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

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

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.

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

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.
