You will need:
- A white poster board - I bought mine at Dollar Tree
- A glue gun and glue sticks
- Your object to make your circle - one for the outside and one for the inside circle.
- Your lace, buttonholing, ribbon or rick rack.
- Your embellishment - beads, flowers, charms
- a 6 inch piece of gold cord, twine or string to make a hanging loop for it
First I made some circles on a white poster board using a glass and a small circle punch. You can honestly make these as large or small as you like depending on the project you are using them for. (As I am writing this I am imagining much larger ones for decorating windows, cabinet doors, backs of chairs - whatever you can think of.)
The next step is to start gluing the buttonholing or your trim choice onto the poster board circle using hot glue.
I started on the edge of the circle and then just continued going around the circle keeping the flat edges touching as I went around. This created a layered full look.
When I reached the center. I just cut the buttonholing, folded back a little edge and glued it down to make a nice neat ending.
I then glued little gold beads around it - you can use any color or style of bead or embellishment you like. And then used some gold thread to glue a loop onto the back to hang it with.
That's all there is to this little project. So simple and quick. I was able to make several one evening while watching TV. My kind of project. And so adaptable to your own decor by changing out the type of trim and/or the embellishment you use.
