Fun Activities with Your Embroidery Hoop

Fun Activities with Your Embroidery Hoop

As much as you love embroidering, you probably have the creative bug which draws you to any DIY or crafty projects, right? Well we’ve got some great ideas for those of you who have extra embroidery hoops lying around and need a new project! These projects vary from innovative ways to use or recycle your embroidery hoops to different ways to display your embroideries on the hoops. We’ve got something for everyone! And if you’re looking for a cool way to hang your embroidery, we have a few ideas from past blog posts too.

Embroidery Hoop Hamper

If you have a larger embroidery hoop laying around, create a hanging hamper! They would be great for holding kid’s toys or collecting your dirty washcloths. Regardless, you just need some beautiful fabric (in fact in the tutorial they used a pillow case!), an embroidery hoop, twine or ribbon, a drill, and hooks and screws to put it all together!

Embroidery Hoop Organization

Do you need a way to hang up your embroidery supplies? Or any little knick knacks like scissors or tools? We’ve got a cool idea! Use your extra embroidery hoops to hang them up in an interesting way. It’s also a great way to keep your sewing or embroidering supplies up and out of the reach of children! Find the whole tutorial on Yellow Spool.

Embroidery Hoop Photo Collage
