Get the Look: Whimsical D.I.Y Twine Wrapped Letters

Today I have another amazing D.I.Y tutorial to share with all of you – Whimsical D.I.Y Twine Wrapped Letters! I was inspired to make this guide from all the amazing yarn wrapped letters I’ve been seeing – from adorning wishing well tables to being an adorable prop for engagement and wedding photos, it’s an understatement to say that over-sized letters are en vogue.
