Take one bucket and fill it with hot water. Pour half a bottle of pink liquid paint into this bucket. Shuffle. Unwind one pack of cotton rope and soak it in room temperature water.

Preparing Colored Water

It is not necessary to dye the rope completely, therefore, to make partial dyeing, distribute the rope as if in folds around the circumference of the bucket. Those. part of the rope should be lowered into colored water, and part of the rope should hang down at the edges. We do the same with the second rope, just paint it in a bucket with blue paint. After an hour or two, rinse the ropes thoroughly with clean water. Let it dry.

Staining process

Next, you need to make the letters themselves. Take a ruler with a centimeter scale and draw a word «LOVE» on a piece of foam. The approximate width of each letter is 19 cm and the height is 30 cm. You can choose the size for the letters yourself.

Draw letters

Cut out the drawn letters with a clerical knife, laying a die die.

Cut letters

Put on the back of the letter «L» a strip of hot glue. Attach the rope. Glue each side of the letter with glue and wrap it around with a rope. You need to wrap the entire letter completely. Try to keep the end of the rope glued to the back of this letter. Do the same with the rest of the letters, alternating colored ropes.
