Wire & Yarn...Valentine Words

I`ve seen a few wire & yarn words floating around lately. Isn`t it such a great idea?

I was happy to find some wire that my husband had lying around and of course I had turquoise wool, so I sat down and went to work.

The "Love" was super easy to do. The "Feb 14" was a little trickier because the wire was fairly thick and I was not able to bend it to cross the "F" or to make the "1", I cut those pieces separately and hot glued them together. 

The problem with that is I was left with a glob of glue to cover over as well. Next time I'm gonna stick with words that flow with a single piece of wire.
In any event they still look good on my window!







Imagine, Improvise & Invent,

Sarah

Oh super cute! Was the wire as thick as a hanger or thinner? I have some thinner I will try it & see how it works...I always forget I have random "supplies" lying around. ;-) LOVE the love!

Soo cool! this is the first time I've heard of this idea-I love that you chose turqoise-my favorite and your pics are so pretty. Just wondering-did you wrap the wire around with hot glue? or push the wire through the yarn?
