Valentine’s Day:: Yarn Wrapped Letters

I mentioned last week that I was guest posting over at How To Nest For Less and sharing a little Valentine’s Day project. I wanted to share the full tutorial here today just in case you missed it!I’m typically not one to decorate for Valentine’s Day, but thought it would be fun to make a little something this year.

Yarn was on sale at my local craft store, so I decided to make some yarn wrapped letters spelling out LOVE.

Instead of using traditional Valentine’s Day colors (red & pink)  I went with a fun yellow & blue, with a touch of gray.Here’s what you need to make your own.


Cardboard Letters

I decided I wanted to spell out LOVE. You could actually do this for a lot of holidays. Like ‘JOY’ for Christmas, ‘BOO’ for Halloween…you get the point.

Wait. Did you notice something wrong with my letters? Yes, you are seeing things correctly. That is a ‘Q’ and not an ‘O.’ The one snag was that my local craft store didn’t have the letter ‘O.’ But, I had set my mind on this project, so I found a way to make it work.

Yarn Inspired Set Design

I’m getting over a nasty bug so I didn’t accomplish too much last week. But, one thing I did accomplish was doing a little set designing for an event at work. The event was an album presentation for the lovely Audrey Assad. {Her record, Heart, comes out on Feb. 14 and you should definitely go get it…sorry, shameless plug 😉 }I actually started working on some of the decorations for this event over Christmas break so I was excited to finally see how it would all come together.

When researching ideas for decorations, I came across these gorgeous yarn chandeliers.


Aren’t they so pretty?

I decided to attempt to make some myself to hang from stage. From there a ‘yarn’ theme emerged for the overall event.

Here’s what the stage ended up looking like when it was all said and done.

I think it ended up looking great! Just a few subtle and simple touches here and there. I’ll be posting a tutorial for the yarn chandeliers hopefully next week.

I hung them with fishing wire from the ceiling. Here’s an in progress shot.
