Easy Embroidery Hoop Ornaments

3 Materials
10 Minutes

These 10-minute ornaments are super simple and look fantastic on the tree!

Start by grabbing two embroidery hoops, and disassembling them. I used 3" hoops.

Take the two hoops without screws, and place one inside of the other.

Add a screwed piece, and tighten the screw as much as you can.

Finally, add the last screwed piece around the center of the sphere, tightening the screw to hold everything in place.

For some extra pizzazz, grab your favorite holiday spray paint, and paint the hoops. I typically do this in a cardboard box, so the paint doesn't get everywhere (and I don't have to go outside!)

You can also stain the hoops before starting, if you'd prefer a wood-look.

Lastly, tie some twine around the ornament to hang it on the tree! Then the ornament is done! Easy, right?

I love how these turned out, and especially love how easy they are to make! If you think you might make them too, be sure to check out the blog post.

    Hi there, Great idea I wll try it for outdoor birds and try to fit a fat ball inside. I suppose that should be nice .

    We used to make these, but tied a ribbon up top to hang from a doorway. They'd be painted red and stuffed with a sprig of faux mistletoe.
