How to Make a Large Embroidery Hoop DIY Ornament
I started this easy Christmas DIY by tracing the shape of the 8-inch embroidery hoop onto my piece of cardboard and then I cut the circle out.
Then, I traced the cardboard circle on the back of the black buffalo check scrapbook paper and cut that circle out.
Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the surface of the cardboard circle and place the scrapbook paper circle onto it. Cover with a piece of plastic saran wrap and use a rolling pin to smooth out any bubbles.
Next, I painted the Walmart 8-inch embroidery hoop brown with Apple Barrel’s burnt umber acrylic paint and used a wet wipe to remove the excess paint. This gave me a slightly stained finish.
I dry placed all the pieces I wanted to use for this large Christmas ornament to make sure my vision would work before I started gluing things in place.
Then, I went ahead and made my bow! I cut a few strips from each of my ribbon patterns (you can use whatever ribbon you want) and laid them in an x bow pattern.
Once I was happy with the size of my bow, I secured ribbon strips together by tying a piece of jute twine around the middle of the X.
Next, I worked on the little wooden house! I used red, brown, and white paint to decorate the wooden house.
I glued a piece of scrapbook paper to the back of the house to cover the holes so I could paint them black.
Bring it all together
Next, I glued the burlap piece with buffalo check trim around the embroidery hoop to create the hanger for this large ornament.
Then, I glued the embroidery hoop onto the buffalo check decoupaged cardboard circle.
Hot glue the greenery sprays to the top of the embroidery hoop, and glue the bow over the middle of the greenery sprays.
Then, I hot glued the painted wooden house and the white tree ornament onto the buffalo check decoupaged cardboard circle.
Lastly, I glued some of the chunky white yarn below the house and tree to look like snow, and I glued the JOY scrabble letters above the house!
