Well, hellloooo! I feel like I haven’t posted a craft project of my own in a long time, so I’m super-excited to be doing that today. Especially because this particular project was simple, quick, and–in my humble opinion–turned out great. It’s just what our new gallery wall needed. (I can’t wait to show you how that turned out!)
Oh yeah, and since I used a frame I already had, as well as leftover yarn from other projects, this cost nothing to make. I bet you could do the same. Got five minutes? Then you have time to do this!
So here we go:
Nap Rating = less than 1 nap…Boom.
Tools & Materials
- Picture frame
- Plain poster board or decorative paper
- Hot glue gun
- Cut out your plain poster board or decorative paper so that it will fit behind your picture mat.
- With the mat on top of your decorative paper, lightly trace the word you want to use in pencil so that it will be centered properly.
- Unravel a decent length of yarn so you don’t have to spend time doing that when your glue is hot.
- Using the hot glue gun, start tracing your pencil line with a line of glue. Work in small sections (I did one letter at a time) so that your glue won’t dry by the time you get to the end.
- Quickly lay your yarn in the glue while it’s hot, then put on a little more glue and keep working section by section until your entire word is complete.
- Cut the yarn.
And there you have it! Here’s another sneak peek at our gallery wall. I L-O-V-E it.
