“Everything that goes up, inevitably comes down. Don’t ever let yourself be blinded by the lights. Always stay true to yourself and your ideals. Do not become a statistic within a trend you are following.”

Do you ever feel like following decor trends is like a dog trying to catch it’s tail?
Farmhouse has been huge the last few years and now there is a move toward boho and modern farmhouse. What happens when trends change? Lots of stuff goes by the way side…….TONS AND TONS of it. Thrift stores can hardly keep up, and some stuff just doesn’t even get resold…. sadly it gets trashed.
One of the ways to add little bits of current trends is by upcycling. Not only does it save money, but it helps reduce waste by using what you already have or items from a thrift store like was done for today’s’ project…..

- Embroidery Hoop…usually easy to find at your local thrift store
- Various Yarns..8 were used in this project, including a t shirt yarn leftover from this project
- Dowel..the one used here is from a small flag from the thrift store.
- Hot Glue (if desired)
- The point of the flag, and the flag itself, was removed (no flags were harmed in the making of this craft.) You can easily substitute a small dowel and cut it to fit inside the embroidery hoop.
- Yarn was selected with a color base of blue, green, and purple.
- Decide on the design of your hoop yarn art.
- Cut the yarn, for your first color. You will need to cut the yarn double the length you want it. This design is using 10 strings for thin yarn and 5 strings for thick.
- Double the piece of yarn and place behind the dowel with the loop at top and the two ends at the bottom. Pull the ends through the loop around the dowel.
- Continue this process with all colors of yarn in desired lengths. Note – Remember to loop all yarn the same way so the knot, loop around the dowel, is going the same way each time.
- After the dowel is completely full, packed, you can glue or set the dowel inside the embroidery hoop.
- If desired, take another piece of string/yarn, and loop around the top to hang on the wall.
