Altered Embroidery Hoop

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos.
Today I bring you an altered Embroidery Hoop that is all about boys!
I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw that adorable
 racoon rub-on and the glitter pine tree paper.
~ My Boy ~
Before beginning the project loosen the screw and separate the center hoop from the outer hoop.
Step 1: Cut circle for base paper that will fit center hoop exactly, and ink the edges.
Also ink the edges of outer hoop and leave to dry.
  Step 2: Add Rub On's and a partial circle of paper in a contrasting color.
 Step 3: Glue circle to center hoop. 
Add a ring of hot glue on the inside to strengthen bond.
 Step 4: Assemble Charms
For mine I used a bicycle, a circle of paper with a rub-on and dew drop, and a clippie with three dew drops. I strung them with twine and draped the twine over the tightening screw.
Step 5: Reassemble hoops, add dew drops to outer hoop.
These paper collections meld seamlessly and are perfect for any forest adventure theme!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to scour your local thrift store for embroidery hoops. 
These decorative wall hangings look amazing in sets of three!!!
