Embroidery Hoop Art DIY

Today's project is all about creating your own simple art for your walls.  You may have read the post about this extra large art DIY, but today's art is on a much smaller scale.  You will be using embroidery hoops to determine the size of your wall art, which come in a variety of sizes and shapes.  I happen to love this oval shaped hoop that I had left over from a project a while back.

To get started you will need:

  • 1 embroidery hoop
  • white cloth {mine is an old pillowcase!}
  • acrylic paint
  • paint brushes

I began by taking the hoop apart and placing the material in between the hoops.  Then I secured the outer hoop into place and made sure the material was stretched tight.

Next I decided what color I would use, and what pattern I wanted to paint.  You could repeat dots, squares, zig zags, triangles, or {in my case} v's.  If you are good at free hand drawing then I'm sure you can come up with something even more than a repeated pattern!  But thankfully for the rest of us, being an artist is not required for this DIY!

I painted the v's in one color and left a few random blank spaces.  When I finished I went back in with a copper/gold color and filled in a few random v's with the new color.

And after 5 minutes I was done.  I let it dry, cut the extra fabric from the back, and my hoop art was ready for the walls.  You could also get your kids in on the action, hand each of them their own fabric and a specific color{s}.n Mount them in different sized hoops and then group them together on the wall for a big impact.
