Top Dog Dies Tuesday!

Hiya! Were you able to check out my pumpkin card tutorial earlier this week over at Top Dog Dies? I hope so because that was a fun and easy card that is sure to make someone smile.

Today though, I have a little something different to share with you...  Who wants to have some fun with some felt and home decor?!  Let's go!



This creation was soooooo simple.  First I folded some orange felt into my embroidery hoop.  Once in, I went around and cut the excess off.  Then I took some black felt and cut out three bats from the Top Dog Dies Halloween Trio Die Set.  I thought they would be cute with little googly eyes, so I added them on.  (One tip on gluing felt to felt, you have to use certain glues to make this stick, I used a fabric glue but I am sure there are others out there that work.)  While that bit was drying I took out some woodchips from my most recent Freckled Fawn kit (the letters) and stars from Studio Calico.  I colored them green with a Copic and glued them to my ring.  After everything was set and dry I pulled out some various ribbons that had the Halloween colors I wanted and simply tied them around the screw that holds the hoop together.  Finally, I added a little twine hanger so I could hang it on my wall.


This project was so fun to make and I will happily display it come Halloween.  Get a little felt and this set of dies and the options are limitless!
