Things you will need:

Stranded cotton thread, I’m using bits and pieces which was left after other projects
Glue which dries clear
Toothpicks
Styrofoam
Paper pencil
Clear cellophane

Step 1: 1

First of all you need a basic sketch of the letter you are going to make, since my name is zeyani I’m going to be making a ‘Z’. I drew the letter Z free handed, or you could use a template.

Place the paper which you drew the letter over the Styrofoam, and then place the cellophane on it and insert toothpicks where you need to get the curves or pointy corners.

Thank you :)

Wow, I didn't realize that this was made with thread! Very nice!!

I have a question: I once tried to make a project using a similar technique where I dipped yarn into white glue, but I ended up giving up on it because the yarn kept sticking to my fingers instead and I couldn't keep them in place. Does this happen to you as well?

Thank you :)

no, since i mixed the glue with water. it sort of was easy to handle. hope this helps O.o let me know how it turned out if you try

I did mix the glue with water, maybe it wasn't the right mix :D I will let you know how it turns out when I try again! Thank you! :)
