I love lettering and typography of all kinds, so my home is full of decor covered in words and phrases. This crochet letters project is a fun way to add some three-dimensional lettering to your home decor.

You will need to cut a piece of wire long enough for each word. For my phrase I used four pieces of wire (three for each word plus one for the heart). To determine how long each piece of wire should be, write out the word using a piece of yarn and measure out a piece of wire the same length.
Step Three. When you have your wires covered in crochet, shape the wired crochet letters into your words. I mostly just used my hands to shape the crochet letters, but the pliers can be useful too. Use your sketch to guide you.
Use a small piece of yarn to secure the spots where the wire crosses and where the words connect to each other. Tie the yarn around the connection, then wrap the yarn several times over the knot, and secure with a little dot of hot glue.
