  • Felt Craft Sheets - Bright Green, Black, Silver (approx 9"/22cm wide)

  2. Cut the green and black felt into approximately 9"/22cm long strips, some thin and some thick. For a 4"/10cm hoop you will need around 50 strips of green and 25 strips of black.

  3. Using the 9, 12, and 3 o'clock positions, start tying the strips of black felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Push the strips together to bunch them together to create Frankenstein's hair.

  4. Then using the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions, tie the green felt strip around the hoop with double knots, pushing together as before. The more felt scrap strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.

  5. Flip the hoop to the back. Take one black scrap strip and attach it horizontally across the hoop with a glue gun and glue sticks. Flip to the front and glue two wiggle eyes to the front of that black scrap strip. Cut a small, skinny rectangle from black felt and glue it to the top of the wiggle eyes as Frankenstein’s eyebrow.

  6. Wrap two silver tinsel chenille stems around a pencil then slide off to reveal two coils. Cut two small rectangles of silver felt and attach one to the end of both coils to create Frankenstein’s bolts. Flip the hoop over and attach it to the bottom right and left with a glue gun and glue sticks.

  7. Position one of the green felt scraps flat at the side near the hairline. Draw a scar on that green felt scrap with a permanent black marker.

  8. Create a hanging loop with ribbon or twine if desired, then hang (or place) where desired. Happy Halloween!
