Retro Christmas Holiday Decoration

img_7004The pop of silver from the Deco Foil™ gives is such a fun retro feel!!  This project takes under an hour to make!

img_6969Let’s get started!

Project Supplies:

10″ embroidery hoop

fat quarter for background

Silver Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets

Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Sheets

Pressing Paper

Heat n Bond® Lite Fusible Adhesive

Sizzix ornament die

Sizzix alphabet die

scraps of fabric

1 yard pom pom trim

Hot glue gun


Project Instructions:

img_6973Die cut the letters FALALA out of the Hot Melt sheets. (You can always print our letters and trace them to the hot melt sheets if you don’t have access to a Sizzix machine.)

Fuse the Heat n Bond® lite to the wrong side of the fabric scraps.  Die cut the ornaments.

img_6974Lay the hoop over the fabric to get an idea of where to place everything.  Play around with it until you get it just right! img_6975Peel off the backing paper of the ornaments and heat set in place.  Also heat set the letters in place. img_6977Once the letters have cooled, peel off the paper to leave the adhesive remaining.

Place the silver Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets on top of the letters, topped with a pressing paper.  With the iron on medium to medium-high, heat set for about 15 seconds.  Let cool completely and then carefully remove the deco foil.  It will only stick to the letters!  They come out perfect!img_6978

Sew around each of the ornaments and add an ornament string by sewing a straight stitch.  Center the fabric in the embroidery hoop.img_6981Trim off the excess and hot glue to the hoop.

Hot glue the pom pom trim around the hoop.
