Giant Embroidery Hoop “Wreath”

Posted by on Jul 30, 2012 in art, Daisy's room, fabric, thrift store, wreaths | 18 comments

Ok, so the laundry is not totally finished. . . over half way.

The yard has not yet been mowed.

The flower beds in the front yard have been taken care of.

The family has been fed.

(Thanks to a favorite chef of mine – Chef Boy Ar Dee!)

I have gotten my calendar in order.

One volleyball practice and two orthodontist appointments today.

I have been to all of my favorite thrift stores!

We have fun plans as a family tonight.

Summer is not over yet!

Here is the project of the day for Daisy’s room.

One of my favorite thrift stores turned up this beauty today for $1.99.

I took off all of this fabric and was left with a clean hoop.

I added some old white fabric that I already had.

I pulled it tight.

Trimmed the edges.

And, hot glued it down.

This actually used to be a bedspread.

When we were is New York, we went over to New Jersey to Carlos Bake Shop.

(Are you familiar with the Cake Boss – It is one of my children’s favorite shows!)

They wrapped our boxes of baked goods with this precious twine.

I knew it would come in handy for a project!

(Yes, we bought 2 large boxes of baked goods, so I still have over half left!)

I cut 2 pendant patterns out of paper.

I cut out several large and several small.

I hot glued the twine to the hoop at each of the ends.

And, hot glued the pendants onto the twine.

(I did not even burn my fingers!)

I used fabric that I had left over from another project for her room.

It uses almost no fabric.

A great project for tiny scraps!

I tied little bows on the ends.

It is staying in her theme of “vintage cute.”

For now I will have to photograph it outside.

Her room is in complete shambles now!

We are not sure where we are going to hang it.

Maybe on her door?

Life to the full to you!

  1. What a cute idea – so bright and happy! Embroidery hoops must be really popular right now. My daughter has a project in mind, but every time she tries to find some hoops, the stores are all out!

  2. Cute idea!

  3. This is great! I love the simplicity of it (I heart simple projects!) I got a few hoops from a rummage sale and only have ideas for three of them. This idea will go in my memory banks (aka pinterest.) Thanks for sharing!

  4. That is so cute. I actually gave away some hoops. Sigh.

  5. This is gorgeous! Did you make it for a babies room? I think embroidery hoops are such a fun/different way to decorate! I never thought to get them at a thrift store.. it makes perfect sense because they are a fraction of the price! Thanks for the great tip! I am your newest follower! if you ever have a chance come check out mine!


  6. Stopping by from WGW at Someday crafts, newest follower. LOVE this, would look great in my babies room!!

  7. Saw your post on the 36th Avenue link party. I love this. I am working on a hoop wall for my sewing room and this would make such a cute addition.

  8. This is darling! I have a bunch of scrap fabric left from my daughter’s room and now I think I know what to do with it 🙂

  9. I adore this! so clever..

  10. This is adorable–perfect with those other hoops of fabric! Great score from the thrift store–and I love the chenille fabric you used for the background!

  11. I love your hoop craft! The white with all the colorful patterned pendants against it looks so adorable. Such a beautiful piece that you came up with. Visiting from My Repurposed Life link party. ~ Jamie

  12. Did I read you right, project of the day? Aren’t we Ms. Organized! I love this, so very pretty! I have so many hoops and will be doing this!

  13. That turned out so precious! I have several old hoops laying around…I might make one of these tomorrow!

  14. hoops are readily available at a lot of thrift stores it seems. We always did needle work back in the day… but not so much anymore.

    very pretty!


  15. Thanks so much for sharing this creative project on Simple & Sweet Fridays! It turned out lovely.


  16. Too cute! I would love to do this in my craft room. Thanks for the inspiration.

  17. So cute! I love pendants. Thanks so much for linking up on Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust. {Sorry I’m running late, I’ve been on vacation.}

    Warmly, Michelle

  18. That is a pleasure to read your article and finally clarify the issue myself.
