Patriotic Hoop Art

Happy 4th of July to everyone!  I hope that everyone is having a great time celebrating the birth of our country!  To help celebrate and decorate for the 4th, I made these Patriotic Hoops!  

Materials needed:

  • 9” x 12” craft cut of Kunin Classicfelt™ Royal Blue, Red, and White
  • 8 inch Embroidery Hoops
  • Felt Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Sizzix/Ellison Die Cutting Machine and Cutting Pads
  • Laura Kelly’s Lemonade Capital Alphabet Die
  • Cutting Mat, Rotary Cutter, Ruler
  • Star Stickers

How to Make it:

  1.  Take the embroidery hoop apart, place a sheet of felt in the hoop and replace the top hoop.
  2. Cut the excess felt from the back.  
  3. Cut strips of felt (1″x12″ for the USA Stars and Stripes and .25″x12″ for the God Bless The USA hoop).
  4. Glue the strips to the back of the hoop and cut the excess from the top.
  5. For the stars on the USA hoop, I used stickers as patterns.  I placed the stickers on the white felt and then cut around them.
  6. Using the Sizzix/Ellison Die Cutting Machine, the cutting pads and the alphabet die, I cut all of the letters needed.
  7. Glue the letters down using felt glue.

I hope you like these Patriotic Hoop Art pieces!  They are so festive and are perfect for the 4th of July!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!

Until next time….

It’s Craft Lightning time again and this one is Patriotic Crafts!  This Freedom Felt Banner was super easy and took barely anytime to make!   And I love a cute seasonal banner!
Materials:


How to make it:

  1.  Using the die cutting machine, cutting pads and dies, cut out each of your pieces!  I cut seven bookmarks, seven badges and the letters to spell Freedom.  I used the rectangular badge because I thought it looked like a burst from a firework!
  2. Assemble your pieces so that you know where your want to glue them!  
  3. Glue your pieces and buttons to the bookmark.
  4. Let dry!
  5. Using twine and small clothespins, hang them up to create a patriotic felt banner! Easy Peasy!!!   Now I have a banner for Memorial Day as well as the 4th of July!  Hope you like this Craft Lightning project!   Be sure to click the photo below and check out other Patriotic Craft Lightning projects!
