Embroidery Hoop Wall Art


This is a simple, cheap craft that can recreate your living space in a matter of minutes. 

What You'll Need:
Fabric
Embroidery hoops (I paid less than $2 each)
Craft Glue
Scissors


Lay your fabric over the inner hoop leaving about two inches of fabric around the sides.  Be sure the fabric is centered. Place the outer hoop on and tighten the screw.  Remember that the screw needs to be at the top of your wall art. Pull the fabric tight so that there are no creases or bubbles.

Add glue (I used Tacky Glue) to the inside rim, fold the excess fabric over and hold for just a moment. Let the glue dry for a few minutes and then cut off excess fabric.

Hang them up and enjoy your beautiful wall art!
