Embroidery Hoop Pin Board

Posted by on Jun 24, 2013 in art, burlap, crafts, Daisy's room | 10 comments

I have a confession to make.

You are going to be shocked at what I am about to tell you.

Well, maybe not shocked. . .

. . . just, mildly disappointed.

I take pictures for my blog almost daily.

But. . .

. . . I rarely have my camera with me to take pictures of special memories of my kiddos.

I am ashamed.

I just forget to have the camera with me?!

So, a few years back,

I bought each one of my daughters their very own digital camera.

I had their names engraved on the front.

 I bought cute little camera cases that would attach to their belt loops.

I was really trying to give them ownership of this.

Then, I gave them the assignment to photograph their own special memories.

Unfortunately, they seem to forget their cameras most of the time as well. . .

Like mother, like daughter.

Until recently,

 Daisy has taken on the challenge,

and has come up with some super cute pictures.

(Having her I-phone has helped.)

She loves to use Instagram.

And, she just figured out how to print the pictures off.

Now, we are trying to find a home for all of these pictures.

How to Display Instagram Pictures @ DaisyMaeBelle

Add ribbon and use push pins to attach your Instagram photo.

Embroidery Hoop for Pictures @ DaisyMaeBelle

The Instagram pictures work great with these circle frames,

because the pictures print as squares.

Rectangular pictures wouldn’t fit as well.

Embroidery Hoop Art @ DaisyMaeBelle

Add them to a collection of framed fabrics.

These can be changed out so easily.

Making this an ever changing display.

See what I mean?

Aren’t her pictures so cute?

Maybe I have created future photographers by my own lack of picture taking :)

So, maybe this was a brilliant parenting move on my part?

Time will tell. . .

Life to the full!

  1. Great idea. I never had my camera with me either until I started blogging. You know- I left a comment yesterday on the post below this one and I don’t see that it posted- weird! xo Diana

  2. I love how your idea mixes something old/vintage feeling with something so new and modern like instagram photos! Very creative solution!

  3. Thanks for the DIy on this because I love it!

  4. This is so cute. Pinning for the future! Daisy is so lucky to have such a fantastic room. Hope you’re enjoying your summer!

  5. I’ve been seeing so many cute ideas with embroidery hoops lately that I think I need to get some! :) I forget my camera all the time too, and end up just using the one on my phone. I have a folder for “print worthy” pics on my phone. Anytime I take a pic I want to get printed, it goes into that folder, and as soon as I get 50 or so in there, I print them all with my Walgreens photo app. Gotta love technology these days. :) Her pictures sure are cute! I think you definitely have a future photographer on your hands. :)

  6. Love the hoop frames. As for my camera, it has pet photos and project photos. I am bad about deleting special event photos.

  7. Well, that is just stinkin’ cute! What a clever idea, and wouldn’t be that hard to update. Love it!

  8. What a super cute way to display photos!

  9. Oh I love your embroidery hoop frames, they are so cute and so colorful. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  10. I’m with you on forgetting to take pictures of the kids. I wish I remembered to take the camera and have someone ELSE take the pictures since I’m always the one behind it ;)
    I love this idea for an embroidery hoop! I hope you’ll come share this at my link party, On Display Monday. It’s so-hosted by several blogs, so it’s that’s much more exposure for you!
