Basic Supplies

straight pins, wire cutters

Directions

STEP 1

Spread hot glue on foam wreath in sections; adhere Spanish moss until wreath is covered.

STEP 2

Wrap fishing line around wreath snugly, but not tightly, to hold moss; tie to secure.

STEP 3

Die cut and emboss five poinsettias from Red Hot cardstock, one large (with 2 different size petals) and four small (with same size petals). Die cut stamens from Gumdrop Green cardstock and centers from Fuse Green cardstock. Assemble poinsettias and embellish centers with gems. Die cut 10-12 leaves; set aside.

STEP 4

Tie ribbon into bow; trim edges. Hot glue ribbon on left side of wreath, securing with straight pins into wreath.

STEP 5

Arrange poinsettias and leaves over wreath and ribbon as shown; hot glue into place.

STEP 6

Die cut three medium and two large snowflakes from glitter cardstock. Cut five 3” lengths of florist wire; adhere to back of each snowflake. Apply dab of hot glue to bare end of wire and insert into wreath among poinsettias.

Tips

  • Gently shaping the poinsettia petals and leaves with fingers adds dimension and creates a more natural look.
  • Two bags of Spanish moss give excellent coverage for a wreath.
  • Don’t have red gems? Clear gems can be “colorized” with markers.

  • Cotton batting, 5”x5”
  • Lightweight vinyl, 5”x5”
  • Cutaway embroidery stabilizer, to fit your embroidery hoop

Basic Supplies

scissors, pen or pencil, ruler, bamboo skewer, masking tape, pressing cloth, iron and pressing surface

Directions

Size

4″x4″

Embossed Monogram Coasters

(Note: Materials and instructions are for one coaster.)

1. Hoop stabilizer in embroidery hoop. Place hoop on machine and run color 1 which outlines coaster and stitches placement lines that will be used later in the construction. When color 1 finishes, remove hoop from machine and using pen and ruler, extend placement marks onto stabilizer as shown.

2. Lightly spray back of cotton batting with Sulky KK2000 temporary adhesive spray. Place batting in hoop with sticky side down; smooth with fingers to adhere batting to hoop. Place hoop on machine and run color 2 which tacks batting to stabilizer. Remove hoop when color 2 finishes and trim batting close to stitches using appliqué scissors as shown.

3. Lightly spray wrong side of one 5”x5” fabric piece. Place fabric in hoop, centered over batting square. Smooth fabric with fingers to adhere to batting.

4. Place hoop on machine and run color 3 which tacks coaster fabric to stabilizer. Run color 4 which stitches the embossed monogram letter. Remove hoop from machine when color 4 finishes.

5. Turn hoop to the back and place 5”x5” vinyl over outline of coaster; tape in place. On back of hoop, place 5”x5” cotton fabric centered over vinyl and tape in place.

6. Turn hoop back to the front. Fold two 5”x5” pieces of fabric in half with wrong sides together; press to form crease. (Note: The two pieces now measure 2-1/2”x5”.) Using placement marks on stabilizer, line up the creased edge of one back piece to the RIGHT side placement marks as shown with pins. Tape in center of design.

7. Place second folded 2-1/2”x5” fabric piece into hoop, lining up the creased edge with the placement lines on LEFT side of hoop. This piece of fabric will slightly overlap the first piece. Tape in center and over top and bottom pieces where fabrics overlap (as shown by pins). This will ensure presser foot doesn’t catch on overlapped pieces.

8. Place hoop on machine and run color 5 which stitches the back pieces to the front. Remove hoop from machine when color 5 finishes. Turn hoop to back and carefully trim away all excess fabric and vinyl from back of hoop.

9. Unhoop design. Using sharp scissors, carefully trim all around coaster outline, leaving about 1/4” seam allowance. Turn coaster right side out through flaps on back.

10. Use blunt end of bamboo skewer to poke out corners so they are smooth.

11. Turn coaster to back. Cut 1/2”x3-7/8” strip of Heat N Bond Ultra to seal opening on back of coaster.

12. With rough side facing up, place Heat N Bond strip on back of coaster just inside the opening of the back pieces. (Note: To avoid melting the vinyl inside the coaster, use a press cloth when pressing.) Press opening to adhere the Heat N Bond strip; allow to cool. When cool, carefully remove paper backing.

