Thursday night 45 ladies gathered in fellowship hall to relax, laugh, talk, eat, and make a door hangar. Everyone chose their color in advance, either lime green or red. As each of us walked in the door, we were given 1/2 yd. of a piece of 60 inch wide burlap. Then we went to a table where we chose the pattern we wanted to make, either a cross or an ornament.

 Step 1 - Trace the pattern with a pen onto our doubled piece of burlap.

Step 2 - Cut out the design.

Steps 3, 4, 5 -  Staple along all the edges but one, then stuff the burlap with grocery bags, and then staple that last edge.

Step 6 - Paint the burlap however we wanted.

Of course, some people had a little trouble with their spelling.

And a few of the ladies were kind enough to make bows...and more bows...and more bows for the less crafty ones of us. (The bows took 5 ft. of ribbon and a piece of floral wire to hold them tight.)

The final step was to attach a piece of 16 gauge wire through the burlap to serve as a hangar. Not one bit of sewing required to make a beautiful Christmas door hangar!

I think they all turned out really nice!
