Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor Ideas

Decorating with embroidery hoops is a great way to use inexpensive materials to create one-of-a-kind art pieces for your home. Not to mention a perfect use for scraps and other sewing items you have already. Make a DIY clock, holiday decor, vintage art, or specific room pieces that will stand out from the crowd. Take a look and see for yourself.

Embroidery Hoop Storage Ideas

You might not expect a wooden circle to be useful when it comes to storage and organization. It's time to rethink that. Just take a look at the Embroidery Hoop OrganizerUpcycled Denim Hanging Baskets, or any of the other unique sewing patterns and projects below.

Creative Embroidery Hoop Art DIYs and Ideas

While you'll find a few pieces of wall art, there is so much more you can make using embroidery hoops. For the coolest embroidery hoop craft ideas, take a look below. You'll find creative makes using embroidery hoops as the base design (but not used in the finished piece).

You can also use embroidery hoops of different sizes to make the smallest necklace to the largest canopy for your child or grandchild's room. There are purses with hoop handles, travel maps, pillows, and even a dinner roll holder to name a few.

DIY Embroidery Hoop Ornaments

DIY ornaments are popular for crafters but these are even more special. Using an embroidery hoop to make an ornament allows you to sew up something using the hoop. Though, unlike many sewing projects using hoops, you won't remove it. Instead, just add a ribbon or other hanger! When it comes to the best uses for embroidery hoops, ornaments are at the top of the list.
