How To Decorate Your Desk with Embroidery

Do you need to spice up your office or  desk decor? Today we’re sharing a few fun ways you can incorporate your love for embroidery into your workspace. Even if your workspace is in a corporate office, you can still use your embroidering skills to make it more your own and stand out from your coworkers.

Ready to DIY some fun decorations for your desk?

Pick your favorites from the ideas below and deck your desk out in embroidery!

All you need to create some fun, unique desk accessories for your workspace are:

  • Mesh desk accessories you can pick up at Walmart or Target
  • Yarn
  • A darning needle (because it’s thin enough to go through the mesh holes with no problem)
  • Scissors

If you feel the need to jazz up your trash can, you can find these mesh wastebaskets easily. All you have to do is pick out a theme for your desk. Are your favorite colors black and hot pink like the examples in these pictures? Maybe you prefer a light blue and green? Pick out your favorite colors and choose to use those same colors, maybe throwing in a third one here and there, throughout all of your desk accessories for a cohesive and fun look!

Aren’t these cute? Go by Target or Staples, purchase some affordable mesh desk accessories to hold your pencils and papers, and then weave little designs throughout them with all kinds of stitches. It’s a great way to experiment with different stitches too! You can use any colors and create a fun theme for your desk and you can make your desk accessories unique to you!

This is a great way to decorate your office space while practicing your own skills and having fun with it! And you can entirely customize them to your own specific tastes. If you want more tips and to see more examples of embroidered desk accessories, you can see the full tutorial here.
