Today, we’re sharing how to create two different farmhouse embroidery hoop gift tag ornaments.
These embroidery hoops can easily be used as gift tags, ornaments, place card holders on tablescapes or even placed on the bedroom door handles of guest rooms to help welcome your holiday guests!
Prepping for the Holidays at Bliss Barracks
The minute we got back home from the cabin I knew I would have to hit the ground running. Especially, where getting the house ready for the holidays was concerned.
Not only that, my parents have been in the process of giving their primary home, Bliss Barracks, a refresh. So, I’ve been driving back and forth from their house to mine to help.
Here’s a peek of the design board I created for them but haven’t shared on the blog yet.
Don’t get me wrong, my Mom can certainly make decisions on her own. But she’s very sweet to wait until I can physically see the changes before wholeheartedly committing to any of them.
In fact, by the time I got home from the cabin there was plenty of new things to see. That said, Bliss Barracks is a wreck right now but in the best possible way 😊
Most of the rooms downstairs have packages in them waiting to be opened. The living room is filled with tubs of garlands and ornaments. Their big Christmas tree waiting to be decorated and the dining room is being prepped for Thanksgiving dinner.
You might think I’m bananas, but these completely ordinary moments are some of my favorite memories to date because my Mom loves the holidays so much.
Saving Time Crafting Ornaments
Given she’s on a bit of a tight timeline, I offered to make my Mom a few ornaments for her tree while I was making some for my tree too.
She chose blues, greens and white this year and we kept with our beloved neutrals. You’ll see them both below.
As I’ve shared previously, I don’t have a lot of extra storage space at my house. So, whenever I’m crafting something new, I try to make sure that item can be used multiple ways.
Thankfully, these farmhouse embroidery hoop gift tag ornaments fit the bill perfectly. They can be used as gift tags, ornaments, place card holders at a festive tablescape or draped on the door handle to welcome holiday guests.
Bonus, they can easily customized to fit the colors in your home décor.
Here’s a look at how you can create a set of farmhouse embroidery hoop gift tag ornaments too…
Embroidery Hoop Gift Tag Ornament Supplies:
- Fabric (we used gray flannel fabric and an old blue and white shirt)
- Embroidery Hoop (we used 3-inch and 4-inch hoops)
- Iron and Ironing board/mat
- Iron on Monogram Letters (optional)
- Ribbon (optional)
- Fray Away/Fabric Glue (optional)
Embroidery Hoop Gift Tag Ornament Steps:
Gather your supplies and make sure your work surface is protected before starting this project.
Depending on the size of your embroidery hoop, you’ll need to measure and cut a square piece of fabric that is around 1-2 inches bigger than the hoop.
For example, we cut a 5×5 inch square for the gift tag ornaments made with the 3-inch embroidery hoop.
As always use caution and care when cutting your fabric as scissors will be sharp.
Next iron any wrinkles out of your fabric. Again, use caution and care as iron will be hot.
Once your fabric is wrinkle free, place the largest the hoop (the hoop that will be on the outside) on top of and in the middle of your fabric.
Place your iron on monogram in the center of the hoop and on top of the fabric. Then carefully, remove the hoop so you can iron the monogram onto the fabric.
Keep in mind, the pocket of the blue and white shirt already had a “C” monogrammed on it, but you could certainly use another piece of the same fabric to iron on a different letter as well.
After the monogram has been secured to the fabric, attach the embroidery hoop.
Be sure to tighten the top of the hoop, as needed.
Trim any extra fabric with scissors using caution and care as scissors will be sharp.
This will be the front of your farmhouse embroidery hoop gift tag ornament.
And this will be the back.
Keep in Mind
Now if you’re giving this as a gift, you might want to clean up the edges of the fabric with either Fray Away or by gluing a piece of ribbon to the back of the embroidery hoop.
Then embellish your farmhouse embroidery hoop gift tag ornament with your choice of ribbon. You can place it on a package or hang it on the Christmas tree.
Super easy, right?
