Hanging Embroidery Hoop Wall Decor Trio

Emily used papers and embellishments from the Field Notes collection, along with other assorted flowers and trims to create this pretty home decor grouping. She used papers, instead of fabric to fill the embroidery hoops.

"Try to find new uses for common items. Embroidery hoops are trendy, easy to hang and come in a variety of sizes. Best of all you can change out the decor for different seasons or styles."

"To create the backdrop base for the hoop, trace around the outside of the larger hoop. Trim the circle a little bit larger than the traced circle. Trim small slits around the entire circle being careful not to go beyond the traced inner circle. Secure paper to hoop with a strong adhesive."

"Modeling paste creates some fun texture. Apply it with your finger tip to the patterned paper. Now, if you're like me, you'll not want to wait for it to dry. I sped up the drying process with my heat gun."
