In this post: Make your own quick antler embroider hoop art with some scrap fabric and a Sharpie!

Since I’ve been traveling lately I’ve not really created anything new. In fact, it felt a little odd to go through the process of getting out supplies, spreading them across the dining room table, creating, styling and photographing this little project. But I was happy to ‘break the ice” and get back to creating with this quick antler embroidery hoop art.

This little project was actually inspired by Tina who made similar hoop art and shared them on Instagram 🙂




1. Trace around the embroidery hoops onto fabric. Cut circles out just outside pencil lines.

2. Take embroidery hoops apart. Place fabric over smaller circle. Place larger circle (the one with the screw adjustment) over the fabric and press down. Tighten the screw. Trim any excess fabric on back side of embroidery hoop.

3. Either freehand or trace antlers onto fabric. I did this on the back side, so any errors wouldn’t show.

4. Outline antlers with the Sharpie on back side of fabric. Then flip over and trace antlers again on the right side. Color in with the Sharpie. Be careful to use a light hand to avoid bleeding on the fabric.

A little 🖤 for Home Made Lovely

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
