DIY: Yarn Wrap Letters, Monsters Inc Style

I have seen PLENTY of Yarn wrap letters floating all over pinterest and I think they look adorable. Especially for a nursery room. So I decided that I would make some for my son Xander (who will be gracing us with his presence sometime in September) But I wanted to put my own spin on it and make it unique.

His nursery is going to be monsters inc themed. I knew right away what kind of color yarn I wanted. But I needed an extra touch. So for the “Mike” letter I went to Micheals and purchused a googly eye and for the “Sully” letter I decided to purchase purple felt and cute our circles for his polka dots. The letters I bought from Joan Fabric. They were just cardboard letters.

Supplies Needed: Teal Yarn (for Sully)

Green Yarn(for Mike)

Googly eye

Felt Cut into Circles

Glue or tape

Cardboard letters

To start wrapping you want to make sure that you glue the staring point of the yarn to the BACK of the letter. I am sorry that I did not get a picture of this but I did get a picture of how I started to wrap the letter K. If you have spaces that are not covered you can go back over those by just cutting a piece of yarn and gluing it on. The X was a little difficult because of the angles but just play around with the yarn and figure out what works for you

After about two and a half hours I finally had a finished product and it’s ready to be put in the nursery.(These are also great props for newborn phots, which I plan on using them for that as well.)

Mike and Sully together again
