Patriotic Hoops

To make these patriotic hoops, you’ll need:

4″ wooden embroidery hoops
Squares of felt
Cotton fabric
Embroidery Floss
Embroidery needle
School Glue or Hot Glue



Hoop the fabric. Trim it down to a manageable size.

Cut the felt to the size of the hoop.

cut felt

Cut the felt into a star shape. If you want something exact and less rustic, feel free to trace a star-shaped cookie cutter, or use a stencil.

Split the embroidery floss so that you’re using just 3 strands instead of all 6. Thread the needle. Tie a knot at the end. Start the needle up from the back, right next to the felt. Cross over the felt and stitch in.

Bring the needle back up next to the felt, catching the loop. Then take another stitch into the felt.

Go all the way around the star. I was able to quickly stitch around my star in about 10 minutes. Tie off the thread at the back. Then trim the fabric all the way around the hoop.

trim outer edge

Using school glue or hot glue, glue the inside edge of the hoop.

Secure the fabric to the inside of the hoop. If your fabric doesn’t stick well immediately, use clothespins to secure the fabric.

glue to back

Tie ribbon to the top to hang.

Make hoops in different patriotic colors to hang around for your 4th of July decor!
