Getting Crafty for Christmas


Making homemade ornaments is a wonderful way to update a tree and they can make great gifts as well. We prefer simple and stylish ornaments of course and it doesn’t hurt when they are affordable too. One super simple and budget-friendly idea is the oldie, but always classic Embroidery Hoop Ornament. Get the steps from Holly Mathis below, and see the rest of her holiday decor here.

Materials and Tools Needed

  • Small Embroidery Hoops
  • Fabric
  • Scissors

  1. Find a small-scaled fabric you love; for Holly it was classic tartan fabrics easily found at craft stores.
  2. Gather several small sizes of embroidery hoops – 3” to 6” are the best. Varying sizes add interest.
  3. Then insert the fabric in the hoops one by one and pull the fabric until taut.
  4. Trim the edges and hang!
