Embroidery Hoop Easter Eggs

Need some simple decorations for your Easter get-together this weekend? I have you covered! This is a post I did for Crafting a Green World, but I knew you guys would love it as well. You will need oval embroidery hoops (my mom got these for me at a garage sale-- pictured below), fabric, scissors, a hot glue gun/hot glue, and buttons (or other decorations for your "eggs").


How To Do It:

1. Separate the two hoops by loosening the screw on the side. Insert the fabric of your choice in between the two hoops and then tighten the screw. I used felt that I got from a friend (I love free stuff!).

 
2. Cut off all of the excess fabric. Your hoops should look like this once you're done trimming:


3. Add your buttons or other accessories on your "eggs" with hot glue. I kept mine pretty simple by just adding buttons, but you could also add ribbon, other fabric, etc. Have fun with it and get creative! Here are the yellow buttons I added to the purple egg:



And here are the red buttons I added to the yellow egg:

 
Once you finish adding all of the accessories, you're done! 


You could hang these up as wall art or you could display them on your table for a cute centerpiece. Where would you put your embroidery hoop Easter eggs?
