Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor
This was a fun project I did this weekend! I spelled out my last name but there are many other ways you could use them. Some ideas are to spell out a babies name over their crib or on a child’s bedroom door you could make them for holidays.
I started out wondering through Joann Fabrics to figure out exactly what i wanted and this is what i ended up with:
-Three different sized embroidery hoops
-Different fabric (I had a bunch from my Grandma and I also bought some of the scraps from joann fabrics)
-Twill iron on patches
-Stain or paint
I started out by staining the hoops a darker brown. This is an optional step you can stain them, paint them, or leave them they way they are. I wanted mine to be a little darker so I stained them. You only have to stain the outer part and the outside edges of the outer ring.
This is what they looked like once they were dry:
The next step is to match up the different fabric patches to the different colors of fabric you have. Once that is decided it is time to cut out the pocket patches into the letters you want. I made my own stencil out of paper or you could use a store bought stencil.
Here it is already to be cut out:
Here it is all cut out:
Next I put the fabric in the rings and cut around the edges to make the fabric smaller so I will know where to iron the letters on.
Next I followed the directions on the fabric patches and ironed them onto the fabric. Once that is done they are ready to be placed in the hoops.
I trimmed the fabric a little more then taped it back so the edges wouldn’t show.
With the little hoops I put the fabric in them and taped it back then added decorations like embroidery, buttons, and beads.
I had the perfect little wall to hang these on! I just put thumbtacks in the wall and hang them from them.
