Hey, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start!

I'm popping in today to show you one of my favorite projects ever!

When I made these signs last year (see more of our signs at Little Lumber Co.), I knew immediately I wanted them above our couch. I grabbed a hammer and nails, put them up, and ran to the other side of the room to admire my work, then thought...

Hm.

Looks a little...empty.

I debated a thousand different ideas before finally deciding on making these greenery embroidery hoops to surround our signs.


It took some trial and error, but I'm finally finished AND I have a tutorial for you!

What you need:

Embroidery hoops (linked HERE or check your local craft store)
Flexible greenery stems (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
Hot glue gun
Hammer
Nails


Here's what you do:

→ Make sure your greenery stems are flexible. This means the stem bends easily. If they aren't, they'll pop right off the hoop.

→ I don't know this from experience or anything, just something I heard around town. 😉

→ Decide where you want your greenery on the hoop. I aimed for mine to cover the nails they would be sitting on. Glue in place and hold until glue is dry.

→ Hang on nails.



That's it. Ha! This probably didn't need a tutorial, but here we are. Enjoy it. 😊

pin for later!



Talk soon!
