Here's a way to pair jute and wire together to create your very own word art!
For my word art, I chose the word "Live". You should live everyday to the fullest, right? To create my word art, all I did was wrap jute around some jewelry wire. It took a little while to wrap, but once it was finished I had a great piece of word art! It can be displayed on a shelf or table!
Guess what? We will have both Jute and wire on sale today at Blitsy!
Here's what you'll need:
- Wire Cutters
- Scotch Tape
Let's get crafty!
Step 1: Cut your wire so it is 2 yards long. Cut a piece of jute that is 3 yards long.
Step 2: Wrap one end of your jute with tape (this will keep your jute from fraying). Trim your end so it is 1/4 inch.
Step 3: Put glue on the end of your jute and glue it to your wire.
Step 4: Begin wrapping your wire with your jute. Every third twist you do, add hot glue to your rope, gluing it to your wire. Continue wrapping until your wire is completely covered. When you get to the end, wrap your jute with tape and trim. Then, glue it to your wire.
Step 5: To create the word "live", start by creating the curl of your capital "L". Create a loop and go down to the bottom of your "L", creating another loop. You will move your wire over to create an "i". When you get to the top of the "i", create a loop and pinch the wire together to create your "i". Move your wire up, down, and up again to create your "v". Then, move your wire to the right, create a half circle, and then curve your wire down, forming your "e". That's it! Now you just need to decide where to display your word art!
