Simple, Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins

Here's a fast and super simple project you can finish just in time for Halloween! And the best part is you can keep it up through Thanksgiving to give your house that great, fall feel! Chances are also good that, if you're a craft nerd like me, you probably have all or most of the materials required to create this project! Check out the tutorial below to get started...


-embroidery hoops-I used three different sizes, 6", 8" and 10"
-fall or orange fabric cut into squares slightly larger than the corresponding hoops
-green raffia
-2 feet of ribbon or fabric strip
-glue gun and sticks


1. Place the fabric square on top of the inner ring of the embroidery hoop (aka, the one without the metal parts) so that it is completely covered.
2. Place the outer ring on top of the fabric and inner ring and tighten using the screw at the top so that fabric is taut.
3. Repeat this process for the two remaining rings.
4. Trim the excess fabric from around the ring so that no extra fabric remains.

5. Tie about 4 strings of raffia around the tops of each embroidery hoop into a bow.

6. Lay the fabric strip or ribbon across the backs of the embroidery hoops with 2-4" in between each hoop. Leave about 5" above the smallest hoop to create a loop from which to hang the decoration. Glue the fabric strip or ribbon to the backs of each hoop and at the bottom of the loop.

Hang and enjoy!

Happy Halloween, goblins and ghouls!!!
