Inspired by Embroidery Hoops

embroidery hoops wall decor

I loved the embroidery hoop guestbook from this wedding I shared this morning and I thought today would be the perfect day to share a bunch of great embroidery hoop ideas for decor I’ve been collecting. :) Such a fun DIY element that can be incorporated in so many ways and I hope these ideas inspire even more great ideas! The fun collection of hoops above is from The Purl Bee.

They can be used as signs for the dessert table…