13. Turn coaster to front. Use press cloth to press coaster again. The back of the coaster should now be sealed. Press coaster around edges to ensure seams are flat.

Embellished Towels

Crafts ’n things Craft of the Day

Add a colorful fabric band accent to a towel for a one-of-a-kind gift or to coordinate with your household color scheme. Great for using your favorite leftover fabric or to make for various holidays!

Materials

  • Plain white towel
  • Fabric scraps
  • Coordinating all-purpose thread

Tools

  • VIVO™ by SINGER® Create & Repair Machine

Basic Supplies

scissors, straight pins, tape measure, iron and pressing surface

Directions

Measuring & Cutting Fabric

1. Measure width of towel from edge to edge; add 1” to measurement.

2. Determine height of towel for band (2”-3” is usually good height); add 1” to measurement.

3. Cut fabric scrap using width and height measurements taken in Steps 1 and 2.

ADDING EMBELLISHMENT

1. Fold under 1/2″ on each raw edge of fabric to wrong side. Press.

2. Position fabric band on towel, pinning in place to secure.

3. Insert appropriate needle into VIVO™ Create & Repair Machine for fabric to be sewn.

4. Set machine for straight stitch.

5. Thread top of machine and bobbin with all-purpose thread in color that matches or blends as closely as possible to color of fabric band. (Note: If trying to choose between two colors, opt for darker color which will usually blend in better than lighter color.)

6. Carefully stitch close to folded edge on all four sides of fabric band. Be sure to remove pins as you sew. The presser foot will help guide fabric evenly while stitching.

7. Backstitch at beginning and end of stitching to help secure thread in place. (Note: Backstitching secures machine stitching so threads do not become loose. It is done by reversing few stitches on top of or just next to those machine stitches at beginning or end of line of machine sewing. To backstitch, position needle about 1/2″ from top edge of fabric. Stitch in reverse almost to raw edge. Change to forward and stitch to end of fabric. Reverse and backstitch about 1/2″.)

8. Remove towel from machine. Trim thread tails.

Tip

  • The more slowly you sew, the more control you have guiding the fabric while stitching.

Transfer two pumpkins, two leaves, and outline of sign to plywood or basswood; cut shapes from wood. Sand all rough edges; remove dust with damp paper towel.

2. Drill holes in pumpkins and oval (sign) where indicated by “X” on patterns. Use Figure 1 as guide to drill holes in plaque.

3. Use flat brush to basecoat all surfaces of the following: pumpkins Pumpkin; plaque, sign, and leaves Black Green. Apply crackle medium to front and sides of plaque; set aside.

4. For pumpkins, use large shader brush double loaded with Pumpkin and Poppy Orange to shade sections. Paint stems Black Green. Use 1/4” square stencil and sponge to checker leaves with Green Sea.

Tips

  • Use pre-cut wooden pumpkins instead of cutting your own with a scroll saw.
  • For a year ‘round “Welcome” sign, make different embellishments to replace the pumpkins, such as turkeys, Christmas trees, hearts, shamrocks, bunnies, flags, etc.

Great Finds Friday: Chic Home Dec, Fab Tools from FloraCraft®

Welcome to another Great Finds Friday, Crafters! Today, I’m going to share three exciting new creative options from FloraCraft®, makers of Make It: Fun® Foam. You’ll also get a chance to win a $50 FloraCraft® gift card, plus an opportunity to earn another $50 if a project you create with your prize gets published!

First, we have to take a look at the new three-piece Make It: Fun® Foam Tools set. I love craft tools, gadgets, etc., because I know great ones will make my creative process easier and more enjoyable. That gets me crafting more often, which is always good. This new tool kit includes three handy plastic tools for creating new shapes and textures out of craft foam. The Rasp has a rough side for gently smoothing the foam’s finish, rounding rough edges, and smoothing out cut marks. The easy-to-grip, serrated Knife smoothly cuts through foam. The Tuck & Scribe tool has a rounded end to etch patterns into foam, and a pointed end that is designed for tucking fabric pieces, felt, or ribbons into foam to create an all-over fabric finish without pins or glue. The tools are kid-friendly, too, and have a suggested retail value of $3.99 for the set of three. I think these would make ideal party favors at a crafty girls-night-in event!

