Add in­stant heir­loom charm by turn­ing an em­broi­dery hoop into art! “I love the vin­tage feel of the cameo with the del­i­cate cro­cheted doily,” says blog­ger Amy Bell at Pos­i­tively Splen­did.com. “It’s a pretty lit­tle craft project to dis­play in your home or present as a thought­ful gift—and it’s in­cred­i­bly easy and fun to make!”

1Paint

the outer ring of the em­broi­dery hoop red. Let dry com­pletely. Fit the square scrap of fabric into the hoop, stretch­ing it taut. Tighten the clamp at the top of the hoop to se­cure. 2Trim ex­cess fabric to 1/2" around the hoop. Use pink­ing shears if pos­si­ble to min­i­mize fray­ing. 3Fold cut edges of the fabric onto the back of the hoop and se­cure with hot glue.

4Ap­ply

a bunch of very small dots of hot glue to the back of the doily and press it onto the cen­ter of the front of the stretched fabric. Pin the brooch in the cen­ter of the doily and tie baker’s twine into a bow around the top metal clamp.

You can make this su­per-easy project in about a halfhour with just a few ba­sic craft sup­plies! — Amy Bell at Pos­i­tivelysplen­did. com
