Embroidery Hoop Door Hanger

Embroidery hoop door hanger. Create this easy and beautiful Christmas door hanger. #christmasdecor #christmasdiy.

I’m excited to share this embroidery hoop door hanger I made for our home last year. The best part about this project is that it can be done without a Cricut or Silhouette. This embroidery hoop door hanger is a festive way to welcome family and friends to your home! This project is easy enough to customize and make a few at a time as gifts for friends I hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Materials – all items were purchased at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, & Ulster Linen)

Directions

  1. Lay your embroidery hoop on top of your fabric and trim your fabric down so it’s just slightly larger than your hoop (including the thickness of the hoop).
  2. Place the fabric in between the two hoops, making sure to keep the tightening device at the top and center of your layout. Tighten the device and pull on the fabric on all sides. Pick one place to start and work your way around the hoop.
  3. Turn the hoop over so you are looking at the back. Trim the extra fabric off the back off the embroidery hoop.
  4. Select the letter you would like to use. Center it in the hoop. I peeled the sticker backing to keep it in place then used two very small black stitches to keep it in place.
  5. Cut your desired length of ribbon, string, or bakers twine and make a large loop through the tightening device at the top of the hoop.
  6. Add any extra finishing touches or leave as is. I hung ours on the front door or added them to Christmas gifts as an extra decoration.

Linen + lockdown: At home with linen craft

Linen Hoop and needle

We noticed that many of our customers are choosing to spend their time at home during the Covid-19 pandemic by getting linen crafty. Many textile artists have turned to us to provide the perfect linen by the yard for their linen craft; needlework, hand & machine embroidery, rug hooking, toweling, cross stitching, and crewelwork.

Learning a new skill can be a frustrating endeavor at first. A lesser quality fabric or tool can often make linen crafting a difficult undertaking. Which is a shame because it can really discourage a beginner from continuing! Ulster Linen is 100% devoted to superior linen. We believe material matters. Every part of linen matters, from the flax and where it’s grown, to where and how it’s woven. Linen is literally all we carry and care about!

Linen Craft Community

Occasionally, I get a chance to browse the blogs and websites of some of our consumers. When visiting our clients we find it is such a treat to see the beautiful textiles and artwork they produce on our linen!

This is why we love it when you considered any of our linens for your next project. For that reason we ask you to share pictures of the process or completed projects. Linen is beautiful on its own, but is often a background for some gorgeous works of art. If linen by the yard isn’t your thing, we carry a range of hand towels & handkerchiefs that you can personalize and keep or give to a loved one.

All our linens are expertly woven to produce an even weave and soft feel. The reason Ulster Linen’s is asked for by name time and time again is our consistent high quality. Whether you are a textile artist, linen craft enthusiast, historic reproduction company, or designer, we believe that Ulster Linen fabrics are the best choice for your project’s needs. We hope you agree!
