Yarn + Wire DIY

I found this idea on Pinterest (if you have an account, you can follow me here! Or if you need an invite, give me your email address.) and thought it was rather cute!

The example:

My version:

It was so simple (although a little time-consuming) and a great way to keep your hands busy while lounging on the couch :-) I originally wanted mine to be bright red, but I didn't have any on hand, so I opted for this robin's egg blue instead. It sits perched on top of a mirror frame in our front room, and I'm loving (no pun intended) the way it looks.

Mine is about four inches tall at its highest point, so definitely on the small side. I'm thinking of trying out a longer word (maybe "inspire" or "believe") in a larger scale next.

how pretty! love this blue. did you use a metal hanger?

Lovely. I'm not sure how "inspire" or "believe" would work with the "i," but I guess it can be done. I bet it'd be cute on some gift wrap packaging (maybe just an initial). Cute!

Donatella-- I used simple wire from the garden section of the craft store (I think it was like 20 guage), but I bet a hanger would work too! Although some hangers are pretty difficult to bend.
Smallgood-- Great idea with the gift wrap! I might have to try that!
