 STEPS:

  • Draw the design for your letters to the required height and width. If you are worried about drawing these letters free hand you could quite easily print them off and use the printout as a guide.
  •  Next cut your letters with a craft knife, use a ruler and cutting mat for safety and accuracy.
  • Apply the glue to small portions starting from one corner.
  • Wrap around the Yarn on the glued area and Press it little against the cardboard. You can choose single Color or multiple colors of your Choice. Take care of the spacing- The more closer, more it looks neat.
  • Decorate it with embellishments.
  • Fix the ribbon at the back side to hang it on the wall.
