I just started bending and making the letters. I just did the general shape to get my dimensions. Then after I cut my word off the spool of wire I tweaked it to my liking. I began with a glue dot to hold the end of the yarn. I was just lazy and didn't want to heat up my glue gun for a couple drops of glue. Every 3 inches or so I used another glue dot, just for security.
It was fun. Cost: $0.
For now I just stuck it in front of our family pic.
