Step 1: Gather Your Materials
An oversized embroidery ring
A scrapbook paper or wrapping paper
Polypropilene plastic that looks like frosted. It´s the same plastic used for the covers of spiral binding.
Step 2: Cut
Cut the scrapbook paper, mine already has a cute wreath that I cut.
But you can cut a heart, flower, scallops, whatever you want.
Step 3: Write
Write a letter or a quote with the gold marker.
Step 4: Trace and Cut
Trace the outline of the ring in the plastic, and cut it out.
Step 5: Paint and Glue
Before sticking the lights, paint the outer side of the ring with gold paint.
Use the glue gun to glue the string lights all around the ring. Try to space them evenly.
Step 6: Glue
Glue the plastic on top of the ring, then glue the scrapbook paper.
Step 7: Hang It Up
The emboridery ring is light and will be easy to hang up.
My string lights are battery operated, I´m using rechargable batteries and the box of batteries is well hidden behind the paper. So you don´t have to worry with weird wires that will ruin your perfect wall.
