DIY Embroidery Hoop Decor Orbs

2 Materials
30 Minutes

This is such a fun and quick little project. I’ve been seeing these home decor orbs in stores lately and the prices are just silly. I saw a little 4 inch orb for $19 the other day. It makes no sense to use those tiny, insignificant orbs when you can make something much larger and much more eye-catching so quickly and so cheaply! I thought I had to take a stand so today I’m going to show you how to make your own home decor orbs using simple embroidery hoops.

You can use whatever size hoops you like, but I used the 8″ size so I could have something really substantial. You’ll need to pick up three hoops.

The first thing you’ll need to do is to separate each hoop into its two parts.

Next, paint or stain all of the hoop pieces inside and out and let them dry.

Grab 4 hoop pieces and place them all together so they form a spherical shape. Use the other two hoops to hold everything into place... Easy-peasy, right?!

    I’ve see a lot of these orbs, store bought and DIY. I think yours are the best. The color, the character of the outside hoop. I’m going to try this with my vintage hoops. Thanks for sharing!
