Bright Idea: Decorating with Embroidery Hoops

When you think embroidery hoops, you might think of, well, embroidery. For those of you who, like me, don't have the patience to finish embroidering ANYTHING, I have great news... those inexpensive embroidery hoops have many other uses! Known as "swatch portraits", embroidery hoops adorned with fabric are an excellent way to liven up a boring wall. Check out the DIY here.

Wall space already full? Try hanging them horizontally from the ceiling!

If you're not feeling the swatch portraits... try using the embroidery hoops to make a mobile for your favorite little one.
