Look! Wall Art Made with Embroidery Hoops

We recently spied this display that Taryn (who runs an Etsy shop called littlewhirl) created for her daughter's room. Our first thought: How charming! Our second thought: Hey, we could do that!

If you're a frustrated fabric junkie with a huge stockpile of material but no time for involved projects, creating a wall display like this may help you deal with your jones. What makes Taryn's project work so beautifully is a combination of three things:

  • using at least three or four different sizes of hoops,
  • choosing a variety of patterns and colors with a unifying principle (in this case, all the fabrics Taryn chose are vintage or vintage-inspired), and
  • hanging the hoops loosely, but still closely spaced, so that you get the sense of bubbles floating on the wall.

Thanks for sharing, Taryn!
