DIY thread letters home decor.

February 19, 2015

Lately I spend a lot of time at home. This is not surprising if you know that I’m working from my own flat. This made me look at my own rooms differently. When you see the sun rise and set and every hour in between you start to think what you can improve to feel even more comfortable. So I guess you’ll see more DIY home decor projects here on the blog.

All you need is:
– yarn in different colors
– a cutter
– cardboard
– paper

If you wonder where I got this fabulous copper thread from, I bought it here in Vienna but you can also order it online from Garn & mehr. It’s a German company that I stumbled upon. I wish I could have their whole collection of threads. Aren’t they fantastic?!

Now look how well this letters go with my copper and concrete lamp?! They are meant to be together. You can also make these geometrical concrete planters yourself.
