Hello, Samantha joining you today. I love creating home décor pieces with pretty paper, because it gets the paper out of my scrapbooks and up on my wall. Today, I have an embroidery hoop welcome sign created with Wildflower that helps me get some of that gorgeous paper out where I can see it more often!
I started with a 10” wood embroidery hoop that I whitewashed with a little white paint. Painting it made it pop a little more against the dark paper I chose and my front door.
Then, I filled the hoop with a piece of Wildflower Sketchbook. I chose this piece for the dark background and bold all over pattern. To fit paper into the embroidery hoop, just cut the paper in a circle about ½ inch larger than the hoop itself. Then, if you want to save yourself a little struggling, recruit someone to lend you an extra pair of hands to get all tucked into the hoop.
Next, I created my little mini banners using the Banner Punch Board. Did you know that you can create little banners with the banner punch board, too? It’s just as easy as doing large ones! To create my small banners, I cut my strip of Wildflower Travel Journal paper to the width I wanted, but left my paper one long strip.
After cutting the banner end with the punch board, I put the long strip in my paper trimmer and cut the banner to the proper length. Then, that same strip of Wildflower Travel Journal paper can go right back in the Banner Punch Board for the next banner piece.
To give the welcome sign some dimension, I attached the welcome banner to the sign with Sticky Thumb Foam Dimensional Adhesive.
Finally, I added some flower and butterfly embellishments from the Wildflower Die Cut Shapes and the Wildflower Cardstock Stickers.
This is the first time that I’ve used an embroidery hoop to frame a home décor piece, but I’m certain it won’t be the last! What’s your favorite way to put pretty papers and embellishments on display at your house?
