Craft Night {yarn-wrapped letter}

Now that we've started crafting, we just can't stop. The lovely KMac opened up her home to us last night and hosted our second craft night.

We worked on all sorts of things, mostly yarn related, including Thankful Treesyarn wrapped wreaths, a yarn wrapped monogram, and a coffee filter wreath.

I made a couple yarn wrapped wreaths last Thanksgiving {here & here} so I decided to expand my horizons and try a yarn wrapped monogram.

Our projects in various states of done-ness.

My "E" ended up being a lot of fun to do - the end result is perfectly imperfect and I realized that I had to embrace that pretty early on. I did learn a thing or two and if I did another one, I would take a little bit more care to cover my corners. Every letter is going to have it's own unique set of problems depending on whether you have a straight or curved letter. If you try it, I would study a few on Pinterest and then have a good plan in place before you start - you will need to wrap it several times in different directions.

The big star of the night was Kara's fabulous {giant) Sizzix machine. We used it to cut our felt flowers to embellish our yarn-y projects.

This morning I have a happy little 4 1/2 girl who loves her new E for her room (she's already asking where the L's and the A are). I call that a craft night success!


  1. Good job on your "E"! I made a "T" a few weeks ago and it was really hard! The corners and the little sides are the WORST...

  2. "perfectly imperfect" - love that phrase!

  3. Oh I'm so jealous of your craft night! I live in Michigan too, but over on the east side of the state. Boo... I went to Grand Valley though! :) Your children are beautiful too. I'm gonna start following you since I don't often see too many bloggers from Michigan!

  4. Popping over from Delightful Order! Just bought supplies to do some yarn wrapped letters and felt flowers last night! Now I'm a bit scared, ha ha! But thanks for the heads up! I will definitely read up before I start!! Your E looks fabulous to me!! I can see why your daughter loved it!

  5. I want to come! What a very fun craft night. All the projects turned out adorable! I am so happy to have you share this @ Show & Share, thank you!
