Halloween Door Hanger Craft

A cute Halloween door decoration.  Little to no sewing necessary!  This adorable craft comes from Nap Tim e Crafters:

 **If sewing is not your thing - no problem just cut out the letters from felt or another contrasting fabric and use fabric glue to glue into place.

Spooky Door Hanger

Here's what you'll need:
  • 3 8" embroidery hoops
  • 3 9" fabric scraps
  • Fabric scraps for embellishing
  • Craft Paint
  • Hot Glue Gun

 1. Paint the outside ring of each embroidery hoop- don't worry about the inside one b/c it won't show
 2. I did reverse applique for my letters and it was actually much easier than I thought it would be! Pin your fabric scrap wrong side up to the wrong side of your 9" fabric piece. Trace your letters onto the wrong side of your fabric scrap (make sure it's backwards) and then stitch around it, sewing through both layers of fabric 
 3. Trim the excess fabric away from the front side making sure you only cut through the top layer of fabric. 
 4. Put each fabric piece inside the embroidery hoop and hot glue the fabric edges to the back
 5. Arrange your embroidery hoops and hot glue together
 6. Hot glue a safety pin to the back of the top 2 to use for hanging. 
7. Thread your ribbon through and enjoy!
