How to make an Embroidery Hoop Art Wall

~ I love fabric! ~

 I have lots of fabric remnants.
I also have this big, blank wall
in our newly painted guest bedroom. Hmmm…
So I bought a few large wooden hoops at Hobby Lobby
added some fabric & hung them on the wall
I am liking it!
So I start looking for lots of wooden hoops on ebay
I purchased thirty hoops for $15
and added fabric I already had to the hoops

I tried not to worry a lot about fabric placement
or what part of the fabric looked best
{as with all my projects I recommend wine if you are anal and tend to over think things}
If you like the fabric, DON’T WORRY about it matching!
Next I trimmed all the extra fabric
and began placing the hoops on the wall
{you will most definitely need some wine for this part}
I rotated sides and added a few hoops on the left and then a few on the right. I used very small nails.
Try your best NOT to over think it.

some of my hoops touch. some don’t.

What do you do with fabric remnants?

    I love how colorful this is! What a great idea.
    Our third child is a boy, after two girls, he rocks a lot of pink :)

    Really, really cute idea. I love your combination of fabrics and colors! What fun! Would you believe that back in the 70’s we were filling those centers with fabric GEESE and then surrounding the outside of the hoop/frame with eyelet? yeah…that was the 70’s. Your idea is MUCHO better! xo Diana

    Actually, I love your fabrics and this idea! Who’d have thunk it would work out so beautifully. Really makes the whole wall just POP. Now I know what to do with all that fabric I have laying around…

    I love this! It’s so bright and colorful, but so simple! I don’t know if I would ever be able to decide which fabrics to use! Love yours!

    I have tons of leftover fabric that I could use…if only I had walls. LOL And I totally got the big brother hand-me-down jammies thing. I also had a girl after two boys.

    that’s completely adorable :) wonderful idea and such a beautiful collection of fabric pieces – perfect way to upcycle them!

    I’m in love with this! All the fabrics are so happy looking together! I’ve pinned it for future inspiration. :)

    These are precious! Such great vintage appeal, but even my contemporary teen loves it. Thanks for the ebay tip, we just looked at these at JoAnn Fabrics yesterday and they are $6 each. Love it!
    Cheers, Andrea

    This totally makes my fabric loving heart happy! So pretty! I have been wanting to do the same thing but I am so weird about hoarding my fabric. Why oh why do i not just display it because I love it so much???? Just lovely!

    Wonderful! We did this for my daughters dorm room this year and it was a huge hit with all the college girls!

    This is wonderful! Some fabric is so pretty all on it’s own, I love this idea for showing it off!

    I never know what to do with my remnants. I usually save all the salvage for a friend who make stuff out of that. This is pretty brilliant! I want this on my wall.
