Crafting with Embroidery Hoops

I keep loads of embroidery hoops in my craft studio, some new, some thrifted, several vintage. Besides stretching fabric taught for embroidery, there’s a multitude of projects to be crafted with them.Cathe-Holden-Rosette-Forms-01I’ve painted and utilized embroidery hoops as mobile suspension rings in one of my book projects, the Rosette Art mobile.8ec5514654e445610a7ba0e1bd09442aI kept one natural wood and used it for a house luminary mobile.Cathe-Holden-House-Luminary-MobileI also enjoy decorating small hoops with rubber stamps and washi tape to create sweet, mini frames for tiny decor or to use on larger projects.

    I used a couple last year as bases for diaper wreaths for baby shower gifts. They worked great for this!

    Oh my gosh… I used embroidery hoops for, well, embroidery, sometimes to paint on stenciling and so forth to clothing. But I love this idea. I have a lot of rubber stamps and haven’t used them for much in a while. How tough is it to get a strait stamp on a round object like that? (I’m a little intimidated to try it myself soon.)

    Really neat to hear about embroidery hoops at thrift stores. I’ll have to look more when I get a chance to go to another one! Thank you. ^_^
