I’m loving all of the Hoop Art lately and can’t get enough of it. I wanted to make a nice little addition for our house using an embroidery hoop that included a little fabric too. Here’s a simple how to make your own easy DIY Hoop Art with Hearts in no time. Let’s get started.
Supplies You Need:
- Yarn (Enough to wrap around a 10″ hoop.)
- 10″ Embroidery Hoop
- Sewing Pins
- Various Fabric Scraps
- Pinking Shears
- Clip Art of A Heart
- Embroidery Floss (DMC Floss)
- Fiber Fill
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Tie a knot to secure your yarn to the hoop. You can even use a little hot glue if you want to really secure your yarn.
Step 2: Wrap the yarn around the hoop until the hoop is entirely covered.
Step 3: Tie a knot and secure the end of yarn on the back side of the hoop.
Step 4: Fold your fabric scrap in half. Take the clip art heart and secure it in place with a pin. Cut two hearts out of the piece of fabric. This will make one finished heart. Cut 10 hearts out of fabric for 5 complete hearts.
Step 5: Take a piece of embroidery floss and sew two heart pieces together making sure the right side of the fabric is facing out on both pieces of fabric. I sewed large stitches in. Sew around the heart and leave a little opening to stuff the heart.
Step 6: Stuff the heart with fiber fill and sew the rest of the heart closed.
Step 7: Repeat this process for all of the hearts.
Step 8: Hot glue the hearts in place.
There you have it. Simple and easy and it looks cute too.
I’m loving this little beauty and can’t wait to find a special place for it in our house.
