Embroidery Wall Hoops- Frugal Wall Art!

One of my favorite things about owning a house is being able to make it into my own. I’ve spent the last three years painting, replacing flooring, tiling, and doing all the other fun stuff that’s necessary when you own a house. I’ve just now been able to start decorating and making it feel more like home.

The only problem that I’ve run into is that a lot of home goods are expensive!  Wall art is probably the biggest piece of the puzzle as far as bringing a room together.  It’s just not in me to spend $50 or $60 on a piece of wall art.  I try to make do with what I have and come up with creative ways to make my house look good without raiding my bank account.

This weekend I went through my fabric stash and decided I was going to use some of it to make embroidery wall hoops.  I did have to go buy the embroidery hoops (they were $1.00 each).

I took the fabric, stretched it over the embroidery hoops, trimmed it in the back to go around the hoop, and glued the pieces over the edge in.  It was so simple!  I think they go well with the quilt, which is a handmade quilt from my aunt.  The only thing is that it took me forever to get them on the wall right!

Mr. Money is undecided on whether or not he likes them.  I just think they may be too girly for him.  I’d love to have your opinion!

Do you like my frugal wall art?

  1. I think they look great! I like how the colors match with the quilt… and I think they would look very pretty in a nursery.

    I think they are adorable- love the fabric, but I can see his point about being girly. It’s hard to strike that balance of peaceful and pretty without being too feminine in the master bedroom. Where did you find embroidery hoops for $1? I’d love to get some!

    brite- LOLOL that is the guest bedroom. I can imagine if I did that in our master! ;) Sorry- I should have specified.

    I got them at our local craft store. I was stoked!

  4. what a creative idea. I agree with Mrs. Accountability- I think they would look very cute in a nursery (if you’re feeling particularly crafty I suppose you could add giant letters in the middle – either just ABCs in order or spell out the child’s name).

    they also go really well with the quilt – your aunt must be really talented!

    ami- Aww I can’t wait until that room is the nursery. :) I could just put the crib under them.

    It is really old- it’s actually my mom’s aunt that made it! I love it.
