Embroidery Hoop Halloween Wreath
Today I'd like to show you how I made this 'wreath' from an old embroidery hoop.
Wreath: something intertwined or arranged in a circular shape.
I chose one of several hoops that I found at a yard sale.
After taking the hoop apart, both pieces were painted with black craft paint.
After they dried, I cut a piece of spider web fabric slightly larger than the hoops.
Glue was applied to the outside of the smaller hoop and the inside of the larger one. The fabric was draped over the smaller hoop and the larger one was added and tightened with the small screw.
The excess on the back, was trimmed with scissors.
It was time to decorate! First, pompom fringe was added with hot glue.
Next on the list? A Bow!
I started with a piece of 6" wide black, sparkly tulle that was 20" long. It was folded in half with a little overlap.
I pinched it in the middle to make the start of the bow.
A black rose was added to hide the string and the bow was tied to the wreath.
At this point, I looked at it and thought it still needed something.
Even with the spider, it still didn't seem finished.
So I gave it a little 'Boo'...
...and declared it 'complete'!
