Embroidery hoop wreath
Hi, my name is Steph from The Silly Pearl! In between spending time with my husband and 4 year old twin girls, I love to create. I started silly pearl to write about my sewing, paper crafting, jewelery making and cooking adventures. I am inspired by my girls as well as my mom, my crafty partner-in-crime.
I am so happy to be here at Craftionary today. Thanks Hani for having me!
Today I am sharing my Embroidery hoop wreath.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Embroidery hoops (a big 10″ and a small 3.5″)
- Fabric (for yo-yo flowers) and twill (for the small hoop)
- Jute twine
- Covered Buttons kit
- Hot glue
- Scraps of fabric, needles and
- Circle templates of different sizes (to cut fabric)
- Wrap the blue yarn around the big hoop, start by pinching the yarn between the two hoops and covered both the hoops with yarn. Knot the two ends when all entire hoop is covered.
- Wrap only the outer ring of the small hoop, as we will be inserting fabric on the inside ring. Write the word “Spring” or whatever you want on the hoop and embroider it.
- Wrap the jute twine around the big hoop, starting at the and knot when you reach the end. Leave some length at the start and the end (this length will be used to hang the hoop).
- To make yo-yo flowers and covered buttons, I used vase and a bowl as my circle templates
- To make the yo-yo flowers, gather along the edges with your needle and thread, pulling along the way until you have completed the circle. Flatten into a yo-yo, pull the starting end out at least an inch and cut of the other at the same length and knot them together tightly.
- Use the covered button kit to make fabric covered buttons.
- Make yoyo flowers using your needle to make flares around the center.
Just to add a little more interest, I added jute twine as bows under the yo-yo flowers.
- Arrange and hot glue in place. Hmmm I need one more at the top
Hang it on your door and you’re done!
