Today I'm back with another DIY project using some of the Hazel & Ruby products. This time I created a hoop ring that can been hung on your wall as a decor item.
To create this project you'll need a piece of white canvas that will fit into your hoop ring (I used a 6 in one, I believe), the Child's Play stencil by Hazel & Ruby, white wool felt, yellow fabric, turquoise embroidery thread, yellow mist (mine is by Hero Arts) and an orange button.
I started my process by placing my canvas inside my hoop ring and placing down my "sunshine" stencil so I knew how I wanted the end result to look. You will have to bend the stencil a little to create the curved look. Then, I removed the canvas from the ring and sprayed it with my yellow mist. I tried to concentrate the mist solely over the words so that it would be lighter towards the top of the canvas. After you let that dry you can place it back into your hoop ring and set it aside.
Moving onto the sun, I used the sun stencil from the sheet and placed that onto my yellow fabric. I traced it and then cut it out (Prior to tracing and cutting I added fusible web to the back of my fabric to make it more sturdy). After that I cut out three clouds from white wool felt and added stitches to them using turquoise thread. I laid out all of my pieces onto my ring and adhered them using Studio Multi-Medium Matte (you could also use a heat tool). Lastly, I threaded an orange button and adhered that to the sun using the multi-medium as well.
This really is a quick and easy DIY project that can be made for yourself or even as a gift. I love the final result and am intrigued to see how else I can use those stencils.
All of these stencils will be available for pre-order at the store. Want to see this and other samples in person? Check out the details for our upcoming Preview Party here.