One of my favorite new FloraCraft® products is the Design It:® LED Light Strand. You can add it to your dried and silk floral arrangements, even submerse it in a water-filled fresh arrangement. Place your completed floral design in a dark corner of your home to provide a soft light, or use it to bring a festive glow to the dinner table at holiday or everyday gatherings. These lights would be gorgeous entwined in evening reception table arrangements, too. Everything looks better by candlelight, and these tiny, sparkling, battery-operated lights give you that effect. Imagine them peeking out through pine boughs decorating your holiday mantle or bannister; because they have attached battery packs, finding a conveniently placed outlet is never a problem!  And battery packs can be refilled when needed for long-time use. The 34-1/2”-long LED Light Strand contains 15 warm white lights perfect for topiaries, plants, floral arrangements, and water-filled vases. Suggested retail price is $5.99. FloraCraft® also offers Design It:® LED Lighted Branches, not shown, as another creative illumination option; they retail for $7.99. You can learn more on the FloraCraft® website.

Design It:® SimpleStyle® Decorative Mesh from FloraCraft® bends easily and holds its shape, making it perfect for creating wreaths, bows, garlands, and other dimensional accents for home or special events. Metallic strands woven throughout provide extra sparkle to anything you drape, wrap, or tie with Decorative Mesh. Tie bows around chair backs for a festive event venue, loop and pin one or more colors together on a foam wreath form, or add mesh to wall hangings and gift packages. Crafts ‘n things Weekly featured this darling mesh-topped Gift Box Topiary in the October 9th issue; simply cover foam cubes with decorative paper and top with Decorative Mesh curls and bows for instant Christmas WOW! Decorative Mesh is available in 6” and 10” widths on 10-yard spools in the colors shown below. Suggested retail price is $6.99 and $7.99 respectively.

Remember to visit the www.makeitfuncrafts.com website for craft projects and the www.designitflowers.com website for floral arranging how-tos from the talented design teams at FloraCraft®, and learn more about the rest of their expanded product line. You’ll also find hundreds of easy, creative project ideas for decorating your home, gifting, entertaining, and engaging your kids in non-electronic fun.

Haunted Halloween Birdhouse

Hello crafty friends, Alice here today sharing a fun project created for Me & My BIG Ideas using some of their new Halloween products. This started out as an inexpensive, unfinished wooden birdhouse from the craft store. After sanding down the rough spots, the top edges were painted lime green and the base was painted black. Since the sides and roof are covered with paper, only the edges need to be painted.

This particular style of birdhouse came with lots of windows (or maybe they are doors?) and I thought it would be interesting to figure out a way to add a light inside to up the spooky factor. Turned out a strand of Christmas lights was just the thing.

I drilled holes in the bottom of each section and pushed part of the string of lights inside. Then I attached the house to a cardboard box lid from the recycle bin, which covers up the extra cord. The box lid was painted black and a small opening was cut in the back to accommodate the plug.

A piece of vellum was layered over each window, which keeps the strand of lights from showing and also allows the mini bat (sticker) to look like it is flying out of the window.

One of the best parts about designing for a company is that you get to see new products before they hit the stores. One of the downsides is that you are often working with prototypes where each piece needs to be cut out by hand. So please don’t pay attention to my messy cutting job… this cute banner sticker is cut much more precisely in the final product!

The final version of this chipboard bat sticker is covered with black glitter (which I didn’t realize when I attached the plain black prototype… so picture this guy all blinged out). A craft knife can be used to cut a small slit in the perch for the bat to rest on.

It looks so much better all lit up, don’t you think?

Here is a peek at another side. Love the candy… one of my favorite things about Halloween, too.

And here’s a look at the back of the house. All of these papers are from a single paper pad.

This is one of the stickers in the new collection… I thought it made a fun “Welcome” sign to hang on the house.

Supplies

  • Me & My BIG Ideas Halloween 6″x6″ Paper Pad and assorted embellishments
  • Therm O Web: Permanent Tape Runner, SuperStik Glue Stick
  • Vellum
  • Acrylic craft paints: lime green, black
  • Strand of white lights

Happy Crafting!
