30 Days For 30 Dollars - Day 29 - Yarn Wrapped Writing


Wondering what 30 Days for 30 Dollars is?? Read all about it here.


I originally saw this idea . . .

. . . on Family Chic blog.

I decided to give it a try:



With some clothesline found at the thrift store -$1.25 (the yarn I already had)



Here's what I learned:
a.) The lettering will be pretty flopsy until you wrap the yarn around it - the yarn will stabilize it and hold it together
b.) Unless you want to spend the rest of your life wrapping yarn around wire, use really chunky yarn or double/triple/quadruple your strands of yarn. I ended up quadrupling mine and it went pretty quickly.

Total spent today: $1.25
