Make Yarn-wrapped monogram

One of my friend gave me a wooden initial that was painted turquoise appended to a bow that simply wouldn’t stand up assuming that its existence relied on upon it. She needed it to be wrapped in yarn, however didn’t know how to go about it, and sincerely neither did I. In any case several nights later of chipping away at it, this is the thing that I came up with.


What you will need:

  • an initial
  • chevron burlap
  • paint (optional)
  • yarn
  • hot glue
  • staple gun and staples
  • felt


She had recently painted it for me, and I’m happy she did in light of the fact that if there are detects that aren’t secured totally by the yarn, it will be difficult to tell since the shade is the same. I unquestionably suggest work of art your introductory before blanket it in yarn.

I’m not going to mislead anybody, I was completely frightened to do this from the beginning in light of the fact that I’ve never finished it previously.  However, the most essential thing I studied is only concentrate on sections. It makes it so much less easier and it isn’t as moving in the event that you just stress over one segment at once.

I began by doing the two long sides of the M. I tried to get the strings as shut one another as could be allowed, ceasing every so often to paste bits of yarn to the once more to keep it set up. I got as close to the edges as would be prudent so the top edges might be totally secured.


Next, I did the center segment. This was a little tricker. Since it was at a point it was difficult to wrap the strings around. So rather, I cut bits of yarn and joined them independently and glued them to the back. I secured as much space as could be expected. It’s alright assuming that some wood is appearing. This is simply the first layer.

For the minimal edges at the top and base of the sides of the M, I cut small pieces and joined them rather than wrapping it around. I discovered it less easier to do it in this way.


Here’s a thought of what the back will look like. It looks completely insane, yet that is alright! It’s the front that matters, so don’t stress over every one of the aforementioned insane strings on the back!


Presently now is the right time for the second (and last) layer! I took this picture to give you a thought of how I did it. As you can see, I did the second layer evenly. I began at the top and wrapped all the way down to the close of the V in the center, then did a segment that goes over the entire width of the M. At that point, I proceeded down whatever is left of the right side.


When starting on the left side, I did the minimal segment in the center. Since this segment wasn’t secured also in the first layer on account of the point, I made a point to blanket it well in this second layer.

Since the left segment was split up into two, I did the top first. Once more, make a point to keep the strings near one another so the sides will be secured since they weren’t in the first layer.

After you do the lowest part segment, you’re carried out! Yay! The difficult thing is over!


I simply needed to impart this. This is what amount of yarn I had left over. No joke. I utilized a Whole thing of yarn!


This next step is non compulsory, yet I suppose it greatly improves the situation and more expert. I got a bit of firm felt from Hancock Fabrics and cut it fit as a fiddle of a M. At that point, I stapled it on.


I put the staples shut one another so there might be no puckering or bubbles.


While you don’t need to do this step, I suppose it looks better, particularly provided that you’re doing it for another person! It looks superior to each one of the aforementioned insane strings standing out all around.


I loved the essential state of the bow she made, and kept it very nearly indistinguishable (sorry I don’t have a preceding picture of the bow!), however it fell level since it was burlap. I purchased some fabric stiffener from Hobby Lobby and painted it on with a disposable brush. I give it a chance to dry overnight and afterward molded it in the morning. I likewise decrease a piece off the closure and wrapped it around the center to blanket the wire I used to group the circles into the shape.

All that is left is stapling it on the back and you’re finalized!
