    1. Cut lime and turquoise felt.  The front section can be cut slightly shorter on one side so back color shows.

    2.  Layer lime and turquoise felt and sew horizontally.  Sew on three sides to create pocket.
    3. Sew a ¼” seam then trim to a scant 1/8”
    4. Cut out dip in top layer if desired when finished.
    5. Match ends of rick-rack then interlock pieces together. Pull to straighten out. Curve into a circle and trim ends as needed. Add a dot of glue under rick-rack ends to hold together. Apply a thin bead of glue in circle shape onto front then press wreath into place, placing ends just slightly off center as shown, poking in sewing pins to hold until dry.
    6. Glue five small red pom poms into place. Tie a bow of red ribbon, trim ends then glue where shown.
    7. Test flow of 3D Fashion Paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Add random White Slick dots.  Keep tip of paint bottle wiped with paper towels for clean lines.  Let dry.
