    For my home d├ęcor project, I decided to do a fabric wall wreath.  I started with an embroidery hoop as the base.  I used the banner and the fireworks files from the 4th of July set in Lisa’s store.  For the banner, I used DCVW “Jupiter Stars on Cream” and Paper Pizazz “Patriotic Stripe” paper and DCVW “The Heirloom Stack.”  I used adhesive script Alpha stickers to create my wreath sentiment, and adhered the banner pieces to Hemp Twine.  I hot glued the twine to the embroidery hoop.  I then took strips of canvas, tulle, grosgrain and satin ribbon, and coordinating fabric and tied them in double knots, alternating materials around the wreath.  I trimmed them longer strips down, for a more uniform look.  I then embellished around the sentiment with rosettes cut from Tim Holtz rosettes dies, and the stars from the July 4th set.  I hope you have enjoyed my project. 
       Hope you enjoyed the parade today for the 4th of July and we planned this early enough that you can get your own set of files to have your own home decor item! Lisa is offering to two (2) lucky winners that comment on each stop along the way of the blog one free file from her store!!!! Be sure to stop at each blog addie and remark!!!

        Until next time,
        Happy Crafting~
