One sees these in every designer shop these days – lovely old world orbs. They’re perched on top of books, nestled in a planter with ivy, or perched upon a candlestick. Well, here’s how you can get that same look at home for merely the cost of a few embroidery hoops.
3 embroidery hoops, all the same size
If desired, stain your embroidery hoops. Separate the inner and outer rings and stain them on all sides and edges. I think the natural blond wood is beautiful, so if you’re not in the mood to get your hands dirty, than don’t!
Place one of the inner hoops crosswise inside one of the outer hoops. Secure in place with hot glue at top and bottom.
Place another interior hoop inside the first two, dividing the space between the two into thirds. Again, secure with hot glue.
Take an exterior hoop and place it over the first three hoops positioning it between the last one and the first one. Secure with hot glue.
Take the remaining out hoop and loosen the latch. Place it around the middle of the assembled hoop (this may take a little persuasion). Once in place, tighten the latch and add a drop of hot glue where the hoop comes in contact with the other hoops. You’ll have one inner hoop left over.
Arrange them as you will!
