Small Embroidery Hoop

Start with the inner ring of the smaller embroidery hoop.

R1. DC 84 around embroidery hoop

R2. CH3, 2TR in each strand around

R3-6 CH3 (working in CH SP around) 2TR  1CH around

Fasten off, leaving a long tail to attach to the inner ring of the larger embroidery hoop.

Lay the small hoop inside the large hoop & start to attach the tail from R6 to the larger loop.

Large Outer Hoop

Using all the colours that you used to make the stars, divide the larger, outer hoop in to 12 sections & start to wrap with the yarn & glue as you go (I used a hot glue gun for this).

Stars

Start to position your stars.

Attach the five stars with a CH ST, so they can hang below the wreath.

Green CH25         

Mustard & light blue CH20

Orange & lilac CH15

Glue the remaining stars to the wreath & fix the larger outer ring that you wrapped with yarn, tighten until secure.

Words

Now its time to stitch the words.

You will need to do this using a chain stitch with a needle, I used Knitcraft Hey baby, coral for the lettering.
