Hey there. Sorry about that. I totally missed your question the first time.
That's exactly how I made them. I picked up the letters from Walmart ($1.79 each) and then the twine (2.00) each and just wrapped them around. Just make sure you wrap them very tight. My fingers were almost raw from the pulling and handling of the twine. Love how they turned out though.
We are using the picture frame for a picture of my fiances dad. He passed away a year ago so we are going to do a little poem or something and the picture. I'm not sure where I'm going to set this up though. The LOVE will go on the guest book table. My boss at work, her dad does wood working and he's going to make my puzzle for everyone to sign as a pseudo guest book.
