Another Embroidery Hoop Project

Hello Crafters,
This project is easy to make and you probably have most of the supplies around your house. I will say that their are a lot of pictures but I think it makes the project easier to understand. You can choose any theme for this project, I saw this cute scrapbooking paper by the Paper Studio and thought of my adorable dog. This project is a Embroidery Hoop Picture Hanger that you can hang on the wall and display your favorite photo. This project was fun to make and I hope you like it!

Enjoy,
Katie



                                                            Embroidery Hoop Picture Hanger

     

                                                                             Supplies
Embroidery Hoop
Paint ( of your chose)
Scissors or Craft Knife
Foam Brush
Cardboard
Ribbon
Scrapbooking Paper ( your chose)
Fabric 
Buttons or Any Small Decorative Object  
Aleene's  Tacky Glue ( not pictured)
Aleene's Fabric Fushion (not pictured)

Step 1: Trace around your embroidery hoop with a marker onto your cardboard. Then cut it out and set it to the side.

Step 2: Then take apart your embroidery hoop and paint it with your color of paint. I'm using Americana acrylic paint in Sea Glass.




Step 3: While your paint is drying get out your cardboard circle that we cut out earlier and use it as your template for your scrapbooking paper and fabric. Cut out both circles and you should in total have 1 cardboard circle, 1 fabric circle and 1 scrapbook paper circle.



 Step 4: Once your embroidery hoop is dry, take the smaller hoop and trace around it onto your cardboard ( this will make your cardboard circle smaller and your cardboard should fit inside the smaller hoop). 



Step 5: Put your embroidery hoop back together, and run a line of Aleene's Tacky Glue on one side of the hoop. Then attach your scrapbooking paper circle to the glue and let it dry.

Step 6: Now flip your embroidery hoop over and apply Alleene's Tacky Glue all over the back of your scrapbooking paper. Then press your cardboard circle into the glue and let it dry.

Step 7: Now apply Aleene's Frabic Fusion Glue along the edge of the hoop and attach your fabric.



Step 8: While your embroidery hoop is drying, apply some Aleene's Tacky Glue to the top of a thumbtack and attach a button of your choice.


Step 9: Add your ribbon to the top of your embroidery hoop,attach a picture with your decorative thumbtack and hang it on your wall and your done!



Here's a smaller version of this project, where I went all out with the Bingo Theme.
