Make Yarn-Wrapped Wire Word Art
1x10' board, length cut to fit your wall
water-based paint, in desired color
raffia-wrapped floral wire
skein of thick yarn, in desired color
3/4" weather-strip nails
hot glue gun
Place the wood board on a flat, level surface. Use a paintbrush to coat the board with two even coats of paint. Let dry.
Unfurl the kraft paper, then scribe your phrase — to scale — using a pen.
Unfurl the floral wire using the traced words as a guide and shape them accordingly. Use wire cutters to create separate letters, or form your floral wire into a seamless un-cut word.
Wrap Yarn Around Letters
Unwrap the yarn and tightly wrap it around the floral wire letters. When you reach the end of each letter or phrase, use your glue gun to secure the yarn in place.
Add Nails to Board
Lay the yarn-wrapped words onto the board, then use a pen to mark points for adding nails. These nails will work as spacers to keep the letters elevated above the wood and securely held in place. Then, add a bead of glue to the head of each nail.
Attach Letters to Nails
Secure each letter or phrase to the nails by setting them on top, then lightly pressing them until the glue dries.
