Wire & Yarn Word Art

I've been wanting to play with wire and yarn to make some fun word art for awhile now.  I've pinned a few ideas in pinterest, check out my board here.  Steve gave me a weekend away for Mother's Day and I took advantage of a day to myself to make this little happy hello word art.


I worked this heavy duty copper wire into this cursive hello using a couple wire tools I had leftover from my jewelry making days.  Then I started to twist the yarn.  I actually used this thick, creamy yarn that i just love.  It is the same yarn I used to make my favorite handmade wreath I made last year.

I just followed the shape of the letters, tying it off at the beginning and the end, and backtracking when I needed to.  Where the wire overlaps itself, I just wrapped the wire together as one.

It came together quickly and was such a fun and rewarding project. 


Now it lives in my entryway and makes me happy everytime I pass by.  A quirky little handmade hello, welcoming all who come to our home.
