Embroidery hoop nursery decorations

Hi this is Domestic Felicity and today we're going to be doing embroidery hoop nursery decorations. These are really sweet and simple projects. We're going to be using three different sized embroidery hoops. Some nails and a hammer to put them on the wall.

* Glue
* Scissors
* 3 types of fabric

You might want to embroider your hoops or if you don't know how to embroider or don't have the time. You can find a fun fabric you really like. Vintage chenille blankets give me a lot of inspiration and are a lot of fun to work with. I'm going to use the chenille fabric for the largest hoop. So pull the hoops apart, using the interior hoop. I'm going to place glue around the outside of the interior hoop. Once you've gotten all the way around the hoop. Take your chenille fabric and lay it over the hoop.

Now using other outside hoop, loosen it all the way up. We're going to plan where we're going to put it. Usually the screw goes at the top. I'm going to try and make sure my pattern is vertical and even. Then press on my hoop. Then I'm going to gently tighten it just a little bit. Using my fingers to pull the fabric through so it's not loose. Once you're finished just tighten the screw here. Turn it over and we're going to trim off any extra fabric. Flip your hoop over and you're finished!

I love coordinating hoops of different colors and sizes. So for these two small ones, I'm going to use two different types of patterns that coordinate with the chenille fabric. We're going to the exact same process for both of these.

I really like doing decorations like this because when you go to the big box stores and look for baby decorations often they're overly feminine or overly baby boyish and I don't like my house to feel like it's been overcome by pastel baby colors. This is a great way to add some really sweet but adult decor to a baby room.

Now your hoops are finished and these would be perfect for any room in the house. All you have to do is hang them on the wall. You can pick fabric that truly represents your personality. Thanks for watching and have fun guys!
