and then you add a few simple embellishments and some Joy Iron On Embroidered Letters?

- Joy Iron On Embroidered Letters in Orange and Gold
- 3 1/2″ x 5″ Oval Wooden Embroidery Hoop*
- Old Plaid Fall Shirt
- Beacon Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive*
- Ribbon and Trim
- Acorn Embellishment
- Lay the embroidery hoop onto the fabric first and then place the letters inside the hoop to help you figure the best placement.
- Set Iron to cotton setting, approx. 350 degrees, or follow garment care label.
- Position letters with shiny side down onto fabric.
- Cover letters with a fine cloth. With a firm pressure, iron cloth over letters for 30 seconds.
- Turn fabric over and iron the back for another 30 seconds.
- Loosen the screw on the top of the embroidery hoop and insert fabric making sure to keep the letter alignment straight. (re-tighten screw)
- Trim excess fabric from outside of embroidery hoop.
- Glue the green braided trim around the outside of the embroidery hoop.
- Tie ribbon and leaves to the top of the frame.
- Glue small acorn embellishment onto ribbon.
- Super cute and simple to make.
