Buffalo Plaid Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament Tutorial
I created these beautiful ornaments using a trendy Buffalo Plaid print, but they can be customized for any tree and decor. I think it would be so much fun to make these with friends or with our kids!
Every year, I try to make a homemade ornament idea because I love decorating my tree with them, and they’re fun present toppers or small gift ideas. These DIY embroidery hoop ornaments are some of my favorite I’ve ever made, so cute, so easy and so FUN!
This year’s Christmas theme is black and white and buffalo check. I have to confess I couldn’t stay with just the black and white so I added a few accents here and there that you will see soon on the coming posts.
Today’s project is a super easy diy, you can have it done within minutes and there’s no need to have fancy tools. It can also be very low budget if you have most supplies at home. I only had to buy cheap embroidery hoops (just for some ornaments I didn’t need fancy ones).
Now that I’m done, I think I should have made more of these I just LOVE how they look! I made 2 types of embroidery hoop ornaments. These ones with Buffalo plaid fabric and others with a painted monogram. I just love them.
What is embroidery hoop used for?
Embroidery hoops and frames are tools used to keep the fabric taut while working embroidery or other forms of needlework but they have got a lot of popularity for other fun crafts besides embroideries such as wreaths, wall arts, ornaments, and much more.
What makes embroidery hoops so popular?
The versatility. There are so many things you can do with them and we don’t think about it as a craft supply or tool very often unless you actually love embroidery. But the truth is that they can be a GREAT tool and a basic supply for any crafter.
How to Make a Buffalo Plaid Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament
Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament Supplies:
- Embroidery hoop (the size of your choice, I used big and small embroidery hoops to make it fun)
- Buffalo plaid fabric (or your favorite one, even scrap fabric works too)
- Burlap Ribbon (light beige, almost white)
- Different Ribbons of your choice in different sizes (I used darker burlap with buffalo check and white grosgrain).
- Snowflake embellishment.
- Hot glue gun and glue stick.
- Optional greenery, berries or any extra decoration you love.
I’ve made this cute and quick video tutorial for you. However, if you are more of a photo step-by-step kind of person just scroll down and keep reading!
Preppin your supplies
Firstly, measure your embroidery hoop and cut your fabric about an inch larger. You can use any type of fabric, what’s important is that you love it. I’ve even seen some ornaments made with old sweaters and I think it’s so cute!
Take the embroidery hoop apart and for now, place the inside hoop on a flat surface.
Assembling your Embroidery Hoop Ornament
Place the fabric on top of the ring as centered as possible.
Then cut a piece of your light burlap and place it over the fabric centered.
Cut a piece of the next size ribbon, the same width as the previous one. Please it over the burlap ribbon also centered.
Press the outside hoop in place over the fabric.
Tighten the screw on the embroidery hoop and pull fabric until the fabric is tight. Be careful in this step to not distort the plaid pattern.
Decorating the Ornament
With the ribbon (in my case, white grosgrain ribbon) make a cute ribbon bow.
Glue the snowflake of your favorite embellishment in the center of the bow. Set aside for a moment.
Cut carefully all the remaining fabric from the back of the embroidery hoop
Now glue the bow to the center of your embroidery hoop design.
Cut a piece of ribbon bow ribbon (the same used for the bow) and pass it through the embroidery hoop screw space. Make a tight knot with the ends to create the hanger.
There you go!
You can make as many as you want with as many different sizes as you desire!
Imagination is your limit! You can adapt this Christmas ornament to your Christmas tree theme and reuse the embroidery hoop over and over again.
Isn’t it cute?
