It is about to be full Hallmark season yall! This means it’s time to get those Christmas decorations out, and let the crafting begin (as if you haven’t done so already)!
One of my favorite things to craft these days, is embroidery hoops. There are so many different variations you can do, and they all can be done quickly. Mix and match different fabrics with different styles of HTV or transfers for a fun easy DIY project.
Depending on what style you are trying to achieve, you can add or reduce certain elements.
Here are a few that I generally play around with:
These hoops come in a variety of sizes. I purchased this pack from Amazon:
This pack includes 6 different sizes ranging from 4” to 10” for under $9. You can display just one, or you can make a gallery wall effect by adding several together!
Larger hoops can be displayed on the wall as well as your front door as a wreath. Smaller hoops are great for creating ornaments for your Christmas tree.
The hoops that I purchased came in a light bamboo finish, however you can change that very easily. Most of the time, I chose to stain the material a darker wood. You can also use paint if you are trying to match a certain color!
Soo many options:
Luckily fabric is pretty inexpensive, especially with the small amount that this project requires. The scrap bin is perfect for this! Plaid, polka dots, solid, really anything looks great when you add heat transfer vinyl on top.
This is where you can get creative! It’s also a great way to be able to utilize most of the miscellaneous items you have lying around your house (hello…more profit!). Popular items to add include greenery, flowers, and ribbon.
Embroidery hoops are not only a fun project to create for yourself, but a great item to sell. You can really control your cost on most of these supplies, so your profit is higher! When you use your Silhouette or Cricut, you are able to add more customization which is always helps sell an item as well!
