yarn-wrapped monogram

Personalise this project by picking colours of paint and yarn that compliment your home décor.
Step 1

In one of your disposable cups, add a generous amount of Cocoa paint. Dilute the paint with a little water and mix well.

Step 2

Use a paintbrush to test the diluted paint on the back of your wood plaque.
TIP: Add water or paint as needed to achieve desired “stain” finish.

Step 3

Now, paint the plaque as desired and allow the natural wood-grain pattern of the plaque to show through the diluted paint.

Step 4

Repeat Steps 2-3 with Indigo paint. Set the plaque aside to let paint dry.

Step 5

Wrap each letter with yarn. Add a dab of glue as needed to hold yarn in place.
TIP: For easier wrapping, cut yarn into 1-yard strands.

Step 6

Use hot glue to adhere the letters to the plaque as desired.
TIP: For hanging the plaque, add a wall frame mount to the back of the plaque before attaching the letters onto the front.
