Embroidery hoop spheres

If you’ve ever seen our craft room, you would have noticed our collection of embroidery hoops aaaand since we have a bunch of tacks left over from Kelli’s Restoration Hardware vintage industrial letter knock off project, I decided to combine the stash of hoops with the tacks and whipped up what turned into a few embroidery hoop spheres in no time!

These were really easy to make but look pricey!

Supplies to make your own Embroidery Hoop Spheres via lollyjane.com

You’ll need just a few supplies to make your own set:

  • 4 sets of 4″ embroidery hoops, (4 hoops for each sphere)
  • Elmers ProBond Advance (or Wood Glue Max)
  • Elmers Clamp Tape
  • Thumb tacks x4
  • Stain or paint (we used Americana’s gel stain in Maple)
  • Foam brush

These little hoops can be a bit tricky to put together so we bonded them together one hoop at a time so the spheres are very sturdy.

A few tips while creating your own hoop spheres…

  • Make 3 hoops look like an atom; of those 3 hoops only one should have the hardware on it.
  • Use the 4th hoop (when wrapping around the “atom” shaped hoops) to screw in between the other hoop that has hardware on it.
  • If you encounter a little gap like I did on one side simply squeeze a small amount of Elmers ProBond Advance in between the gap then wrap a 2″ strip of Elmers Clamp Tape until dry and those pieces are stuck firmly together.
  • Lightly stain (or paint) your sphere and for an added industrial look, press a tack into the intersection where the 3 “atom” hoops meet. I used a small hammer to get those suckers in!
  • Place individually on top of books in a bookcase or in a bowl with moss balls or mini globes. Lots of cute possibilities! ;)
