Make Love (Literally)

Just spotted this tutorial on Craftgawker and ‘love’ it!

Make Love Tutorial

How lovely is that! You could do names, favourite words, messages, quotes, numbers – anything – in lots of different colours and styles. They would make the perfect decoration for any room in the house or for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.

All you need is:

– a length of wire reinforced clothesline
– thick coloured wool
– wire clippers and some scissors

For the wire into the word or number or your choice and then tie your wool to one end and start wrapping it around the wire.

When you reach a point, as you no doubt will, where two wires cross each other to form a letter, wrap your wool around both the wires to stabilize the design and hold the word in place.

When you reach the other end, tie a knot and you’re done!

    Very pretty. I especially love the color. But wouldn’t it have been a bit easier to wrap the wool around the wire first and then form it?

    I think wrapping it afterwards helps keept it all together – it binds together the bits that overlap.
