burlap embroidery hoop wreath

We were lucky enough to try out some of the cute Christmas dies from Lifestyle Crafts release today of their newest holiday line, Be Splendid.  Using our favorite dies from this kit, we created a burlap embroidery hoop wreath for the upcoming green&red holiday:

It was so fun to make!

To create:

We first painted a 10″ embroidery hoop white then backed with burlap.  To create the bunting, we cut the JOY dies as well as 3 of our fav nesting die style with our Epic, folded them in half and glued the letters on.  We also glued the newly created JOY tags around green striped bakers twine that was strung from 2 upholstery tacks.

To create the accordion paper flowers:

We followed these instructions then customized them for our project using the Santa Silhouette and Flourish dies, both from the Be Splendid line.  We used the nesting circles dies which we love love love because there are so many sizes in one package and as you can tell, Santa is taller than Mrs. Claus so that came in handy 😉

After gluing everything together, adding a bit of toile and a pop up dots to make the Santa Silhouettes stand out, we had our final product that will look great paired with our holiday decor…

…and no, we’re not displaying this cute project before Halloween 😉

With the Epic 6 you can get a head start on gifts, packaging, Christmas cards & more.  Even if you’re not the crafty type, you can buy one for your friend or family member who is.
