Pinterest Project: L_O_V_E

I've been wanting to try this project since I first saw it on Pinterest nearly a year ago!  "Yarn Love," from the Family Chic blog by Camilla (find it here), puts a new twist on word decor.  Using pliers, we bent old wire coat hangers into the cursive word "love" and then wrapped the word with colorful yarn.

The coat hangers were rather difficult to bend, so if I were to do this project again I would probably use craft or floral wire instead.  But it was quite fun to wrap!  I've been thinking about other words that could work... and the trick is avoiding words with "i," "j," "t," "f," or other letters that require more than one stroke in cursive.  I'm thinking my next attempt will be "hello" or "happy."
