10 New Uses For Embroidery Hoops - Part 2 of 2

BlogHer Original Post

Have you been waiting with baited breath for tonight's follow up post 5 MORE things you can do with an embroidery hoop besides embroider?  As if the projects from last night's post was not clever enough (laundry basket anyone?) brace yourself for clocks, picture frames & more.

A wine cork trivet.  Get out of town.  Rachel from Lines Across never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.  I'm starting to amass a few wine corks, now I know what to do with them!

Positive reinforcement is a powerful thing.  I made this fun reward wheel for my daughter over on my blog Naughty Secretary Club.  Clothespins attached to a fabric covered embroidery hoop hold reward tickets earned for doing chores and good deeds.

Over at DIY by Design you can see how to convert an embroidery hoop and your favorite fabric into a wall clock.  I love the stitched on buttons in place of numbers.

Once upon a time Joann's craft stores hired me to do a project for them.  I came up with these embroidery hoop picture frames.  I did do a little embroidery on these, but you don't have to the stitching is only embellishment.  I love that fabric that will go through your printer.  So many crafty possibilities.

Christa over at C Jane Create rounds off our list with a seasonally appropriate option.  Poppin' embroidery hoop, fabric and jute pumpkins.  I want like a whole puffy pumpkin patch on my wall.  Such a good idea and so easy!

So what are you going to make with your embroidery hoops?  Want even more inspiration?  Check out this fun post about hoops from Everything Etsy.
