How To Make Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor Using A Sharpie

home sweet home embroidery hoop wall decor kreativk.net

Happy Monday y’all! I´m so so excited about today´s post and can´t wait to show you how to make embroidery hoop wall decor using a sharpie! For the longest time I´ve been looking for an embroidery hoop here where I live in Spain, but without any luck. I guess embroidery isn´t populare here. Anyways, the universe brought one to me, cause when I went to Goodwill, I found this pretty big hoop for $2!

How To Make Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor Using A Sharpie

There are so many beautiful ideas on Pinterest about what to do with an embroidery hoop and at first, I wanted to make a wreath out of it. I might still do that in the future, when I feel like changing things up. For now I made this Home Sweet Home Wall Decor and I might hang it on my front door as a welcome sign.

 

1.  What I´ve used:

– embroidery hoop like this one

– white fabric or dropcloth [I used a piece of white fabric leftover that used to be a table cloth]

– black sharpie like this one [ a thinner (not too thin!) sharpie works best]

– faux greenery, not shown on the first photo [I bought mine at the dollar store,  these or these are similar and would look great too]

hot glue gun to glue on the greenery [not shown on the first photo]

 

2. Place fabric over the inner ring of the embroidery hoop. Press outer ring down around the inner ring of the hoop and tighten screws. Cut off any excess fabric around the hoop.

3. Prepare your letters or quote. I printed out ¨home sweet home¨ in my favourite fonts. Here you can download it and use it if you like.

4. Stick the printout on the back of the fabric inside the hoop.

5. You can see how the print shines through the fabric, which is great for tracing.

6. Trace the letters with a pencil onto the fabric.

7. Write over the pencil with your sharpie.

8. Cut apart the greenery and arrange it to your liking. Then, with a hot glue gun, glue it onto the embroidery hoop to cover up the screws.

And that´s it basically! There are so many fun fonts or quotes you can use. I used ¨Home Sweet Home¨ because this house is finally going to be ours and it feels great!

So tell me, what would you do with an embroidery hoop??? I´m determined to find more of these, even here in Spain it must be possible, lol, and then I´d love to make more of these fun little DIY´s with them… maybe smaller ones this time.

Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you´re enjoying August!!!

I’m on the lookout for several embroidery hoops for my kiddos’ room and I have yet to check Goodwill but it sounds like that’s the place to get them. Your wall art is amazing!! Great job friend!!

    Using a sharpie is a genius idea!! I’ve always loved embroidery hoop wall decor, but I don’t have the talent for sewing so I’ve never tried doing it. But this is a tutorial I can follow!

    I have been so in love with the “skinny” wreaths of late and that is what this pretty wall decor reminds me of. I am amazed how you did this with a sharpie! What a beautiful decoration for your home! Thank you so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!

    Your kreativity never ceases to amaze me! I grew up using embroidery hoops in their traditional manner. My Gram felt that every girl should be able to play the piano, serve tea and do embroidery/needlepoint! Alas, I was a bit of a disappointment in all aspects except drinking the tea! I find your use of the hoop a vast improvement over the needle and thread approach. The greenery is a beautiful finishing touch. You are becoming the Queen of Sharpies! Thank-you for this lovely post, as always!

      Aw Thank you so so much Ellen! I´d love to do embroidery, but I´m afraid it wouldn´t turn out the way I envision it, lol. So I rather use a sharpie… haha.

    Congrats with the house. It’s always lovely to know when a place is really yours and not just temporarely. One does feel quite differently about things too. One can finally really be “at home”. I do hope your sign has got a place of honour in that wonderful house/home of yours!
    Have a great week,

    I’m sooooo happy that the house is almost yours Katrin. It makes such a difference when you know you change anything you want without having to ask permission first and your embroidery hoop sign is just the perfect way to welcome guests to your new home. Strange that they’re not easy to find where you stay, I would have thought the were common all over the place.

      Thanks Michelle! It does make a difference and my head is spinning with ideas, lol. My husband said to write a list with all of the things we want to do to the house and I had that list long done, even when we weren´t sure we´d buy it, haha.

    I can’t believe they don’t have them in Spain. Here in Greece there are plenty in all the embroidery and sewing stores. No matter, you got lucky when you found this one all across the pond. Love how it is so simple yet so, so pretty. It would be the perfect piece to add in your entrance.
