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. 

DIY Black & White Buffalo Plaid Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments

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.

How to Make Buffalo Plaid Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments

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.
  • Optional greenery, berries or any extra decoration you love.

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks.

Step 1: Prepping 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!

Step 2: 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.

Step 3: 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.

Crafting Tips

There’s no need to calculate and cut a perfect circle to make these ornaments or assemble the hoops. You can just cut a square of fabric slightly larger than the hoop, decorate it as you wish, and then assemble the embroidery hoop. Then turn it front side facing down and cut excess fabric as close to the hoop as possible.

Avoid using glue to assemble the ornament, so when Holiday is over, you can dismantle the ornament and reuse the embroidery hoops for another project.

If you don’t like the embroidery hoop clasp to be visible you can hide it using some cute greenery or a cute bow.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an embroidery hoop used for?

Embroidery hoops and frames are tools used to keep the fabric taut while working on 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 them 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.

Where can I find embroidery hoops?

Most likely in a craft store especially those that sell embroidery supplies but you can also get embroidery hoops in department stores in the craft section, Michaels, amazon and why not check in dollar trees too, and thrift stores and second-hand shops?

What type of fabric do you use?

You can use any type of fabric that you love. Between you and me, the plaid fabric just rocks! But you can use fleece, felt, cotton, solid color, or your favorite patterned ones.

Can I use different ribbons?

Absolutely! You can go for pretty grosgrain ribbons to satin, organza, yarn, twine, and anything else your creativity calls for! If you happen to go for a solid fabric then a buffalo check ribbon would be a hit!

Do I need to know how to do embroidery to make these ornaments?

Absolutely not! In this case, the embroidery hoop is only the tool to create cute ornaments. You just need to decorate what you are going to use for the hoops.
