Craft Idea #8

This craft idea, Embroidery Hoops, is so easy to make, and look how great they look. The directions I found called for sewing, but I think glue would work well too.

You will need embroidery hoops in different sizes, felt in holiday colors, extra material scraps, embroidery thread, needles, pink and red buttons, sticky fabric glue or a hot glue gun with glue stickers and scissors. I don't sew, but this craft would be manageable even for me.

And if you don't want to sew, use the glue. I really like these. They might be nice with handprints in them. They would last forever and a Grandmother would really, really appreciate this gift idea! (Hint Hint)
