DIY Yarn Ornaments
We make ornaments every year, but this is our first time making these absolutely adorable yarn letters! They are so simple and inexpensive to make, and the entire family (even my husband!) enjoyed making them! These make beautiful ornaments but would also look great at stocking tags or even gift toppers!

what you need
Thin cardboard - such as a recycled cereal box
yarn and twine in whatever colors you like! - don't forget to check thrift stores for supplies!
How to make it
1. Draw or trace large letters onto cardboard and cut out. We made the initials of everyone in our family, including the pets!
2. Using a hot glue gun, attach the end of your yarn or twine to the cardboard letter.
3. Begin wrapping the yarn around the letter, keeping the yarn as tight as possible without bending the cardboard. In order to cover the entire letter, you'll want to wrap the yarn in both directions, horizontally and vertically. If needed, use a tiny dot of hot glue to keep the edges from unraveling
4. Once the cardboard is completely covered, secure the end of your yarn with a dot of hot glue. Using a short piece of the same yarn or a contrasting color, make a loop and glue to the back of your letter.
Seriously, how cute are these?? My husband said, "You know I don't like to craft, but these are fun!" I take that as a major Christmas win!
And how adorable do they look as Christmas stocking tags?
I think I will be making these for everyone I know this year! Along with twine and yarn, you could also use thin ribbon to make these! Happy Crafting!
