DIY Twine Wrapped Letters & Branch Sign

One of my best girlfriends is having a baby boy! Once I found out what his sweet little name was, I was all over this Birch Branch Sign with Twine Wrapped Letters! His Nursery is going to have a rustic yet modern appeal, and I cannot wait to see the whole design come together.

You can create this DIY Twine Wrapped Letters & Birch Branch Sign, or simply hang the letters on the wall without the branch. There are few supplies that you can pick up at your local craft and floral supply stores, and depending on how many letters you wrap, I discovered that one letter took me about an hour to wrap. The “N” and the “A” were the hardest to wrap, and I double wrapped all of the letters to give them a complete look without any gaps.

The key is to wrap the twine tight, and be sure to Hot Glue as you go! If your Wooden Letters have a similar “extended block” type font, I found cutting around 5-6 3″ pieces of Twine, and then gluing them to the ends allowed for the letters to be completely wrapped in Twine. Once you Hot Glue those little pieces, you can then begin to wrap around them and the rest of the letter with the Twine. I used around 3 1/2 Small Rolls of Twine from Michaels, and I would not recommend using anything smaller than a 6″-8″ Wood Letter (also from Michaels). The small opening for the “A” was especially hard to fit the roll through, or simply cut a really long piece of Twine to ensure you wrap around the opening.
