Plain wire mesh containers are perfect for embroidery! Get creative with the designs you make on them. I am not a professional embroiderer but had fun experimenting with these easy designs.
How to Embroider Desk Accessories
Plain wire mesh desk accessories are a staple at office supply stores. You may already have a mesh pencil cup, magazine file, or even trash bin on hand. If so, you can give it a craft touch by embroidering it with yarn! The holes in the mesh make a perfect canvas for all sorts of creative embroidery. I love using yarn in unique ways that doesn't require knitting or crocheting. Don't miss all the rest of my Simple Yarn Craft Ideas!
Desk Accessories Embroidered with Yarn
- Wire mesh desk accessories (office supply stores have them)
- Pointed darning needle
Thread the yarn through a darning needle with a pointed end. You'll want to find a needle that has a hole big enough for the yarn but is thin enough to fit through the mesh holes. Pull the yarn through one of the holes and tie a knot to secure.
Try out different designs like this zig zag pattern.
