I promised to share this project a few weeks ago, and here it is long at last, the next installment of For the Love of Fabric...Embroidery Hoop Wall Art!
This one (obviously) falls into the no-sew category I that am such a fan of. The only tools required were scissors and a hot glue gun. I used the reminants of a Heather Bailey Pop Garden fat quarter (left over from an art journaling project) and adorn it with felted balls, a handmade felt bloom with a polymer clay handmade button, crocheted flowers, large buttons, brads, a chipboard phrase and a few other random odds and ends, all collected from my stash.
Completing the project was as easy as cutting a cardboard circle to use as backing, stretching the fabric, and layering up the embellishments. I used straight pins to hold mine in place until I was happy with the arrangment and was ready to glue. One-by-one, I pulled the pins and glued each piece in place. Easy as that!
Not only is the project simple, it's also very budget friendly, especially if you use up lots of odds and ends around your studio, like I did. The only item I paid for out-of-pocket was the embroidery hoop for $3. That's not a bad price to pay for a unique and fun wall hanging!
I've always loved these cute noteboards made from embroidery hoops and fabric, and plan on making one with an extra hoop I have laying around. Do you have any fun projects you've made using embroidery hoops? If so, I'd love to see them and/or hear about them!
