters out of cardboard and then wrap them. I saw it on Pinterest. They did cardboard put some batting and wrapped the letters in fabric. Just hot glued the back. Either way so cute!

  3. Jill, they are about 8". They are the chip decor letter from Hobby Lobby (cardboard). They are not even 1/2" thick, which made them easier to wrap!

  4. These look wonderful! I love that when I get impatient I could still do this while watching my favorite TV show or a Christmas movie!


  5. Your narration cracks me up. I love this too!
