Embroidery Hoop Frame

Just like so many others I’m a huge fan of farmhouse signs. They are so simple, but yet pack a punch when decorating in a farmhouse style. I also really like the way people are making wall hangings and wreaths with embroidery hoops that are so popular right now. I decided to combine the two ideas and create a round sign and make an embroidery hoop frame. Turned out to be so easy and I love the results.

Cozy Christmas Frame

For Christmas this year I’ve been decorating in a cozy cabin kind of feel which includes the popular buffalo checks and plaids and woodsy types of elements. Here’s a peek of some of our decor. I hope to get a small home tour up tomorrow.

I thought it might be fun to cover a craft store frame with a wool sweater to add to my decor, so I went to my local thrift store and found a 100% wool sweater and washed it to shrink it. They call this technique “felting” because it shrinks the fibers and makes it feel more like felt. I’m thrilled with how my Cozy Christmas Frame came out. Here’s what I came up with.

Well, I pinned it awhile ago thinking, “Oh my gosh!! I just fell in love with it!! I love the quote. I love the styling. Just everything!! Most of the time I pin something and it gets forgotten and hidden away in my thousands of pins. (I’m not the only one that does this right!?) But I could not get this out of my head! There wasn’t a tutorial for it either, so I had to figure out how to put this together. I knew this was a book page blown up, but guys I have no idea how to do that! “LIGHT BULB!” I knew staples did engineer prints so WHA-LA instant blown up book page! YAY!

Frame Facelifts

Sometimes I get tired of the same old frames that you can find everywhere.  I have found that it’s fun to dress up a frame to match the décor you have or the project you are working on.

How about adding some twine, rope, or yarn to a cheap frame to add a nautical or masculine feel.
