Embroidery Hoop Wall Art Tutorial {Welcom Bonnie & Trish from Uncommon}

Howdy friends! Today you can find me over in Bonnie & Trish's corner of the world sharing my chunky bracelet tutorial  {an oldie but goodie especially if you are looking for a holiday gift idea!}for their Tuesday Trade-Off over at their blog Uncommon. In the mean time though, check out their awesome wall art below. It's perfect for people like me who couldn't sew or do embroidery work if my life depended on it {so I suggest never getting held hostage in a Hobby Lobby with me!}

Hi Delightfully Noted readers!  We are Bonnie and Trish from  Uncommon. On our blog we post about sewing, handmade decor, entertaining, and all things crafty.  Right now we are hosting a Home for the Holidays party and would love to have you join us! We are thrilled to be swapping with Jennifer today and are eager to share our Embroidery Hoop Wall Art with you!  
Looking for an inexpensive way to add a pop of color to your walls? Embroidery Hoop art is all the rage right now, so we thought we'd give it a try. We used Amy Butler's French Wallpaper fabric in orange and had it monogrammed in a rich chocolate brown (Thanks, Lara!). It is so beautful and is the perfect combination of vibrant color mixed with classic style. It was also a lot of fun to make and a great one evening project. Here are the details:

Supplies Needed:
  • 12" wooden embroidery hoop
  • 14" square of fabric, monogrammed
  • 14" square of cotton canvas
  • spray paint in your color of choice
  • iron
  • hot glue gun

Step 1.
Spray paint your embroidery hoop. I taped off the metal hardware and sprayed a couple of coats until it was completely covered.
Step 2.
Iron both pieces of fabric and put the main fabric on top of the canvas so you can see the monogram. Then, slip it on the embroidery hoop. Make sure it is exactly how you want it to show, because in the next step it becomes permanent. It should be wrinkle-free and very tight.

Step 3.
Turn over the hoop and begin to hot glue the fabric to the exposed wooden hoop on the underside. Clip any excess fabric. You can also cover this with ribbon and glue if you like for a more finished appearance.


Thanks so much for having us today, Jennifer! 

Happy Holidays!
