Weekend Inspiration: Embroidery Hoops

There are so may neat projects all over the internet world. I love looking through them and thinking "How did they ever come up with this!?" Sometimes, people are amazing. Sometimes, not so much. But the not so much times are not what we are focusing on now. I'd like to start a new series on Friday called "Weekend Inspiration." My plan is to scour the internet to find the coolest DIY and crafty ideas with a theme. This week, the theme is using embroidery hoops. They're super inexpensive and extremely versatile. That's enough to inspire me at least...

This amazing table runner on On to Baby

This could be a great addition to any classroom. Or any room. Ever.
Made by Heatherlee of Lady Poppins.

Always been a favorite quote! From the Etsy shop Art by Autumn.

I am pretty much obsessed with this photo chandelier from Natalme.

So fresh and springy. From the Etsy shop littlenestbox.

This idea has been around for a while because it's so cute and simple.
This wall art is from Inspired by Charm.

Wouldn't this be a sweet baby shower gift? Made over on Creative Jewish Mom

OMGoodness, can you imagine a wall in a craft room with a bunch of variations on this idea as supplies organizers? Someday, when I'm not such a vagabond... Sewing kit from The Train to Crazy.

A wine cork trivet is classy and useful. This is so grown up-esque it's almost intimidating.
See the tutorial on Lines Across.

HOOP. There is is... I'm sorry. I had to. 

Will you make any of these? Have they inspired you for a new, completely different project? I'd love to know.

Sheila  :)

PS. Have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Sheila, what's a trivet??? And I think even I have the craft skills necessary to do that fabric thang. I'm lovin this series.

    1. Thanks Sarah! A trivet is a pad you can put hot plates or pots on so they don't burn a counter top or table. Grown up-esque right??

      You could definitely do the fabric thing, and I would love to see it when you do!

    1. I audibly gasped when I found your sewing kit, haha. Thanks for creating something so cute! And coming by to see it :)

  3. Such cute ideas! I think my favorite is the photo chandelier. I do also really like the baby mobile. :) Great crafty gift idea!

    1. Thanks! If you make either of them I'd love to see your spin on it :)

  4. Thank you so much for including my solar system mobile, Sheila! I loved your post. I loved all of the creative uses for embroidery hoops, which are easily found at thrift stores for quarters. I will be coming back for sure!

    1. Thanks for making such a cool craft! And for coming by to see it :) I have big plans of making the solar system mobile for my Mom's kindergarten classroom.
