Make Wire and Yarn Word Art

I'm always on the lookout for yarn projects that don't involve knitting or crocheting.  While I can crochet almost anything (and I really wish I could knit), it's nice to have other options for using up odds and ends left over from making afghans and sweaters.  At Family Chic, Camilla came up with the idea of wrapping yarn around a wire form to make lovely word art.  She used heavy-duty clothes line to make her wire form, but  you could also use a wire hanger or any other suitable wire you have on hand.  This would be cute as part of a mantel display or on a wedding shower buffet spread!  [how to make wire and yarn word art]

Project estimate:

  • Yarn, on hand or $1 and up
  • Wire, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  Free and up
