Where To Find Embiodary Hoops
You can purchase brand-new embroidery hoops but where is the fun/salvaging in that?
Now, given the salvager you are (wink, wink) you may already have some embroidery hoops in your craft stash. If not, here are some other ideas if you need to pick up a few.
- Dollar Store
- Thrift Store
- Buy Nothing Groups
Valentine’s Hoop Craft Directions
- Begin by placing a piece of pink felt inside the wooden hoop. Press the two pieces together so the
felt is clasped tightly. Take scissors and remove any extra felt hanging from the edges.
- Using your scissors snip out some various felt hearts. You can do any size and color you wish. Just
make sure there is some variation.
- Add a dab of glue to each end of the twine. Pull the twine across the front of the hoop and press the
ends to the sides, securing them.
- You can now add dabs of glue to the back of the felt hearts and press them to the clothesline you created
with the twine.
- You can add a ribbon, like the scrap ribbon you keep, for hanging or just display the hoop as is.
Bling out your Valentine Hoop
Are you classic or sparkly?
If you are a sparkly person, you can definitely bling this out!!
Tips for Make a Valentine’s Day Embroidery Hoop
Use sharp scissors. Keep a pair just for crafting and don’t let anyone use them to pry open a jar or cut their jeans with them.
Regular white glue can be used. If you use a glue gun, just know it could be seen through the heart so I don’t think I would recommend it.
Instead of having the twine around the edge of the hoop, you could cut the twine so that it ends right at the hoop so it looks like it is framed.
Try to get the background felt tight on the hoop. It will look best if it’s a smooth/tight surface to work with.
