Assembling the Project:

  1. Working with the top scallop, place the bee hive to the right of center, 3/4" from the bottom scallop. Use one strand of gold floss, and whipstitch the edges.
  2. Add the bee hive hole to the center of the hive, and whipstitch with gold floss.
  3. Center the heart over the hole, and stitch with red floss, using a large X.
  4. Layout the stems, leaves and flowers in a pleasing manner around the bee hive, keeping 3/4" from the edge. Use glue baste to hold in place.
  5. Using bright green floss, overcast the stems. Use a whipstitch to anchor the flower base to the flower, and make a running stitch through the center of each leaf.
  6. Use gold floss to whipstitch the lily flowers. Make a large X in each center of the daisy flowers. The flowers are loose.
  7. Use a small red X stitch to anchor the centers to the small flowers. The flowers are loose.
  8. Put the front and back scallop pieces together, aligning the scallops so they match.
  9. With two strands of gold floss and a running stitch, sew the front to the back, just above the scalloped edge, continuing around the piece in a circular fashion.
  10. Fold the hanger in half, overlapping the ends. Anchor the ends to the middle of the back piece, 3/4" from the scalloped edge. Don’t stitch through to the front. Hide the knots inside.
  11. Press carefully, and hang on a doorknob or peg.
