Don't know if you heard, but there was a big basketball game last night, and my Orlando Magic fan of a husband was not so happy about the final outcome. He was over at a friend's watching the game, I couldn't sleep, so I grabbed some yarn and other random stuff out of the craft stash and went to work.
Ignore the run-on sentences, grammar freaks. You know how I roll around here.
This is my first attempt at crafting for the 4th of July. I mean, it's not like there's a shortage of these types of decor all over the place, but I believe in some good ol' patriotism.
What I used:
-Yarn (blue and aqua)
-Red lace (because I ran out of red yarn)
-Glue gun. Always a glue gun.
1. Started with the aqua-colored yarn by wrapping it around the embroidery hoop. I used the glue gun very sparingly (glued at the start, middle, and at the end of the strand).
2. Wrapped a larger section with the blue yarn.
3. I repeated that pattern one more time.
4. Carefully wound the red lace around a slightly larger section of the hoop.
(Not shown above - repeated the blue, aqua, lace sections about 2.5 more times (started with the blue first).
5. Dollar Tree doilies were pinched in the middle to create a flower-like effect.
6. Glued about 10-12 doilies on remaining section of the hoop (see below).
And that was all! I think it took me about an hour to complete, due to the whole yarn process. I had the time.
(I used that extra nail below the doilies to center the wreath).
