Making an embroidery hoop ornament is so easy. All it requires is a handful of supplies and about 5 minutes of your time.
I love a good, simple craft. Recently, at my local MOPS group, we made embroidery hoop ornaments. They were so easy and turned out so cute!
If you are a mom who has kids that have not yet reached kindergarten and you’ve never heard of MOPS, I highly suggest you look it up. It is an international, Christian based organization and stands for Mothers of PreSchoolers.
My local group meets twice a month in the morning. Childcare is provided, while the moms enjoy various speakers, craft days, service projects, fellowship, and fun. It really is wonderful to be able to connect with other moms of young children who can relate so closely with all of the joys and struggles of parenthood. It’s a chance to feed your soul, have some adult interaction, make new friends, and just relax for a couple of hours.
Anyway, at a recent meeting, we made these adorable embroidery hoop ornaments. We made enough to pass out to all of the childcare workers as a little thank you gift, then we made some for ourselves. There was quite a bit of material and supplies left when the meeting was over, so I brought a hoop and a square of burlap home, in order to show you how easy it is.

- Embroidery hoop 3.5″
- Small square of fabric/burlap
- Accessories to decorate with (buttons, flowers, small ornaments, etc.)
- Hot glue gun
Step 1 – Secure Fabric in Hoop and Trim
The first thing to do is to place your fabric in the embroidery hoop. Slide the two pieces of the embroidery hoop apart. Place your fabric in between the two pieces and fit the hoops back together.
Then, trim the excess fabric off from around the back edge of the hoop.
Step 2 – Add Decorations
For this particular ornament, I used a simple flower and a few leaves that I plucked from a couple of Christmas stems that I had on hand. I messed with the arrangement a bit until I figured out what I liked, before glueing it down.
Then, using my hot glue gun, I secured everything into place.
Step 3 – Add Ribbon and Hang
The last thing to do is to simply add a ribbon and hang on your tree!
Here is the one I just made, plus the two that I made during our MOPS meeting.
If you are looking for a fun, unique, and incredibly easy craft this Christmas, an embroidery hoop ornament will definitely fit the bill.
