I promise this will be last embroidery hoop project for a while. This would make such a great Christmas present for anyone in your family.
Gather your supplies:
Fabric (I used Osnaberg)
Sponge or Foam
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Remember to put a hard surface underneath your fabric to stencil. Tape it down good all around the edges. Form your sponge or foam into a ball and dip in the acrylic paint and dab several times on a paper towel to get most of the paint off. Then gently dab the color on the stencil. I only used dark brown and a green.
Put your fabric in the hoop centering your design. Cut the excess fabric off leaving enough to go over the edge and glue in the back. Pull the fabric taut and glue on the back inside with hot glue.
Now, with a heart paper punch, cut the number of family members you need out of scrapbooking cardstock. I cut mine out of a deep red.
Take a Sharpie fine point pen and write the family member's name on each individual heart. Lay them out on the tree and when you get the layout to please you, just put a dab of hot glue on the back and glue them down.
Run a bright colored ribbon thru the top and you're ready to hang it or wrap it if it is a gift.
Till next time, Judy
