Well, I decided to give it a try today and make my own twist on this awesome craft idea!!! I want to share what I came up with! BTW, this project is EXTREMELY EASY! It took me 5 minutes with each one (with my addition)!! All you need for my version is fabric and embroidery hoops, tacky glue, scissors, some sort of embellishment (I used primitive style small wooden signs) + a glue gun! I used the tacky glue for the fabric and the glue gun to put the signs onto the fabric! I used all the steps in Purl Bee’s tutorial so head on over after reading this post and try a few of your own! They look so awesome on my wall!

Here is my finished products (!!!!):
