Simple Wall Art

I scored a bunch of old sewing hoops a month or so ago at a local thrift store. 

I don't sew but I thought they could be used to hold fabric wall art.

Something like this:

So one down, about 10 more to go.  Some hoops are big, some are small and some are oval.

I don't think I want to use them all this way.  Any ideas on what else I could do with these?


  1. i think YOU could put anything on it and make it cute.

    and i also think that i NEED something like that. very cute!


  2. What a great blog! I love what you do with burlap - your wreaths are dreamy!

  3. great idea! if you're looking to do a whole wall, with a few hoops, you could vary the fabrics to get a nice (no-sew) effect.

    but i do also love the flowers you have shown above :)

  4. Sorry, I've got no new ideas for the hoops, but I wanted to say I love what you've done. Think it looks great.

  5. Hi Aaron, This is good. You could take several more, keeping all the colors neutral and have a collage on a wall mixed with some frames, just frames, no pictures or backing, that would be a conversation piece. You can take pictures and apply them to fabric in a number of ways and frame those as well. Imagine, imagine, thanks for the inspiration and I sew!

  6. really cute idea, love those hoops and of course those great burlap flowers!
    Thanks for linking up with VIF!

  9. This looks so lovely. I look forward to you stopping by at My Dream Canvas:-)

  10. I have in my "To Do" file using the outside ring and putting 2 pairs of curtains on it, putting ribbon on each side where the curtains meet and haning it from a pot hook over a bed. Hope spring will get me going on some of my to do things. ~~Sherry~~

  11. Love this! I used to use those hoops for mobiles and hung my paper flowers from them! Thank you for sharing with air your laundry Friday!
