A DIY Hello Sign

Pin It

For ages I have been wondering what the hell to do with the lengths and lengths of French knitting my kids have made.

I reckon I have about 3kms of the stuff just taking up space in my craft closet... OK just a slight exaggeration... but I do have a hellava lot of it because they just keep making it and making it and it keeps them quiet and occupied, so who the hell am I to complain?

We decided to use some of the bright lengths they had made for a quick and easy project - a DIY hello sign. You could use any word, but I just love the playfulness of 'Hello' stuck to a wall.

So if you too have a cupboard stuffed full of the kid's french knitting, here's some simple instructions to turn it into something funky for your home.
