- 12 gauge wire
- Baker’s twine
- A cursive typeface for your word. We used Lakeside by Mark Simonson.
Once the glue has dried, make sure the twine is secured and then start the process of completely wrapping the twine around the wire.
Keep the twine tight and try not to overlap too much because it creates unsightly bulges.
I recommend doing this step while watching a movie or listening to an audio book because it can take quite a bit of time and if you rush through it, you’ll definitely be able to see it.
You may find it helpful to unbend certain sections of the letters to get the twine where it needs to go.
It can be hard to keep the twine in place around the corners so feel free to add a drop or two of super glue to help.
When you’ve reached the end of your word, add a few more drops of glue, allow the twine to dry in place completely, and then trim.
