GHOST FELT SCRAP WREATH CRAFT

Gather all supplies. Remove the label from the embroidery hoop.

Loosen the screw at the top of the hoop and separate the inside hoop from the outside hoop.

Tighten the screw back up.

Use one piece of the hoop now and save the other for another project.

For this project, use the 9″ and 12” widths of the Felt Craft Cuts.

Make a stack of bits and pieces that are big enough.

Randomly cut the scraps of felt into strips, some skinny and some fat, with scissors.

For the 4″ hoop I used to make my wreath, you will need approximately 30 strips 9” long and 20 strips 12” long.

Start tying the strips of felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots.

Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock marks as a starting point.

Continue working around the entire hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many tied on as possible.

Between the 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock marks alternate one short scrap with one long strip.

The more scrap strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.

To make the eyes of the ghost, flip the hoop to the back.

Take one white scrap strip and fold over the screw, so that the tails are hanging down into the center of the hoop.

Attach two large wiggle eyes, one on each tail with a glue gun and glue sticks.

Trim excess white felt from under the eyes so it looks like the eyes are hanging there.
