SILHOUETTE HOOPS & BANDAGED BOO
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Embroidery Hoops (We used a 250mm hoop for the witch & ghost and a 200mm hoop for the pumpkin)
- Black acrylic paint (Semco Craft & Art Matte Acrylic Paint)
- White & orange crystal organza
- Crafters Choice Fabric Glue
- Papier mache letters - BOO
- Black paint
- Paint palette
- Glue dots
- Joggle eyes
- Hemming tape
Seperate the inner and outer hoop and paint them using black acrylic paint. Let them dry.
Once the hoops are dry, cut a piece a crystal organza slightly bigger than each hoop. Secure it inside the hoop.
Print out the silhouette templates and pin them to the black fabric and cut them out.
Using fabric glue, secure the black silhouette to the crystal organza within the embroidery hoop. Finish by trimming off the fabric at the back of the hoop. They are ready to display!
Using a brush, paint your letters in black acrylic paint. Allow to dry.
Tip: Rest your letters on straws to prevent them from sticking to the surface underneath.
Stick two pairs of joggle eyes on to the front of each letter. Mix up the sizes if you like.
Tip: Typically, the larger size eyes require gluing (we used glue dots) and the smaller eyes are self-adhesive once you peel of the backing paper.
Now we are going to bandage up our BOO! On the back of your first letter, stick a glue dot close to one edge and stick the end of the hemming tape overtop.
Wrap the hemming tape around your letter in a section as big or small as you like, being sure
not to cover any sets of eyes on the front. Finish section by cutting and sticking the end of the
tape down using another glue dot. Wrap tape in sections around letter until you are happy with the arrangement.
Note: Templates 15% of Actual Size. We used Sew Easy Embroidery Hoops to make these spooky decorations.
