DIY Embroidery Hoop Ornament For The Christmas Tree

Hello, lovely friends!
I just looked at the calendar 
and realized Christmas is only two months away.
Where has the year gone?
I don't know about you,
but I am the kind of person that likes to get ready for the holidays early
so that when the time arrives I can simply relax and enjoy time with my family.
Just last week I ordered my Christmas cards
and in a short while I will begin the joy of addressing them.

Today I have a fun and sweet Christmas ornament to share with you.
You can hang it on your Christmas tree
or use it at as a gift topper.




What you need to make this ornament:

6-inch wood embroidery hoop
lace
tulle trim {found at Wal-Mart}
lace burlap or cotton fabric
pearls
beads or buttons


To make the lace tree
simply sew strips of lace that are about 5-inches together
{if you don't sew I think you could glue the strips together}.

As you can see I also used trim with sequins on it.

.


Once you've sewn the strips together
cut into a tree shape.




Then sew or glue the tree 
onto a piece of cotton fabric or lace burlap.

You will see in the photo below that I used two pieces of fabric
so that you cannot see the seams from sewing the tree onto the top piece of fabric.




Once you've placed the fabric in the hoop
you'll want to hot glue the tulle trim onto the back side.




Finish off the tree with a lovely little topper.
I used a lace bow and a sparkly bead.




As you can see
I went for a non-traditional Christmas color 
when making this pink ornament.
Pink is perfect for any holiday, right? {{smiles}}




For the burlap ornament 
I sewed a string of pearls onto the lace tree.




And then I cut out three burlap hearts 
to apply to the backside.




Simple yet elegant.






As you can see on these two ornaments
there is a tree trunk which is simply a strip of cream ribbon.






And last but not least. . .
this one has some pretty greenery with berries and flowers.





How about you, dear friends,
do you like to get ready for the holidays early?




Thanks for visiting!
I hope the remainder of your week is extra beautiful.
{{{hugs}}}

Stephanie,

Thank you for sharing this adorable idea! The possibilities for creativity are endless with this idea! I can imagine making some with bells and holly. They would look so pretty hanging in a window. I hope you are enjoying a cozy Wednesday!

Stunning makes, the perfect ornament fit for any tree. I like to get things done early too as I hate the stress I put myself under nearer the time. I like to enjoy December with family and friends.

Beautiful Christmas tree ornaments. Long ago I made all my ornaments for my tree and now have passed them on to my children. Yours are so lovely. I especially like the bright red one with the checkered background. Hugs.

This brought back memories of when I made embroidery hoop crafts back in the 80s. Your designs and finished ornaments are sweet.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Glorious dear friend. Your touch is sweet and happy!

Those hooped ornaments are just too, too cute, my friend! I'm thinking my granddaughters could make them using the glue method. They are just so darling. Thanks for sharing your creativity and talent with us. Love, Kitty

Celestina Marie said...

Uniquely you ornaments! The burlap ones are my favorite!!

Very very cute, Stephanie. Years ago we made big ones for wall decor but these are just darling. xo Diana

Lea said...

Oh, yes, I love to prepare early and generally I do but I have a ways to go this year. I love to get my Cmas cards done early but this year our pics cannot even be taken until the week of Thanksgiving, so I may be running real close. But, I do have 75% of my shopping done.

Cute ornaments but I'm just not crafty like that. :o))

Blessings!

Margie said...

The hoop ornaments are so pretty! I like to decorate early for the holidays too so I can maximize my enjoyment of them!

Tamago said...

Your ornaments are so pretty, Stephanie! I especially love the pink one. I love going non-traditional rather than limiting options and fun :-) Besides, as you said, pink is perfect in any holiday! I like to get ready for holiday early....but somehow I always end up panicking at the last minute!

Lady Linda said...

Hello sweet friend. Oh, these are just adorable. I like that you used a nice variety of looks to give us lots of ideas. Thanks so much for stopping by. I am doing better...still have a long ways to go. Love ya lots.

