Happy Valentine’s Day to you! I hope you’ve enjoyed the e-book that I was able to put together for Valentine’s day ideas. There were some adorable ideas in it from several different blogs!
Today, I’m sharing a tutorial! The other day when we went to our Bright Lights girls club, my friend Holly was there to help the girls make their names out of wire. Thankfully, my friends are getting used to their crazy sidetracked friend always chasing them around with a camera, especially if we’re doing something crafty. This was the same day that we made the Peanut Butter Cup Crescent Rolls. If you haven’t tried them, you should!
What you will need:
Wire – Make sure it is not too flimsy. The wire she brought was aluminum. Others have used coated wire. I wondered if a wire coat hanger would work.
Yarn – to wrap the wire with. Make sure that it is a color you’d enjoy decorating with
Wire Cutters (unless you buy it at the length you want)
Needle Nose Pliers – this is to squeeze some of the wires together
Here’s what you will do:
First, write out in cursive on a piece of paper how you would like your name to look, so you get an idea of how much wire you will need. Next, cut off a piece of wire to make the size of name that you will be making, in cursive. Next, bend your wire to form your letters, like this:
Watch out though, sometimes you’re poking or stabbing someone or something and don’t even realize it!
After your letters are bent, begin wrapping them with yarn.
After you’re done, admire your finished product and go and find a fun place to hang it!
What a cool idea! It looks inexpensive, too!! My girls will love this!!
