Each year in the Oh Creative Day household, we challenge ourselves to create a different Christmas tree.
You can see some of our previous creations in this post.
My love of embroidery hoops is pretty well-known.
HOW have we NEVER had an embroidery hoop tree before?!
It’s super easy and super cute.
Here’s what you’ll need…
I decided to go with 11 smaller-sized embroidery hoops.
You could choose to go with a variety of sizes. You could choose to go with more hoops if you wish to create a larger tree.
I laid out my hoops in a tree shape on the floor of the aisle in Spotlight. Mainly because I have no shame, but also to ensure that I had the right number for the shape I had in mind.
My tree measures a nice and compact 67cm from top to bottom.
I bought a variety of fabric flats and this delightful kangaroo fabric.
Kangaroos in Santa hats just screams JOLLY, right?
Cut a rectangular piece of fabric out and lay it over the inner hoop.
Slide the outer hoop over the top and tighten into position.
No need for perfect finishes as this side will obviously be against the wall.
However, you do want the excess to be trimmed as closely as possible to the hoop so that it sits flush against the wall.
You can choose to thread ribbon between the hoops before tightening the outer hoop.
You could peg some festive photos to the ribbon, perhaps?
You can see on my tree that I’ve hung some decorations over my hoops.
It’s up to you, really!
The trickiest part of this whole project is definitely the hanging stage.
It helps if you can rope in somebody to help.
(It’s also immensely helpful if said person has a leveller to ensure your hoops are straight!)
Definitely mark out in pencil where you intend to hang the adhesive hooks.
We hung ours just out-of-reach of the little hands of our 2-year-old.
What’s the Tree Tradition at your place?
This looks absolutely beautiful! Such imagination. I love the colours you have put together and kangaroo’s in santa hats are always a fav 😉
Thank you so much, Sandra! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
