Newspaper yarn art - "rain cloud"

Newspaper yarn art - "rain cloud"
Love this


Something unique - a newspaper yarn cloud with words taken from the newspaper strung by golden thread to the main piece. Framed in a natural wood box frame (6'' square internally)

**The item pictured is available is one of a kind with the tags "love" and "the rain" taken from a newspaper). Other, similar pieces can be created for you, if you would like something a little bit different.**

The newspapers are full of bad news- by handspinning these bad news stories into yarn and creating keepsakes, wall art and cards to express love, best wishes, birthday wishes, good luck etc. Bad news is spun into good... old stories are spun into new stories.

If you would like your gift to be extra special, newspaper from the day the couple are married, or a baby is born can be used. (This will cost an extra £5). For a wedding, I can send a photo of this item with a little note explaining how their gift will be made, for the couple to open on the wedding day. The final framed piece can then be shipped a week or so after the wedding date. For new babies, a due date and a text when the baby is born will be required so newspaper can be purchased on the day of the baby's birth.

Back dated newspapers (for anniversaries etc) can be used, but will cost more as purchase of back issues can be difficult/expensive depnding on the date
