Hey there everyone!!!! Can you believe we are already in the month of July?!? That's crazy!!!!!
It's a new month with lots of new challenges going on! The first is a color combo challenge over at Color Me Scrappy! Here's a look:
Since we also need to make this about a celebration, I decided to rock the 4th of July!!! It's a HUGE holiday here in the USA and it's also our Independence day!
Here is a look at an altered embroidery hoop I made for this special day:
I have to be honest here... This looked a whole lot different in my head!!!! I came up with this idea of just tying various pieces of ribbon around the embroidery hoop and it would look fabulous!!! Well, I did wrap a TON of ribbon around the hoop, but I'm still up in the air about the finished piece!!!
I used my Cricut Explore machine to cut out the banner pieces, then attached some twine to them to hang them from the sides!
I grabbed various chipboard letters and the number four from my stash, then painted them and added some glitter!!!!
I used some of the same ribbon to tie a large bow at the top, then added a red, white, and blue button threaded with the red and white twine!
I finished the wreath with tiny red bows all the way around for a little extra detail!!!
And there you have it... A celebratory wreath for one of our biggest holidays!!!
Well gang.. Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
