Big DIY Letters : Be Mine, Special Valentine’s Day!

February 12th, 2015

After some seasons spent in home decor I saw loads of those big, huge letters made of recycled cardboard, plastic and glass. Maybe too much times, at the point that they became a bit annoying to me. For a new window display project I thought about creating wrapped big DIY letters with a special message for Valentine’s day.

‘Be Mine’: six letters (more wouldn’t reasonable because of the work time!) that actually say everything -and that are visually a kick! What you need: cardboard, hundreds meters yarn, needles and… well, some patience!

Here you go: Start with wrapping on the vertical sides, and get help with colored paper to cover some angles. Double the yarn (I made 3 lengths), fix with one hand the strategic point at each time, get helped by needles on the extremities and wrap, wrap, wrap it to every single corner. Don’t forget to play with colors effects!

For your home decor you can use neutral and pastel colors. I think black might not be a great choice because of dust after some time, so go rather for pale tones.
