Embroidery Hoop Ornament Tutorial

When decorating my office tree this year I wanted to go a little bit of a different route.  Most of you are shocked, I know, that there is a spot of color in my house.  But I just love a good tartan plaid and thought these Embroidery Hoop Ornaments would be fun!

I cannot take credit for this idea as I spotted it on Holly’s blog as part of her Christmas decor years ago.  If you haven’t seen her holiday house…you must!  I adore it all!

Supplies Needed:

Tartan Plaid Fabric (I purchased a yard as I was only going to make a few ornaments).

Embroidery Hoops (I used 6 inch because I have a slim 7 foot tree.  I would suggest bigger if your tree is larger).

– Scissors

Twine

Directions:

Place the embroidery hoop onto a section of your fabric so that you can determine how large you will need to cut it.

Then simply lay your fabric onto the bottom embroidery ring, place the top ring on top of the fabric, and push down to secure.  Tighten the screw if necessary.
