Last year around this time I was bombarded with baby shower invites. This year proves to be the same! All of my friends must love Spring time babies or something! In these parts (Florida) it REALLY isn’t fun to be prego during the summer months, so good planning on their parts!
So as a gift I love making yarn wrapped letters using the first letter of the babies name. This is the yarn wrapped letter that I made last year for a friend’s baby shower –
My sister-in-law is pregnant and due in April. She is naming her daughter Arianna, so I picked up an ‘A’ on my last visit to JoAnne Fabrics! This craft is super easy and ANYONE can do it regardless of how many crafty bones ya’ got!
To make your own letter you will need:
- A paper mache letter (I got mine from JoAnne Fabrics)
- Yarn – any kind works!
- Hot glue gun (with quite a few glue sticks!)
Now there really isn’t much to it – you want to wrap and glue. Here is the trick though – plan how you are going to wrap because in the end you don’t want a criss-cross of yarn. I looks better if it is all going one way! Also, glue on the insides or on the side you deem as the ‘back’ just incase you see a little bit of it in the end. Easy enough? Get to wrappin’ my friends!
