Spring DIY Embroidery Hoop

Spring DIY Embroidery Hoop Wall Art

Hello, my sweet friends. There's something magical about the changing seasons, especially spring, with its promise of new growth and longer days. This year, I've embraced a minimalist approach to spring decor, focusing on adding live greenery around our home. To blend my love for crafting with the desire for simplicity, I've crafted a simple spring DIY embroidery hoop wall art, adding a touch of whimsy and charm.

If you're here from Kendra at Joy in Our Home, welcome! I'm excited to share this embroidery hoop inspiration, along with some fantastic bloggers you'll want to meet.

This craft is straightforward, requiring just a few basic supplies, and it's a lovely way to sprinkle a bit of spring into any room. Plus, it's a wonderful opportunity to personalize your decor, and perfection is not the goal!

Supplies Needed:

  • Embroidery Hoop (I used 4" hoops)
  • Cloth (any type works, I used leftover dropcloth)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Large-eye needle
  • Fabric scissors
  • Sewing marking pen
  • Hot glue gun

Simple Steps:

  1. Prepare the Fabric: Cut the fabric a few inches larger than your hoop.
  2. Secure Fabric in Hoop: Place the fabric in the hoop, tighten the screw, and trim the excess fabric.
  3. Draw Your Design: With the sewing marker, sketch out your design. I chose a simple flower.
  4. Start Stitching: Use the embroidery floss to bring your design to life. I kept the floss strands together for a fuller look.
  5. Erase Marker Lines: Once stitching is complete, use a damp paper towel to remove any visible marker lines.
  6. Final Trim: Ensure the fabric is taut, then trim around the hoop, leaving a small margin.
  7. Attach Fabric: Use hot glue to secure the fabric's edge to the inside back of the hoop.
  8. Display Your Art: Hang or place your embroidery hoop art as desired.

This project not only adds a spring vibe to our dining room but also serves as a nostalgic journey back to my elementary school days of cross-stitching. It's a reminder that creativity doesn't have to be complex to be meaningful.

As we await the full arrival of spring, these small touches of decor bring warmth and hope to our home. And, as a bonus, I've been incorporating more plants to complement the embroidery art and fill our space with life.
