My daughter as many of you may well know, is named after my mother. Mai is a less than common name, which is one of the things I love about it. She will always be unique. We have a lot of personalized & monagrammed things for her. I cannot see the letter M without thinking of my little munchkin. So when I was shopping at Michael’s and saw a giant wooden M for sale, I had to scoop it up. Her room is purple with golden & neutral tones, so I chose colors to compliment her room. What you will need: A wooden letter Different colored yarns Elmers glue Scissors Glue gun
Purchase a cheap wooden letter from a craft store or make one yourself.
Form a circle using the glue. Starting from the center begin circling the yarn around itself.
Continue to circle around until you cover the glue circle.
Snip the end of your yarn off and form into the circle.
Working off the edge of the first circle add another glue circle and repeat the circling method.
For circles that are not full because off cut out edges, form half circles around each side cutting off the ends at the edge.
Continue this pattern, making circles as big or as small as you desire.
To fill in uncovered spaces around the circles, fill in with a different colored yarn following the same lines as your circles.
Line the edges of your letter with the accent yarn to smooth out your edges & add a more finished look.
Braid the different colored yarns together & knot each end.
With a glue gun add hot glue on the back of your initial where you would like your hanger.
Press your braided yarn into the glue & repeat on the other side.
Find a place to hang your craft.

Thank you so much . Happy Easter.
This is adorable! I feel like I’d get frustrated and impatient halfway through but the end result is so cute!
Lol! Thank you. I did this over the course of many days. I found it relaxing. It is very cute. It looks nicer in person. Maybe I will get ambitious and finish the rest of her name someday. Lol.
