Using the hot glue gun to start and assist through wrapping the cardboard letter… the ‘K’ was semi-tricky as I has to double wrap through the center to get it all covered.  An ‘E’ or ‘L’ would be super easy to wrap :)

Using the some of the same flower ideas, I made the flowers for the yarn letter, there are a variety of shapes and sizes.  I’ll show you how I made the flowers for my Letter K :)

The red felt flower- take the piece of felt and fold it in half, make cuts down the folded side about 1/4 inch apart but making sure not to cut completely through the felt

The rick rack flowers are very simple just start rolling and securing with hot glue at the base.  When reached desired size fold each bump of the rick rack down for petals…

The 3 circle burlap is just that… cut 3 circles out of burlap making each one a little smaller as you go, hot glue together and finish with a cute button …

The cute twisted flower is simple too… take a 2 inch wide piece off of the long side of your fat quarter, fold it in half, tie a knot in one end then begin twisting, keeping it folded in half and wrapping; securing with hot glue as you work.

    I would love to make my granddaughter the initial for her new bedroom, but I cannot find the cardboard initial. Is it ordered online? I looked at Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby and Michaels, any other suggestions? I love your website and will be visiting often. Thank you for showing something that I can make!!!!!
