9 Creative Ways to Use an Embroidery Hoop

I’m really not a crafty person, I don’t have the patience for it. I do, however, love cheap decorating ideas and sometimes that requires a little crafting. Embroidery hoop wreaths are so versatile, there is no end to the creative things you can make with them. They only cost a dollar or two at the craft store, so they definitely fall into the budget-friendly category.

One obvious thing you can make with an embroidery hoop is a wreath. My little eucalyptus wreath is one of my favorite craft projects that I’ve ever done. It was so simple, it took less than ten minutes to make!

When it comes to embroidery hoop wreaths, more is always better. Make a wall of wreaths like you see here from Cotton Stem. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Another creative idea is to use two slightly different size hoops and create a lampshade.

    Your eucalyptus wreath is definitely my favorite of the ideas….very cute!

  2. So fun! I have a stash of embroidery hoops from a blog challenge. I made a fun orb, but now I need to try something new! Thanks!

    1. I have a stash of them too, so many possibilities!

  3. Lovely and creative embroidery hoop ideas! Thank you for sharing these beautiful patterns, Roxanne.

  4. I made a mobile with an embroidery hoop and hundreds of paper butterflies when my daughter was a baby. I used it for a baby shower and then put it in her room. It only lasted a few years before dusting it got tedious, so I took it down, but she still remembers it and tells me how much she loved and misses it. Maybe we will try out one of the wall wreaths for her room and I may even have her add a couple butterflies : )
