Nursery Craft: DIY Embroidery Hoop Wall Art

The nursery is almost put together!  After the mattress and changing table pad come by mail tomorrow, we’re pretty much finished.  So exciting!  This has been a fun process, it was my first time decorating a room from top to bottom.  I plan on doing a few posts on the process and thought I’d start with a fun one: DIY Embroidery Hoop Wall Art.  This project is low in cost and easy to do.  I absolutely love the finished product!  Since we don’t own our loft, we aren’t allowed to paint the boring white walls in the nursery, so these pops of color add a lot of cheer to the room.  In the center of the hoops we will add the wooden letters I painted in magenta that spell out baby girl’s name.

I got this wonderful idea from blogger Aedriel.

All you need are embroidery hoops, fabric, and scissors.  I bought 10 hoops in a variety of sizes from Michaels.  The fabric I picked out was from JoAnn Fabric, I bought 10 Fabric Quarters on sale for a total of $17.72.
