I love type. Everything about it. Can’t get enough of it. I collect all kinds of “Ds” and use them to decorate my study at home. I found a small-sized capital D at Michael’s Crafts a few weeks ago. Rather than just painting, I thought it’d be a neat idea to give the letter some texture by wrapping it with yarn.
- Make sure that the end of the yarn can also be glued to the back. You’re going to get glue on your fingers – be prepared.
- Repeat the wrapping around the letter for all the straight sections, and save the corners for last.
- The corners are just a little trickier, and I found that it was easier to spread E6000 on the letter first and then wrap the yarn – guaranteeing that the yarn will hold its place. You don’t have to wrap the corners too tight – just make sure to cover your letter with the yarn.
