It's a W-R-A-P

I made this a couple of these loopy and frilly fabric wire initials to add to the outside of my friends baby shower gift and one for my niece for her bedroom.  

To form the cursive letter I used paper-wrapped floral wire that I found at Joanne's and shaped them into the letters. I cut scraps of colorful fabric into 1'' strips.  I attached one end of the fabric strip to the wire letter with just some hot glue and started wrapping until the letter was covered.  I ended up wrapping mine twice to make it a bit thicker.

Once you have them wrapped with fabric you can start to add the embellishments.  I used other scraps of fabric to make little bows and to attach the two pieces together and added some fabric flowers.  You could also wrap pieces of yarn or two for decoration and glue on charms, artificial butterflies or other embellishments.  The possibilities are endless!  I just used what I had on hand.

These were super easy and fun to make.  I love adding homemade items to gifts given it that special touch!
