I simply used two items to make these - craft wire (mine was 22 gauge because that's what I had) and yarn.
First I cut a piece of wire (I didn't measure anything, I just guessed) and then bent the wire to form the word I wanted it to say. Since I used 22 gauge wire it was easily molded with just my hands. If you use a thicker gauge you may need some round nose pliers. Your wire doesn't have to be perfect and you can mold and shape it some more once its covered in yarn.
Then after I had my words I just wrapped and wrapped them with yarn until it was fully covered. I did use a pinch of glue on the ends to keep them in place and from fraying and tied a little baker's twine for hanging.
Then you can hang your pretties on your tree. I love our tree this year its full of homemade things, as well as all of the ornaments we love to pull out each year- I'll share soon!
There was something really calming about this project to me. I think that's why I enjoy crafting so much, it allows my brain to rest. Is anyone else like that or is it just me?
Thanks for stopping by today!
