Nap Time Crafters created this adorable door hanger for Halloween.
I love the idea of both, so I decided to combine them.
First, I typed up the saying, chose a font and printed it out to use as a template. Then I gathered up some black felt, scissors, and pins.
Next, I started cutting out the letter template and then using that to cut the felt. I used the pins to secure the paper letter onto the felt.
Here are all my letters cut out and ready to go! They are not perfect by far, but I am going for a shabby chic kind of look. ;)
Next, I grabbed 3 embroidery hoops of equal size and I grabbed this cool vintage fabric from my fabric stash. Then, I secured the fabric in the embroidery hoop.
Before I started stitching, I tried to lay out the letters and space them where I wanted them to go.
For stitching, I decided to hand stitch the letters using black embroidery floss. Easy peasy.
Once the letters were stitched on, I trimmed off the excess fabric from the embroidery hoops and used a hot glue gun to secure them together. Then I used a ribbon for hanging.
Oh, and by the way. While I was crafting, this is what Miss Maggie Mae was doing.
Snoozin' away...what a life!
