Here's what you need to make a Felt Ghost Wreath:
- Kunin® Classic™ Felt Craft Cuts 9” by 12” – White
- Wooden Embroidery Hoop – 4″
- Gingham Ribbon, Orange – Dollar Tree
- Wiggle Eyes, Two – Dollar Tree
- Natural Jute Twine – Dollar Tree
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
Here's how to create A Ghost Wreath from a Hoop:
To begin the Scrap Felt Hoop Ghost, gather all supplies. Remove the label from the embroidery hoop. Loosen the screw at the top of the hoop and separate the inside hoop from the outside hoop. Tighten the screw back up. Use one piece of the hoop now and save the other for another project.
For this project, use the 9″ and 12” widths of the Kunin Felt Craft Cuts. Make a stack of bits and pieces that are big enough. Randomly cut the scraps of felt into strips, some skinny and some fat, with scissors. For this 4″ hoop, you will need approximately 30 strips 9” long and 20 strips 12” long. I love my Fiskars Amplify Scissors for cutting through all weights of fabrics, including felt.
Start tying the strips of felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock marks as a starting point. Continue working around the entire embroidery hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many tied on as possible. Between the 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock marks alternate one short scrap with one long strip. The more scrap strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.
Flip the hoop to the back. Take one white scrap felt strip and fold over the screw so that the tails are hanging down into the center of the hoop. Attach two large wiggle eyes, one on each tail with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trim excess white felt from under the eyes.
Tie the orange and white gingham ribbon in a bow and attach it to the ghost with a glue gun and glue stick. To finish the Scrap Felt Hoop Ghost, use natural jute twine as a hanger.
