Hoopy Holidays Snowman
Happy Monday before Thanksgiving! Hope you had a great weekend. I was a little quiet here on the ol' blog last week. Ever get stifled by clutter and things you "have" to do? Well, I was not able to concentrate on anything creative until this weekend. I finally got around to making this Hoopy Holidays Snowman that's been rattling around in my head for quite awhile.
Here's what I used: 3 hoops in ascending sizes (yard sale find), drop cloth, various buttons, orange sweater scrap (or orange felt), and remnant of striped fabric.
Start by cutting pieces of drop cloth slightly larger than the embroidery hoops. Press to remove any wrinkles. I've still got tons of this inexpensive cloth from when I did my stenciled pillows.
well-used-up orange sweater for the carrot to the smallest drop cloth-covered hoop.
For the buttons in the middle section, I layered shiny black ones with some fun crocheted ones I found on clearance once in the scrapbooking section of a craft store.
This guy is hanging next to my entryway table, where I'll be creating a little winter wonderland with my snowman collection. Hubby brought home the cinnamon scented broom from Trader Joe's not too long ago, and I figured it was the perfect accessory for my Hoopy Holidays Snowman. (BTW, how fun are those PicMonkey accessories?)
My decor is decidedly indecisive at the moment, as I haven't brought the Christmas boxes down from the attic just yet. Since we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house, I want to keep the fall vibe going just a while longer...even though the weather is most definitely acting like winter ;-) So, did you pull out your Christmas decorations yet? Or are you waiting until after Thanksgiving?
