I’ve long-loved the industrial look of wood or metal orbs. We have one out on the patio coffee table that’s made of metal. But even one picked up at Target can come with a price tag that is a little steep for such a simple piece.

Wooden embroidery hoops on the other hand are rather inexpensive. And these embroidery hoop orbs are quite easy to make.
