Embroidery Hoop Wall Art Tutorial

 To finish up the nursery decor I went with some embroidery hoop wall art and one fabric covered canvas. The embroidery hoop wall art is so quick and easy and a great way to fill up a large wall!

I love the bit of 3D aspect to it as well

For a little extra fun I did some freezer paper stenciling on a couple of the hoops

It’s definitely a bit of a 70’s look when combined with my bird/owl theme but I love how it turned out and it will be easy to swap things out later if I want a different look

Let’s start with the embroidery hoops. If you don’t already have some on hand check your local thrift store. I wanted pretty specific sizes and I love the oval ones so I ordered mine through Craft-e-Corner. Including shipping I paid around $15 for all 5 and got just what I wanted.

I used freezer paper stenciling for the birdhouse and “LOVE”. I cut both designs out with my cricut but you could also use scissors. I fed the freezer paper into my cutter shiny side up. For the LOVE design I cut it out as a mirror image so the lettering wouldn’t end up backwards. Peel away the portion you want to paint and then iron the freezer paper to the right side of the fabricIMG_6726

Paint it in. For clothing you want to use fabric paint but for something going on the wall regular acrylic works just fineIMG_6727

Wait for it to dry, peel it off and you’re ready to go!

Next you need to add the fabric to your embroidery hoops. Cut the fabric to the hoop size + 1″ extra around all edges. Wrap it around the inner frame and then slide the outer frame on top and tighten. Here’s what you’ll have from the back

Use a hot glue gun or tacky glue to glue down the extra fabricIMG_6756

I used tack glue and just worked my way around. It will have some little pleats in it but it won’t show so don’t worry about thatIMG_6757

Flip it over and you’re done! To hang mine up I just stuck thumbtacks in the fall and hung the hoops right over them. You could also use small nailsIMG_6758

For the canvas I cut my fabric to 1-2″ bigger around all sides. I wrapped the 2 long edges first and secured with tacky glue. Hot glue would work as well. Just make sure you pull it nice and tight. Sorry about the blurry photo 🙂

Fold in the remaining sides at the corners

And then fold the fabric up and glue in place

And that’s it! Hang and enjoy 🙂 I hung my canvas with the 3M mounted strips and it worked great
