It’s Day 7 in my 31 Days series on DIY Wall Art and tonight I’m sharing one of my latest diy wall art crushes: embroidery hoops! When I first spotted this wall art idea on Pinterest awhile back, I had a serious ooh-la-la moment, and I’ve been hooked on it ever since.

While I haven’t tried it yet in my own home, I think it would work well with my more casual decorating style – perhaps as part of a gallery wall grouping, or in my 8yo daughter’s room. I just adore this bright and happy arrangment by Owly Baby blog.

I think embroidery hoops look fab grouped together into an eclectic collection (filled with vintage or mod fabric). But they can easily stand alone as a vibrant pop of pattern or color in a room too.

Plus, because they’re circular, they are a great way to add movement and visual interest to an otherwise square display. They work well that way like using plates as wall art.
The best part? Embroidery hoops are totally affordable. I’ve read that you can often find them at thrift stores for a steal. Those thrift store hoops must be cast-aways from all the 1990s cross-stitchers like me! Did I just date myself?!?
Until next time,
