I'm sure you've seen the way so many people are using embroidery hoops to decorate. I think it's such a fabulous way to make walls look more interesting!
I created a little twist on some of mine so I could hang my earrings on them too!
On some, I simply stuck a piece of twine in with my fabric & adjusted the tension. That's it!
And the sweater hoop didn't need any twine, the earrings go right through the knit with ease...but believe me it's handy!!
1st I placed the hoop on an old sweater of mine. I have always loved the color & pattern of this sweater but it's always looke bulky on me & the neck was starting to bleach out. Once I figured out where I wanted to cut, I went for it!
Then I cut about 1" outside of the hoop.
Then I placed my circle inside the hoop & adjusted the tension.
Then I glued my leftover edges to the inside of the hoop.
After doing this project, this is how I decided to use/display my hoops. Some are in my bedroom where I use them to hang my earrings next to my other jewelry...and I made MORE decorative hoops with scraps of fabric, burlap, more of the old sweater, and a vintage pillow case - and I hung in the hallway for decoration!
