DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament

2 Materials
30 Minutes
This Christmas Ornament idea has been in my mind for the past few months. For me, ideas for projects come to me in many different forms, during the wrong seasons and in round about ways. When I made my free fall printable, I loved the simplicity of the wreath I put on there. Then, when I was searching for wreaths and finally came up with the DIY wreaths for the chairs we hung in our entry, an idea for a Christmas ornament came to mind.
This Christmas ornament was so easy to make.
I started off by staining all of the embroidery hoops in Dark Walnut stain.
Once they were dry, I traced the hoops onto pieces of fabric from a Christmas garland I was not going to use anymore. (You could use any fabric or paper you had for this. I cut up a plaid scarf for the extra hoops I had and loved them just as much!)
I cut out the circles that I traced and hot glued them to the back of the hoops.
Then, I hot glued a piece of garland to the inside “ledge” of the embroidery hoop. Next, I hot glued a tiny pine cone and some wood beads onto the garland. 
Then, I tied some just twine into a bow and hot glued it to the top of the embroidery hoop.
Last, I tied jute twine or baker’s twine around the top of the Christmas ornament to make the “hanger” for the tree. 
That’s it!

I love the way they turned out! They look amazing in the Christmas tree!
