Embroidery Hoop DIY Projects You’ll Love

Incredible Embroidery Hoop DIY ProjectsAn embroidery hoop has a simple beauty to it. It brings up warm feelings of quilting bees and sewing circles. Makes you think of quiet time sitting and working on beautiful works of hand stitched artistry. Classic. Ironically, I can’t embroider one stitch, but I sure do love the hoops! On my “things to sit down and learn” list is embroidery. I love this video that helps make it seem do-able. Here are some of my favorite fun, funky and functional things that can also be done with embroidery hoops– that don’t necessarily involve embroidery!


 I can only imagine how wonderful this herb wreath smells. This project uses 3 different sized hoops and 3 types of herbs.

Wall Art

This gorgeous wall hanging is rustic and elegantly soft at the same time. Doilies, lace, pompom trim, ribbons and fabric strips. To make one, hot glue a series of hoops together and hang from a branch. Lovely!
