Christmas Hoop Art

Make your own Christmas Hoop Art- Easy to follow tutorial included

I go a little crazy now and then when I find something I really like. Right now, it’s hoop art. Completely and totally obsessed. I think hoop art first caught my attention when I was working on a nursery for a baby girl and saw all sorts of cute hoop art as wall decor. I’ve been obsessed ever since and I finally decided to try my hand at it.

In the interest of full disclosure, the project I’m sharing today was my second attempt…the first was a giant fail. Embroidery looked simple enough. Except it isn’t. My end result looked like a toddler made it. So I did what I always do. Research and study. I bought a book of embroidery stitches and will be practising a whole lot more before anyone sees any actually stitching.

Today’s project involves layering fabrics and using both heat n bond and fabric glue. Now that’s something I can handle. It still wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be but it was a heck of a lot of fun and it kept me out of the Halloween candy. I’m officially obsessed with all things hoop art. And since Christmas is coming, my first project is all about reindeer and Christmas trees.

Fabric for DIY Christma



Cut out a piece of backing fabric larger than your hoop along with the shapes you’re planning to use. In this case, I used a tweed skirt for the backing that I found at the thrift store. Way cheaper than buying fabric. For the cut outs, I used two reindeer and the Christmas tree to make three hoops and loosely cut the shapes from the fabric.

You can either attach the cut outs directly to the backing with fabric glue or use Heat n Bond to on the back of the fabric. I used the Heat n Bond when there were tiny details that needed to be cut and trimmed as the stiffness of the Heat n Bond makes the fabric easier to cut.

Trim the cut outs and align on the backing.

Attach the fabric cut outs to the backing either by ironing if using Heat n Bond or by painting on a thin layer of fabric glue and laying the piece(s) where you’d like them to sit.

Because you’re not actually stitching the back doesn’t require covering.

Trim your embroidery fabric so that it fits in the hoop without any over hang and attach a ribbon to the top of the hoop for hanging.
