Therm O Web Supplies:

Instructions:
Begin by first painting and distressing the craft wood frame.  Set aside to dry.

Cut a piece of fabric that fits the background chipboard of the frame.  Set this aside.

Next trace or draw the 3 ovals or circles (or a mix) on to the paper side of the HeatnBond® Lite.  These will form the body of the pumpkin.  Also trace shapes for leaves and the stem.

Iron on another piece of HeatnBond® Adhesive to the background fabric, remove the paper and iron the front to adhere the appliquéd piece to the chipboard.
