yarn-wrapped initial christmas ornament

This project is intended for kids 3+. Personalise your Christmas tree with a Yarn-Wrapped Letter Ornament! The letter can represent your kid’s names or even your last name!
Step 1

Draw a letter onto chipboard with a pencil and cut out the shape.
TIP: If desired, you can find a font you like on the computer; then size and print. Cut it out and trace onto chipboard before you cut out the shape.

Step 2

ADULT: Depending on the letter, punch a hole or two at the top.

Step 3

Tie a short piece of yarn through the holes to make a hanger.
TIP: Use the image as a guide.

Step 4

Tape the starting end of your yarn to the back of your letter. Wrap the letter with yarn until it is completely covered or covered how you like it.
TIP: If you want better hold, use craft glue to secure yarn as you wrap.

Step 5

Cut the yarn from the skein and tie the end to a yarn wrap on the back.

Step 6

String alphabet letter beads onto a piece of yarn. Wind it around your letter. Leave a bead letter on the front of your letter ornament with each wrap as shown. Tie the ends to wraps on the back. Trim excess yarn.
TIP: Embellish with pom-poms, sequins, pony beads or leave simple with just your name in alphabet letters.
