Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins

Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins

When it comes to Fall I am a bit obsessed with pumpkins. I realized that most of my Fall decor is pumpkin related in some way. What can I say, I love pumpkins.

While I was browsing Jo-ann Craft Store I ran across this awesome orange and aqua chevron fabric. If you know me, you know I love aqua!!! My whole living room is aqua-ed out, so by default it becomes part of my seasonal decor. I was so excited for the combination of the two colors that I grabbed the fabric and threw it in the cart. I had no idea what I was going to do with it…but knew I needed it. Then inspiration hit and I decided to create these Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins.

For the supplies all I needed was…….

3 embroidery hoops of varying sizes

3 different fabrics

I matched up which fabrics I wanted with the different sizes of hoops, of course going with the chevron as the largest hoop. Adding fabric to embroidery hoops is super easy, just make sure you pull your fabric really tight to have a nice crisp look.

Once the fabric is in and the hoop is put back together, you’ll need to trim all the excess fabric. I used some fabric scissors to cut around the hoop.

I repeated steps 1 & 2 for all three hoops.

I wanted to add a little ribbon to the tops of the hoops for the “vines”. I picked three ribbons in coordinating colors and double knotted them.

That’s it. For under $20 and 20 minutes you have three adorable Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins.

  1. Never would have thought of that. I love it and from my old cross stitch days I probably have the rings! Great job.

  2. Hi Courtney, I am delighted to have found your blog. I followed the step-by-step instructions and I’m glad that I made it. I wished I can attach it here in my comment to show it to you. Thanks for the inspiration.