Kelly-Anne said...

How gorgeous are these embroidery hoop Christmas ornaments? Oh, Stephanie...these must be such fun to make, and I will be setting aside some time closer to the holidays to create a few for our tree...I love the colours you've used for yours, ever so pretty and feminine!
Hugs to you, dear friend...have a blessed end of your week!
Kelly-Anne

Christine said...

Oh how pretty and sweet and I know quite a few dear friends who would jus love to receive these as a little extra gift accessory! Thanks so much Stephanie for sharing your creativity and joy with us!

Debbie said...

you create beauty and elegance and your tutorials are always the best!!! i use to make something similar with counted cross stitch pieces!!

they make great gifts and look awesome tied to the front of a package!!!

Sara - My Woodland Garden said...

Hello dearest Stephanie, these ornaments are so pretty that I would keep them on display all the year round. :)
Thank you for the lovely ideas! I will, however, give much simpler things, like woollen socks, as gifts.
Blessings! xx

Jann Olson said...

You are on the ball Stephanie! They are so cute!! The neutral one reminds me of my mug rug and pillow ornament, which I still love!
hugs,
Jann

Carla from The River said...

Hello,
I love the idea. Thank you!
Yes, I like to start early as well. I make a calendar for my family members each year. I will start on that this next week so I can have it printed well in advance. Some of our family we see at Thanksgiving and not at Christmas, so I like to have gifts ready.

Thank you for the prayers for my friend.
xx oo

Stephanie, you are so creative! I can't believe that Christmas is less than 8 weeks away! ♥

Jazzmin said...

Dear Stephanie,
This is one of my favorite things you have ever created! I think I say this a lot when commenting on your beautiful creation posts, but it's true because everything you make is simply beyond beautiful and lovely!
What a perfectly beautiful item to decorate or gift to a dear loved one or friend! So creative and elegant, and I love how you can tailor it to fit different decor styles, from Victorian with your beautiful lace, to quintessential Christmas with the gorgeous greenery, to fun and festive with the pink! That one is my favorite (smiles)! Ahh, the pink sequins!

I will also be visiting your most lovely shop when I finish commenting to admire your additions :)

Love and many hugs to you, dear friend! I'm sorry I have not visited you more recently lately. You are thought of and prayed for and a treasured friend always!
Jazzmin

Karen said...

I enjoyed seeing your Christmas crafts.

Faye Henry said...

Very pretty Stephanie and so simple to make really.. I think I will share these with my Keepers of the Home Craft day next week.. Thank you, my friend and God bless..xoxo

Gina E. said...

These are lovely! I made a Christmas hoop hanging last month with our Quilt shop group - we used buttons to make a Christmas tree. I might try your idea now, so I can have two different hoop decorations next month :-)
I've been busy making Christmas teacup coasters - everybody that I've shown them to loves them, so they are all getting one - ha!

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Well, isn't this just another easy craft! I love how easy your tutorials are to follow! The little hoops look soo cute all dressed up, and I can just imagine the many different things you could create with them. Hope you are having a blessed and lovely Sunday, with many hugs!

Sandy said...

This has to be one of my favorite posts! Love you ideas and these lace Christmas trees are fabulous!

Dear Stephanie, would you believe I have a tulle project in the works also? Your pretty ornaments are so charming, I just had to pin one! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!

Linda Walker said...

So so pretty Stephanie! I have missed so much over the past couple of weeks. I have been very busy, family stuff etc...Your ornaments with tulle are lovely. Tulle is one of my favorite fabrics to "play" with! Adds such a nice touch!
xoxo

Red Rose Alley said...

Such cute ornaments for the tree, Stephanie. I went to Hobby Lobby today, and they have a section that's pink and green and blue... pastels. I couldn't stop looking at them. So, this ornament with the pink tulle trim made me think of that. :)
