fabric embroidery hoops

Category: DIY | December 19th, 2011


talk about one of the easiest/fastest and not to mention cheapest home decor ever! in love. (now i am no expert at this…plus it was my first time, but this is how i did mine) :)


all you need are some embroidery hoops, glue, and scraps of fabric you already have laying around. i was able to use some vintage fabric from the mister’s grandma’s stash that was given to me. :)

lay the fabric, right side up, on top of the inside hoop and then put the top hoop over the inside one….pulling tight the fabric.



you will want about a half inch or so of fabric to hang out so you can glue it down….and then trim and then done! now just throw a nail in the wall and yay!







(like the smudged baby finger prints i didn’t clean off before i took pics…eh oh well) :)

you can get creative and paint on the fabric or even do some stitching. i wanted to keep it simple and enjoy the fabric. i love the new additions. the mister hasn’t called it too girly yet so we’re doing good!

notes: embroidery hoops/hobby lobby, fabric/vintage, coat hanger/urban outfitters, chalkboard/event design shop, mirror/thrifted.

    AHH I LOVE IT!!! When I was preggo (and hence obsessively researching nursery ideas), the one I loved most had these embroidery hoops with fabric in them covering most of an entire wall. Of course, then I realized that we wouldn’t actually have a nursery, being as it’s NYC and anything over a 1-bedroom is ridiculously expensive, but still. Love.
