My Boy

Today I bring you an altered Embroidery Hoop that is all about boys! I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw that adorable racoon rub-on and the glitter pine tree paper.

Before beginning the project loosen the screw and separate the center hoop from the outer hoop.
Step 1: Cut circle for base paper that will fit center hoop exactly, and ink the edges. Also ink the edges of outer hoop and leave to dry.
  Step 2: Add Rub On's and a partial circle of paper in a contrasting color.
 Step 3: Glue circle to center hoop.  Add a ring of hot glue on the inside to strengthen bond.
 Step 4: Assemble Charms
For mine I used a bicycle, a circle of paper with a rub-on and dew drop, and a clippie with three dew drops. I strung them with twine and draped the twine over the tightening screw.
Step 5: Reassemble hoops, add dew drops to outer hoop.
These paper collections meld seamlessly and are perfect for any forest adventure theme!
