DIY Embroidery Hoops

I am in love with using Embroidery hoops as home decor. I first saw it a few months back here and have also seen it here.  They are everywhere if you just google them or look them up on Etsy.com. All you need is an embroidery hoop (found at most craft or fabric stores)for around $1, fabric, and anything else you want to jazz up your hoop!



I used some excess fabric from when I recovered my dining room chairs. This is was a simple hoop where I just used some fabric and that was it.



I have realized that I tend to have a very simple style. I like clean edges and matching things. I try to venture out but that doesn't happen to often. My mom and sisters laughed at me a while back when I pointed out a sweater that I said was 'out there'. It was not 'out there'. It was floral. I had to laugh at myself, too. I am kinda plain jane. I'm okay with that.

Anyways--here are some photos of my embroidery hoops. not nearly as fancy as some I've seen. Fairly simple and quick.



This next one is something I made for a some friends of mine who are getting married in June. I'm not a huge fan of how it turned out so I am going to be working on something different. The bride-to-be might see it on here but no worries, you'll be getting something different Krissy!:)



I hope this inspires you to hang some cute embroidery hoops in your place for some fun decor!

Thanks for following!
