Altered a large embroidery hoop. Painted the hoop with white gesso first. Then placed some thick pale blue card under the hoop and with a pencil lightly circled the outer edge of the hoop. Next I cut around the circle I'd drawn with scissors. Using a stencil from Polkadoodles to creat some snowflakes on the blue cards. I then fussy cut emphemra from a digital collection by Crate Paper and die cut some foliage and snowflakes using a variety of dies. I glued the foliage around the edges of the hoop and then stuchk down the ephemra and some wooden snowflakes onto the background card. On the frame itself I glued some pom pom trim to the edges and some mini tinsel. I glued a red ribbon to hang the hoop and finished it with a gold bow.
