Embroidery Hoop Art: Fall In Love With This Gorgeous Ivy Garland!

Looking for a fresh and exciting way to breathe life into your home decor this spring? Look no further! The fabulously talented Penelope Quinn shows you exactly how to create this stunning embroidery hoop art project using only a handful of craft supplies, and foliage scavenged from your own back garden! Check out Penelope’s straightforward step-by-step below, and discover just how easy it is!

This is an easy and pretty way to bring the outside in, this spring! Celebrate the best of the new greenery, and feel free to personalise your embroidery hoop project with what’s growing in your garden. I’ve decided to use real blooms and leaves – you can easily replace these when they start to wilt, however this idea would also work with fabric flowers.

You Will Need:

Step 1:

First, take a large hoop and measure your netting – it needs to be slightly larger than the hoop.

Step 2:

Place your netting it in between the hoops, and pull it taught, cutting off any excess.

Step 3:

Take your text stencil, and lay it under the netting. Using a light coloured pen, draw your design onto the netting.

Step 4:

I used a running stitch to attach the sequins to the net with gold thread, however you could also use glue.

Step 5:

Now it’s time to attach the flowers. Use fine florist wire to tie each piece of foliage to the hoop, threading through the holes in the florist wire.

And there you have it – this gorgeous piece of embroidery art will breathe instant life into your home decor, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside in time for spring! You could experiment with different foliage throughout the year , or even use artificial flowers so that your garland looks fabulous all year-round. If you’re feeling really creative why not create your own fabric or paper flowers to match this piece to your room decor? The possibilities really are endless!
