The possibilities are absolutely endless.


It's cost-effective way to decorate a nursery wall, for instance.


You can even create a mobile!

Adding any embellishments we want.

Or to make this hoop art a background for a party. How fun!

A simple heart hoop would be perfect for Valentine's Day.

You can even use an embroidery hoop with lace as an earring holder.

Or spell out someone's name. 

Have you ever made embroidery hoop art? I'd love to see yours! I want to make more soon myself.


  1. Lovely inspiration and ideas-thanks Brenda!

  2. Embroidery hoops have certainly taken on a new life. There are a couple of ideas I might just try.

  3. Such a charming way to display art! That mobile is too cute! I've been saving some giant hoops to make a sphere...

  4. Never made one but I think they are so pretty!!

  5. Some cute ideas there! I still have the Irish Prayer to finish embroidering, I'm ashamed to say. Learned the art of embroidery as a child. I'm sure many kids today have no idea what it is!

  6. These are all cute...my favorite, though it is hard to pick one, is the birds-mobile.

    I have embroidered in a hoop but not left it in as art...though I remember that YOU made one last year, or within the last year and a half you were working on one or more...

  7. HA ! me again...i am showing this link to the DIL on her FB wall...why not have the kids pictures printed on fabric and do hoop art family gallery! :)

  8. I love embroidery hoop art too! I made some with different, but coordinating, fabrics to hang on the wall in my daughter's little fort under the stairs.

    Hope you're doing well :)

  9. No I haven't. I've only used them for their original purpose. I love that mobile!! You're right, before we know it it'll be Valentine's Day. I used to love making that day so special when my children were young. Now I'm feeling kind of mopey hahaha

  10. Brenda, It's a cold and snowy Sunday evening here in Colorado. I picked up my copy of the July 2014 Country Sampler magazine, which I had not got around to reading yet, in spite of having it on my mental list of intentions to read. I was delighted to come across the article with pictures from your home, and doubly pleased to see that you are a blogger. I have reviewed this blog and the one with blogger helps and decided to subscribe.

    Your decorating style is fun and cheerful. Your clever frugality and organization is fascinating. I look forward to seeing your future posts. Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

    Oh one more thing, I love how you phrased it, "This place is for women who circle the wagons to help one another. Who are always there, in good times and in bad."

  11. I remember when embroidery hoops were popular 20 or so years ago. It's nice to see them making an appearance again. I'm glad I saved a few!

  12. Yes, about 25 years ago I was making appliqued geese and putting them in hoops. It was a very affordable way to decorate my home. I love the images you shared, Brenda! Lots of great ideas!

  13. I love hoop art. I have some, but nothing fancy, just some different material in each one to go with the decor. I do love these ideas. My cousin who is 32 came to visit this past July and she asked me, what is with all these hoops? I told her to ask her mother who is 62, she would remember from the 70's. Ha Ha. Funny how things come full circle over and over. No pun intended.
