Supplies

One 4” wooden embroidery hoop

Two 6″ wooden embroidery hoops

Three 10″ wooden embroidery hoops (really 2 1/2. I like the look of an odd number of large hoops, so I only used five of the six halves.)

Three shades of craft paint- I used various grays

Sponge brush

Wood glue

E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive

Small flathead screwdriver

Sandpaper

Make your embroidery hoop wall art

1. Separate the inner and outer rings of the embroidery hoops.

2. Remove the hardware from your hoops using a small flathead screwdriver by carefully prying the metal off.

3. Use wood glue to fix any cracks and to attach the ends of the wood back together. Also add some glue to help fill up the holes from the hardware.
*hint- sometimes all you have to do is put the glue in and the ends will push together. If the hoop is warped or just not lining up, apply plenty of glue, push ends together and wrap a small paper around the area. Be sure the wood pieces are touching in the center and put a clothespin over the area to hold it.

4. Let the glue dry thoroughly.

5. Pull any paper off that isn’t laying flat and glued down.

6. Sand the areas you’ve glued to leave a nice surface. Also sand any other rough spots you’ve noticed.

7. Paint your circles. Lean on something to dry so it doesn’t stick to your surface.

This wood really soaked up the paint- I used close to half a bottle of each shade (2 oz bottles similar to these). It took two coats for an even color.

Here’s how I divided up the colors: 

Light gray – one 4″, one 8″, two 10″ circles
Medium gray – two 8″, one 10″ circle
Dark gray – one 4″, one 8″, two 10″ circles

8. Once the glue is dry, find a large flat area where you’ll be able to leave your project for several hours once it’s glued. Cover the area with newspaper in case glue drips.

9. Arrange the hoops until you like how they look.

10. Using a toothpick, put little blobs (about the size of a small pea) of E6000 each place where the hoops meet. If you have hoops on the top layer that only touch one other hoop (like my 4″ light gray hoop at the top), put a spoon or something under the other side to hold it up while the glue dries.

About E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive:

I like this glue because it REALLY holds! I tried hot glue first and it just fell apart. I’ve used this glue for other projects and loved how it’s worked. I couldn’t find it at my local store but you can find E6000 on Amazon here. Also, it has a strong smell and takes a couple hours to dry so you’ll want to choose a spot where that won’t be a problem. It comes in a metal tube that only needs to be squeezed a tiny bit to get some out. It doesn’t take a lot so the tube lasts a long time.

11. When the adhesive is dry, carefully pick up your hoop art. Watch to be sure everything was properly glued and is holding together.

12. Hang using dressmaker pins or small nails. I used pins because they don’t really show and I was able to bend them a little for a stronger hold.

Enjoy! I really love how this looks over my couch!

Supplies

Clear round ornaments- I like using these plastic ones with kids so I don’t have to worry about them breaking and kids getting cut. I still use glass ornaments when it’s just me because I like the way they shine.

Mini snowballs

1/2 Glitter Ribbon– I used red but other holiday colors would look beautiful too!

Ornament hooks or clear fishing line

Make your simply snowballs ornament

1. Gently remove metal hanger from the ornament.

2. Add mini snowballs until 1/3 to 1/2 full.

*Tip: To help get the snowballs in and not make a giant mess, roll up a piece of paper to make a cone, secure with tape, and put the small end in the ornament. Slowly put the snowballs into the cone so they can fall into the ornament. If you put too many in the cone at once, they’ll get stuck.*

3. Replace the metal hanger.

4. Add a bow. I obviously used red, but you can swap to green, silver, gold, blue, or other colors to match your decor!

5. Hang with ornament hangers, thread, or fishing line. I like the fishing line because it doesn’t tangle very easily.
