Need an easy and inexpensive farmhouse craft idea?!
Check out these adorable DIY orbs using embroidery hoops. What a fun decorative accessory to add interest and texture to any area of your home, on the cheap!
The best part about this craft is that you can customize your orbs in any size, paint or stain color desired. Depending on what size embroidery hoops you buy, this project comes out to just several dollars per orb, while real orbs are sold in home accessory stores for MUCH more!
It turns out to be a pretty great decorating hack!
Supplies Needed For One Orb:
2.) After they are completely dry, grab the two hoops that have the metal locking mechanisms, and Intersect those two. Just put one inside the other.
3.) Slide the other two hoops, one at a time, inside and move them around evenly so they form a sphere. Make sure they are going in the opposite direction as the first two hoops.
4.) Manipulate orb until you get it evenly spaced and arranged how you’d like it.
5.) Optional Step: Attach thumb tacks to each intersecting point. I like the look of the tacks, and I think it helps keep them in place, but this is up to you! You can also leave orb as is instead.
Hip Tip: It helps to use a set of pliers to push in stubborn pins that may not go in easily.
OH MY GOSH! I love these orbs, and they are so fun to make.
What a cute craft idea that’s also super easy to make. I added the little blue one next to these larger stained orbs I had previously made.
You could make these in any color or stain to fit in with your decor! I think a few of these would make a thoughtful gift idea, too.
Just style a few orbs together as a group or feature one in an arrangement with other accessories. So pretty!
