Jute-Covered Letter With Ribbon and Felt Roses

Jute-Covered Monogram Wreath

Materials Needed:

  • 12" paper mache letter (available at craft supply stores)
  • 2 rolls of jute twine
  • felt
  • ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

Attach Jute

Start by securing the jute on the back side of the letter with a glue gun. You'll eventually wrap the entire letter, horizontally.

Start Wrapping

Next, start to vertically wrap it around that section of the N. Put a dab of glue every so many inches to secure the jute to the letter.

Wrap in the Opposite Direction

After wrapping the section of the N vertically, begin wrapping in the opposite direction with the other roll of jute. Secure the jute with glue every 5 to 6 rows.

Wrap Just in Both Directions

Work in Sections

Stop once you get to the corner where the slanting part meets the straight part of the N. Then, start wrapping the middle part of the N with the other roll of jute.

Wrap Horizontally

Then, wrap the other side of the N. Go over the middle to make it horizontal like the two other sides to make it look more uniform.

Attach Rosettes

When you finish wrapping the letter, make three felt rosettes (search Google video for "felt rosette tutorial" to find instructions). You can also make two bows with the ribbon, then attach everything with a glue gun, including ribbon on the back to hang.
