Looking for an easy way to make personalized art? Try making a yarn-wrapped name! This project is especially great for folks with uncommon names, who may find it difficult (or even impossible) to locate store-bought items bearing their moniker. Heather used a fun tool called a Loopdedoo to make this project even easier, though it isn’t necessary. (But once you watch the video, you will want one!)
- Pipe cleaners, on hand or $1
- Yarn, on hand or $1 and up
Total: Free and up!
Wrap a pipe cleaner with yarn, starting at one end and working to the other, until the entire thing is covered. Depending on the length of the name or other word you want to spell out, you may need multiple pipe cleaners.
Bend the pipe cleaners into cursive-style letters. Twist any loops to keep them secure.
When you reach the end of a pipe cleaner, twist it together with the end of another pipe cleaner.
Use additional yarn to wrap around any pipe cleaner ends that are showing.
