Hoop art is extremely popular these days. It is so easy and fun to do too. I don't know if you ever caught any of the ones I featured in Crafty Weekends in the past. There have definitely been some creative and beautiful ideas shared! Today I am going to share a book with tutorials to make your own hoop art. It is Hoops Hooray! by Ashley Millhouse.
Hoops Hooray! - Creative Ideas for Embroidery Hoops and More
This book has tutorials for over 15 different hoop creations. Most are very easy to complete and often with materials the average crafter has at home. I love how easy these are to make and since you pick up embroidery hoops for pretty cheap they are fairly inexpensive projects. I decided to try a few for you. I started with the Doily Dream Catcher, but I of course made changes. Here is the one featured in the book.

I found some lace doilies on sale for pretty cheap and bought two sizes. I used two different size hoops and made matching ones and then of course lost the larger one so all I have to show you is the mini one. I loved the scalloped edge on mine so I kept it and didn't add the strings to make it an actual dreamcatcher.

I think it makes a beautiful decoration for the wall though. When I find my larger one I can hang them together. I wanted to play with the Everyday Wreath and the Felt Flower Hoop and combine them a bit. I had found these grapevine hoops on clearance. Instead of making the felt flowers I decided to use paper ones that I made from a kit from Paper Source.

We have it hanging in our family room now. I love it. I also love the Gerber daisies I made. The one I really wanted to make was the Simple Pocket Organizer. Now the funny thing is I kept putting it off because I didn't want to do the sewing on my machine and there is not any sewing on the machine. The only sewing is a simple baste stitch by hand and then a whip stitch to finish the back.

Spending so much time at home with everyone home all day, I decided to create a corner for myself. I have this hanging to hold a pen, a notepad and a place to put my reading glasses since I'm always looking for a pair. I used fabric from a dress I made Hazel and her doll a few years ago when we went down to Disney. It has my favorite colors and makes me happy to look at it. Here is how the back is finished.

The book has so many creative projects from décor and wreaths to useful organizers and more. This book has great ideas for wall art without spending lots of money including simple ones like the one to the left below. I found the instructions to be very easy to follow and it really completed the project for each one.

All you need are embroidery hoops and fabrics you love. There are also tutorials to make felt flowers and succulents for hoops like this one.

They also have mobiles and this BOHO Ribbon Chandelier. How fun would this be in a special space, little girls room or for a party?

They even have some gift tag ideas. I love the red heart one and had been planning on making that one but never quite got there.

How fun would one of these be to give a gift card in? It would be a little extra besides the gift card and so easy to do and inexpensive! So if you are looking for some simple, fun and inexpensive craft and décor ideas, be sure to check out Hoops Hooray!
