We’re getting ready for Thanksgiving guests around here and I’m adding a few little decor touches here and there around the house. I’m especially excited because this is the first year I’ve had a mantle to decorate. We used to have the TV over the mantle back before the living room and dining room were swapped, but now it’s open for me to decorate!
I had been eyeing this knit script wall art that I say in my friend Anne’s book, Knitting Without Needles. Originally, I was going to do something for the baby’s room, but felt like a cozy knit ‘gather’ would be fun for the holidays!
I think one of the best things about this project is how customizable it is. You can choose whatever color or word suites your fancy! It’s easy and inexpensive too. Here’s how I made it.
- Floral Wire
Start by finger knitting one entire skein of yarn. It made about 5 yards. Then, bend your wire into a loose script. Don’t make it too tight or small. You’ll want to adjust the letters once you’re finished, but you should get a rough word created in this stage.
Lastly, thread the fingerknit chain onto the wire word. After the yarn is on, you’ll be able to adjust and re-space the letters to look exactly how you’d like.
It was a really fun and simple project that is perfect for this time of year. Kids can help with the finger knitting and make the project really inclusive!
