Yarn-Wrapped Ombre Monogrammed Letter - What you need


Step 1:

Apply craft glue to the backside, the top, and bottom of the letter. I glued about three inches, started wrapping, then add more glue as I moved up.

I left the ends of the yarn long until the whole thing had dried. Then I trimmed them.

Step 2:

Add pretty embellishments. The ones I chose had sticky tape on the back, and I was done!

The whole thing probably took about an hour and the longest part was waiting for the glue to dry.

    I was just wondering how would I do this with the letter M without making it look weird. Like if I was to do it ombré like that. It would be a light colour on one side and be dark on the other.

    I made a C out of Chipboard. As long as you are careful card board should work. Good Luck :)
