I love this idea! I saw something similar in a shop in Ann Arbor recently. They had glued the edges of the hoops together in a grid pattern and hung it in a window frame as a kind of shade.

That's very interesting! I've never thought of using them for decoration. Thanks for sharing!

This is phenomenal! I *just* unloaded some 15 embroidery hoops from my mother in law so I could decorate with them -- I was thinking of just connecting the innerhoop to make a lightweight "sculpture," if you will, to hang on the wall -- but these are so lovely! Thanks for being *psychic*! (hee)

Thanks for this post! I've long been a fan of embroidery hoops for decoration and it's fun to see all the different ways people have used them! I've gotta save some of these to my inspiration files! : )

A very lovely friend gave us some hoops with gorgeous fabrics for a wedding present and this post just gave me the inspiration I needed to hang them. Thank you!

oh! I have some of these in my guest bedroom over the bed. I think its a great way to get a graphic color punch on the wall.

lovely post!

These are really beautiful. What a great way of sprucing up a room and using left-over fabric. The instant injection of colour is fabulous.

OH.MY.GOSH. Last week I saw a TON of hoops at a Salvation Army and KNEW I could do something with them. This is such an awesome post. I agree with eco-stylista, you ARE psychic!!

Thank you so much!

I love the ones on the dark wall. I've only seen them on light walls and I think it looks fantastic on the dark. It's a great way to save all your favourite fabrics.

fun! Who knew it was becoming such a trend...

This is a lovely idea :) also if the person feel like a change they can just change the fabric in the hoop.

Thanks for the great inspirational post

These hoop art ideas are awesome! I am gonna have a wall with them hanging by the end of the next weekend. Whoever thought up this idea is a genius.
