Olive Branch Embellished UGGs How-To
1. Download and print olive branch template. Using a permanent marker, trace template onto an iron-off stabilizer.
2. Roll up 1 inch of foam and wrap with rubber bands; stick foam inside boot. Pin stabilizer to boot, felting branch through stabilizer. Begin felting olives. Pull away leftover stabilizer.
3. Place a piece of muslin over design and give it a little steam with iron to relax fibers.
