Embroidery hoops aren’t just for knitting – there are so many other decorative options for them. In our daycare, we use them for learning, activities and classroom decor.
For this activity, you will need a large hoop and some ribbons. A charity shop/thrift store or any second-hand store is a great place to get your ribbons. We get our ribbons from Goodwill and Joann Fabrics (when they are on sale).
Cut ribbons to length. Some can be shorter or longer to the look you want.
Staple ribbons around the hoop – use a small stapler, it gets in the groove better.
After all the ribbons are attached make a loop to hang the fixture. I made loops by attaching a ribbon at three corners, joining them together like a triangle, then knotting them.
Hang in your ceiling and that’s it. Easy peasy… 🙂
Here it hangs while another hoop project is showing on the wall.
My frugal shopping has shown me that these hoops are normally cheaper at a second-hand store than a retail store. Have fun making these beauties. If you operate a daycare as I do – stock up on these when you see them, they make beautiful crafts – Miss Sue.
