Hoop-la!

Ever since I saw gallery walls put together with fabric covered embroidery hoops, I’ve been in love!
And I’ve been racking my brain about where to put them!  I mean how easy would they be to make?!
All you need are some hoops, some fabulous fabric, and art is born!  Love!
Let’s take a little look at some amazing galleries!

Lovely!!
Pretty, pretty, pretty!
So in enter my desire to make a fabric covered embroidery hoop!
While out at the fabric store one day with my little brood, my daughter found the prettiest yellow fabric!
I had to buy it, and I knew just what I was going to do with a little piece of it!
Make my very own hoop!
  • I bought a wooden embroidery hoop from Michaels
  • And because I like to spray paint, I sprayed it Antique White to match everything else I’ve got goin’ on in my home!
  • Then when it was all dry, I covered the hoop with the fabric.  Just make sure to pull the fabric tight, but not too tight, as you don’t want the fabric to become warped.
  • Hang!

So easy.  So pretty.  Love!
Stay tuned to see where I’ve put it!

  1. I’ve also never seen this before…but I love it! The one with the hoops above the crib made me think of planets…I may have to find some marbled and tye-dyed fabrics to make the different planets if we ever make the space-themed nursery my husband wants. 🙂

  2. I have just recently done up my craft room and seen these when looking for some inspiration so I have bought some fabric, Amy Butler of course and hoops and will be doing the same as you, spray paint hehe and then I can’t wait to hang them around, LOVE yours super CUTE!

  3. They are so amazing and yours looks gorgeous! I just wish that I could find a way to get those hoops at a better price. They are so expensive brand new over here in Australia!

    Thanks for the tips too.

    Best wishes,

  5. I came for SRC….the brownies look amazing, but I am leaving with huge inspiration to do this on mybedroom wall! What a gorgeous amazing idea!

  6. I love it! I had picked up a few hoops at a garage sale earlier this summer with plans on doing this! I love all the pictures you included in your post… I’ll have to pin a few : )

  7. Hi

    Love this!! What do you do with any extra fabric in the back of the hoop? Your hoops don’t show any excess when hung on the wall.
