I love browsing blogs and I love browsing Pinterest.
Usually the incessant browsing of Pinterest leads me to the browsing great blogs.
A few weeks ago I came across Yarn Wrapped Letters from My Sister's Suitcase
I knew immediately I had to try this. These would be perfect for my sister's bridal shower!
I scoured EVERY.SINGLE craft store in my area for paper mache block letters. No one carried them... I was a sad little crafter. I searched high and low online to find affordable ones when I reached heaven! Consumer Crafts was the answer. Not only did I buy my paper mache letters from here but they have so many great things I can't find in stores, for such a great price!
I got the 12" letters and I bought round mirrors to help accent the centerpieces. Once the shower is over, I plan on doing a sunburst mirror with one of them (or a few).
Back to my letters. I was so in love with these yarn letters.
Now, the colors for my sisters shower are green and white/silver.
I bought 3 different colors; a light green, a dark green and white and went to town.
I didn't include a tutorial, because My Sister's Suitcase did an excellent job! I followed theirs almost to a 'T'.
Here was my end result:
I love the way they came out. I decided to do different patterns on each letter and the V is my absolute favorite. I adored the way My Sister's Suitcase had the letters stacked- so I gave that a whirl. Don't mind the log in the corner. It's a piece of our Christmas Tree trunk. I love the rustic look it gives on the top of the cabinet.
Itching to try some yarn wrapped letters? I still want to do more. Steve (my fiance) suggested our initials. I get all giggly when he gets into my crafting and starts shooting out ideas.
