What you need:
- three different size embroidery hoops- I used the wooden ones. They are cheaper!
- Old books
- lamp kit from a hardware store or gut a lamp from the Goodwill
- Hot Glue
- Scissors or something more heavy duty, but I didn't have anything.
- Eye hook for hanging
|Rip off the book cover. Cut one inch stripes from one side through the spine to the other side.|
|I employed a helper for the day! It was a good thing because just the books I cut caused a blister that later turned into a scar. :(|
|I temporarily hung mine from this coat rack to help work with the length. Cut 4 two and a half foot pieces of twine. Tie them to the hoop like so, and join them together up top. Lay the book backings over the embroidery hoop.|
|Cut 4 more strings of twine. These don't need to be as long. Attach the strings to the second hoop and then to the top hoop. I had to play with the length to get it where I wanted it.|
|Cut off your excess twine. Repeat with third hoop. Next, I added a drop of hot glue to each strip to make sure they were secured in place.|
|It gives off just enough ambiance to light the hallway at night!!|
