What’s all the HOOPla? DIY Hoop Art Tutorial

My friend Amanda from

Mommy is Coocoo

created  a wall of beautiful art using embroidery hoops and pretty fabrics. Super easy and affordable do-it-yourself to fill up an empty wall space. So many options for making a design for a custom color palette and space.

Materials:

  • Fabric fabric scraps
  • Embroidery Hoops embroidery hoops

Tutorial:

  • Simply stretch fabric in embroidery hoops, trim to size and hang. Amanda recommends not putting a whole lot of thought into it. Sometimes a random surprise is the best plan.  fabric hoop art tutorial
