One of our most popular DIY crafts of all times is how to make a pink yarn wrapped ombre monogram letter. So we decided to make a blue yarn wrapped ombre monogram letter to give you an idea of how cute and versatile this can be, too!
Blue Yarn Wrapped Ombre Monogram LetterSupplies:
- Yarn (3 shades of blue for the ombre effect)
- Block letter (I used a hollow cardboard letter from Joanns’)
- Hot glue or Mod Podge
- Scrapbook sticker embellishments
Step 1: With the lightest color at the top corner, start by covering the small portion that cannot be wrapped around.
Repeat for the bottom with the darkest color. See photo for example.
You can first paint on the Mod Podge in the area you will apply the yarn or use a dot of hot glue to hold the yarn in place before wrapping; both ways work.
Step 2: Complete wrapping each arm of the “E” or horizontal portions of your letter in a vertical manner. I applied the Mod Podge to one area at a time when wrapping the yarn.
I also used a dot of hot glue occasionally to keep the “tightness” of the yarn in place while the wet glue dried.
Only apply the Mod Podge to one side of your letter.
Step 3: Once the “arms” of the E are complete, begin wrapping the yarn in the horizontal direction. Lightest color of yarn at the top, medium shade in the middle and the darkest yarn at the bottom.
Tip: Make sure to pull tight on the yarn and wrap slowly to create a nice clean, even finish.
Step 4: Add cute scrapbook sticker embellishments. I added a dot of hot glue to hold them in place.
These yarn wrapped letters make the perfect baby shower, boy 1st birthday, or nursery decor! And the best part is you can customize your own colors and embellishments.
The letters are easy to make, but they do take a bit of time so plan ahead! They will make the perfect baby shower centerpiece or homemade gift for the new mom to be.
