Hey Pebbles friends and fans, Becki here. Christmas is right around the corner. I love Christmas and I love making my own Christmas decorations. I put a little spin on a traditional banner to create a banner to hang in my home for Christmas this year. I used 3 embroidery hoops, die cuts, stickers, and patterned papers from the brand new Holly Jolly collection.
The first thing I did was to fill the inside of these hoops with patterned paper. I used a strong liquid adhesive to adhere the embroidery hoops to the patterned papers. After the adhesive dried, I carefully cut around each embroidery hoop with an craft knife.
I wanted the banner to have the word “JOY” in it so I hand cut the letters from the blue snowflake patterned paper. I chose the blue patterned paper because I wanted a contrasting color against the red and green backgrounds.
Then I chose a few die cuts, stickers, and red buttons to embellish the banner.
I couldn’t be happier with how this project came together. I love that it’s just a little bit different than a traditional banner because of the embroidery hoops.
The letters are adhered to the patterned paper on the back of the hoop with dimensional adhesive. I added die cuts and buttons to the front of the hoops. I made sure to use a string liquid adhesive so the embellishments stayed in place when I hung my banner.
This project looks complex but it really isn’t it came together very easily. What home decor Christmas projects have you created? You should try creating your own embroidery hoop Christmas banner. It’s easy and SO cute. Thanks for stopping by the Pebbles blog. I’ll see you again soon!
