embroidery hoop chalkboard

We’ve seen embroidery hoop chalkboard art trending all over blog land (and Pinterest, of course) and still going hot since sharing this tutorial here but this is our first time personally testing it out. The verdict is in, you guys: we LOVE it! We attended a local craft night a few months ago and learned from the best, Recipe For Crazy! Her hoops are  just darling!

  • Cut coordinating fabric into 18″ strips.
  • Wrap first fabric strip at the base of the hoop, no gluing required, just keep wrapping.
  • At the end, use a little piece of double sided tape to hold it. (Hot glue if desired, optional.)
  • Cut chalkboard vinyl to size.
  • Place vinyl inside hoop, tighten.
  • Chalk it up, get creative!
  • (Note: Season vinyl first by rubbing chalk across vinyl once, erase then chalk away!)

That’s all there is to it! We love it hanging in Kelli’s craft room above her vintage cart but it’d look great mixed in with her embroidery hoop wall, too!

  1. i love the chalk board hoop idea but im confused. you say to get scrap material. but you mention chalk board vinyl material. where would i find chalk board vinyl? fabric stores?? or can you get scrap material and chalk board paint and paint material? please let me know.

    1. Hi Leslie,
      Thanks for popping by and glad you like the project. For this project we had a scrap piece from a larger piece of the chalkboard vinyl (“blackboard fabric” as it’s technically called) but you can snag a piece to make this hoop art at Joann’s for around $4… or less if you use your 40% coupon! 😉 Fabric sections or stores will also carry it!


      I wouldn’t paint over fabric as I don’t think the chalk would erase as well but you can try it! Holler for questions! Thanks
