12 Crafty Days of Christmas {Day 5}: Burlap Embroidery Hoop Wreath

Welcome to {Day 5} of the 12 Crafty Days of Christmas here at Happily Mother After!

Happily Mother After

If you missed any of the previous crafts, you can catch up with the rest of us 
by taking a look {over here}.

Today, I am beyond excited {more like giddy} to introduce you to one of my newest obsessions.  I recently came across Lolly Jane Boutique and fell in love. {They had me at their header!}  There is just not enough time in the day to rummage through all the goodness that dwells on their site!

After finding one cute DIY craft after another on their blog, I decided to ask them to guest post here for all of my readers to discover their awesomeness.  And {to my shocking surprise} they said YES!

I booked them for today, on my birthday. Consider this my birthday present to all of you, my loyals! :)

So without further Adieu, I give you Lolly Jane!....

Hello there HMA readers!
We are so excited to be part of the cheery series 12 Crafty Days of Christmas here on Lauren's cute site and to show off our burlap embroidery hoop wreath for the upcoming green & red holiday:
It was so fun to make!

But first we'd like to introduce ourselves... 
we are twin sisters Kelli & Kristi of Lolly Jane, a craft blog filled with DIY's, furniture revamps, home improvement tips and a yummy recipe or two.  Feel free to stop by anytime!

Now back to the project ;)
To create your own, follow along:

 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... 
... that's it!

Such a fun craft for the front door or to mix in with your holiday decor throughout the house or on the mantel.  

A big thanks to Lauren for letting us guest today!
We wish you all a very cheery Christmas season and would love for you to stop by our FB page, tweet with us or check out our Pinterest boards :)

XOXO
