Welcome to the Sticky Sticks Blog Hop hosted by the Designer Craft Connection. If you are hopping through the projects you've probably seen some really inspiring ideas for Halloween or other special occasions using Sticky Sitcks! Thanks for allowing me to share my idea for Halloween Drink Stirrers that morph into brooches.
Materials and Tools for Halloween Drink Stirrers:
Fabric and black wool felt scraps
Buttons Galore and More Buttons (flat backed)
Laser Cut Wood Bird Shapes
Black acrylic paint
Inkjet fabric sheets
Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac
Tracing pencil (white), fabric marking pen, sewing machine and thread, hand sewing needle, paintbrushes, computer and printer, scalloped edged scissors
To create your own Halloween Drink Stirrers, use a circle and square template and the fabric marker to trace shapes measuring approximately 2 1/2" to the wrong side of the fabric. Cut out the shapes with scissors.
Trace 3" shapes onto the black wool felt with the white tracing pencil. Cut the circles and squares out with the smooth edged or scalloped edged scissors. You will need two of each shape for each Halloween Drink Stirrer you want to make.
So I adhere my second wool felt shape to the stick and pin the embellished shape to that shape.
