I wanted to make another bunting for my living room window. I think they are so cute & really add some holiday or seasonal fun. I think peeps are cute and went out searching for a pattern. I found one here. I printed it out but decided to make it a little bigger. So I just penciled in about another 1/4 inch around and it worked great.
I needed to get some felt so I went to Joann and got some.
First, I folded the felt in half and pinned the pattern to it.
I liked it ok but thought it might be a little easier to trace around it , then cut it out.
You can turn them over and you won't even see the black. I cut the rest of them out this way.
Now it's time to add the eyes & nose. I used the eraser on a pencil and dark brown paint. I dipped the eraser in the paint each time I made an eye or nose.
I let the paint dry for and hour or so, before I glued them together. I wanted them to be sturdier so I glued two together.
Next I went to my stash and found a piece of ribbon. I measured the middle and spread the peeps out evenly and glued them down.
I thought it turned out cute but I wanted to add a little somethin' else. A little more color. I have been seeing all the pom-poms around and thought that's it. So I picked out a few bright yarns and went to it. I made the pom-poms the old fashion way of just wrapping the yarn around my fingers. It's quick & easy.
I glued the pom-poms to the ribbon and.............. all done.
I will be hanging it out on my front window for Easter the first part of March. I will have to hang something for St. Pattys too since they both are in March this year.
