Could there possibly be a more perfect movie for this years Halloween viewing pleasure than the new “Ghostbusters”?? I was so excited when I saw the first previews come out earlier this year, and one of my BFF’s and I made plans to see it opening night! To celebrate the new Ghostbusters release AND Halloween being just a week away, I’ve been Boo-ing the neighborhood! After all, I’m pretty much Just Here for the Boos! 😉
I knew exactly what I wanted to create for out next door neighbor. She’s always admired some of my hoop art, and LOVE halloween… so badda-boom-badda-bing! This Just Here for the Boos hoop art was born!
And whips up super quick!
What you’ll need to make your own “Just Here for the Boos” hoop art:
8 inch embroidery hoop
10 inch square of Black fabric ( I used flannel)
white and black embroidery floss
fabric pen/pencil for adding your text pattern
Step #1 Using your fabric pen, add your text “Just here for the Boos” to your fabric.
Step #2 Add your fabric to the embroidery hoop, and center it towards the bottom.
Step #3 Using the scissors, cut 3 ghost shapes out of the white felt and stitch in place with the white embroidery floss. Add faces with the black embroidery floss.
Step #4 Use the white floss to stitch your words.
Step #5 Finish off your hoop by sealing the fabric in the back.
Now back to Boo-ing the neighbors… You’ll need lots of candy, a card or printable so they know whats going on, a stick to display your hoop art on until they can hang it, and your own copy of Ghostbusters! Adding in some popcorn wouldn’t be a bad idea either!
You can bet your Halloween candy, that I’d be THRILLED to find a package like this on my porch! Its just as much fun, if not even MORE fun to be the giver! I totally rang the door bell, and then ran away and hid so I could see her expression 🙂
Have you “Boo’d” your neighbors yet?
