Growing up my mom always encouraged my sisters and I to make something at Christmas to give to grandparents or friends. 

I still find there is something really meaningful about taking the time to create a craft for someone else or to just decorate my house with. 

Making DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments was by no means my idea originally but it’s a great craft to start with and you can make it as easy or challenging as you want!!! 

All you need is some embroidery hoops (around a $1 each at your local craft store), scrap fabric (I raided my thrift store donation bags), and some embroidery thread.

Supplies Needed for DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments

  • embroidery hoops (various sizes)
  • scrap fabric (being of Scottish heritage, I personalized mine with our family’s clan color)
  • embroidery thread
  • String to hang

I used tartan (LOVE tartan), velvet, and wool fabric for my ornaments.

The plaid tartan and velvet were from a hand-me down Christmas dress that Audrey would never have worn and the wool from a sweater that no longer fits Jason.

I made the velvet and tartan ones years ago but I made the green Christmas tree this year. 

These are crazy easy to make I wasn’t even sure I needed to add any instruction but I did!

Step by Step Instructions for How to Make DIY Embroidery Hoop Ornaments

Step ONE – Place your Fabric in the Embroidery Hoop

Place your fabric inside of the hoop and cut around the back of the hoop.  Pretty self explanatory. ūüôā 

That’s all I did for my tartan one above.

Step TWO – Creating a Christmas Tree with Embroidery Thread

Using embroidery thread I stitched around the tree I cut out.

I embroidered the “L” to my black velvet ornament. 

I love the contrast of the white thread against the black velvet.

Step THREE – Hang your DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament

I hung our embroidery hoop Christmas ornaments with raffia.

I hung our ornaments inside on our old door turned coat rack till we get our Christmas tree. 

I think they look prettier there than the coats do!

Update – I created more DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments. I hung one DIY embroidery hoop Christmas ornament from our DIY Pallet Wreath.

I personalized them using the fabric from my childhood Scottish kilt with our family’s clan color and hung them on our Christmas tree.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve Eve :).  Before all the Christmas wrapping, teddy bear bread making, and holiday punch drinking was over I wanted to share our family room Christmas tour and talk a little bit about all the Christmas tree craziness at our farmhouse this year. #christmastree
