Embroidery Hoops

Our guestroom/office is currently the "stash-all" room in our apartment. I'm hoping to spruce it up this summer and transform it to be a functional, comfortable space for both a guest to stay and for Andrew to use as his study/work space. The room is small, but I find inspiration in the photo above. I love the embroidery hoops! I did a little DIY hoop project (seen below) that currently decorates a little wall in our hall for now. However, I'm hoping to use them in the guestroom/office makeover this summer.
Embroidery hoops + fabric make great wall decor! I used left over fabric & bought hoops from Michaels.

Cut fabric into the size of the hoop and simply place it between the wooden hoops & tighten. So easy!
Inspiration from pinterest of course. Check out all of the ways the folks used embroidery hoops. So cute!

Is your mind swirling with ideas yet? .....Mine is!


  1. Beautiful! I really like the top inspiration, your little hallway hoops, and the photo with the baby.

  2. I LOVE the embroidery hoop idea! I was actually looking for some wall art for my daughter's room! Maybe this would be a great (inexpensive) idea!

  3. These are GREAT!!! There are so many things you can do with a embroidery hoop , who knew!?

    so when you cut the fabric to go into the hoop, does it hang over on the backside at all?

    1. I know right!? After I placed the fabric in the hoop, I took scissors around the edges and cut off stray pieces. I found that the leftover hanging fabric did not appropriately hide behind the hoop- so I cut it all off!


Leave me some love!
