It is so easy to create beautiful art with an embroidery hoop or two! I love how this shibori indigo art piece turned out.
Today’s link party is all about embroidery hoops! We have put together so many ideas and I’m really excited to share mine. Embroidery isn’t really ‘in’ right now and I know a lot of homes with hoops just laying around. We have lots of ideas of what you could do with them today!
As some of you know I have an Etsy store where I have natural dyed towels, onesies, swaddles and t shirts. I decided to try to incorperate it in this little art peice on my wall. It worked out! (Just in the nick of time.)
What you need for your Embroidery Hoop Art
- Embroidery hoops of different sizes
- Fabric to dye (or you can use tea towels of your choice!)
- Hot glue
I started by cutting out the fabric about 1/2 and inch bigger than each hoop.
At this point i dyed my fabric. I plan to give you a tutorial on exactly how I do my indigo dye! Until then you can buy some I’ve dyed or use any beautiful fabric of your choosing.
While my fabric was oxidizing I arranged my hoops how I wanted them to be hanging on the wall.
Fit the fabric around the inner hoop and secure it with the outer hoop.
At this point I hot glued each piece together! I tried wood glue and there just wasn’t enough surface area for it to grab on to so I would suggest hot glue.
Then I used command strips to hang it up! My friend Jess from Pretty Providence did this with her gallery wall and I use command strips for pretty much everything now.
I love how this turned out!
