Long time readers will know this partnership with The New Jersey Lottery is not a new one for me! This is my fourth year sharing their cute holiday themed tickets as they make the perfect stocking stuffer, small gift or the perfect pieces to create a bigger gift for the 18+ aged friends and family in your life!
This year New Jersey Lottery is introducing 4 new Holiday Scratch-Offs ($1, $2, $5 Happy Holidays, and $10 $1,00,000 Spectacular) that are easy to grab at your local retailers, like 7-11 or Wawa. These games are fun in the moment and, of course, have the potential for a large cash payout!
I love the idea of a gift container that can be used after it helps transport the gift and thought this fun embroidery hoop pocket weather would be the perfect fit!
- 10” Embroidery Hoop
- Acrylic Paint
- Piece of red felt or fabric (at least 12” x 12”)
- Piece of patterned fabric (at least 12” x 14”)
- Decorative holiday picks
- Iron on vinyl
- Happy Holidays SVG cut file (available free here!)
- New Jersey Lottery Holiday Games
First, paint your embroidery hoop for a pop of color. This paint color is called Santa red and couldn’t be more appropriate for this fun holiday gift!
Cut out your “Happy Holidays” phrase from iron on vinyl. I used my Cricut machine, but the SVG cut file is available to you free if you have a different machine type.
Fold your piece of patterned fabric in half and use an iron or heat press to apply the iron on vinyl phrase towards the top of the fold.
Once the hoop is dry, lay the inner hoop down on your table and your red fabric piece on top. Lay the patterned fabric halfway on top, as shown, with the fold at the top.
Place the top hoop over the fabric pieces and twist the screw to secure tight. You should now have a fabric pocket in the hoop.
Trim the fabric around the hoop and use hot glue to secure it in back.
Glue fabric trim along top edge of the pocket, decorative holiday pick pieces inside the pocket, and ribbon as hanger at the top.
Your embroidery hoop pocket wreath is complete! Fill the pocket with your assortment of New Jersey Holiday Games for tons of fun! They’re available in several different denominations so you can create the perfect holiday gift in different amounts!
This embellished container can easily be used as holiday home decor after it’s gifting purpose! This embroidery hoop pocket wreath would make a great gift for a friend who loves to decorate their home with the holiday spirit!
Create it as a white elephant gift, especially if it’s at a party where they feel the wrapped package. The round shape may throw them off, but the recipient will be so excited to see it full of fun scratch-offs inside!
No matter who gets this fun holiday gift, make sure to remind them about the Million Dollar Replay!
