:: diy embroidery hoop art ::

Here's a peek at what I made yesterday afternoon with my thrifted linen fabric, embroidery hoops and vintage doilies. I think these will look great on our wall for Christmas. {total cost - less than $5}

Embroidery hoops are so much fun and so incredibly quick and easy to use. These ones are no-sew too. I just pinned the doilies/lace/ribbon on the fabric with straight pins. Since they will be on the wall you they won't be a safety hazard. I should probably stitch them on, but I like the idea of unpinning them and trying new ideas with the versatile oatmeal coloured linen. Maybe a felt monogram, or a ribbon bow, or a cute little bunting? The possibilities are endless!
