How-To: No-Sew Textile Wall Art

I've seen people use fabric-filled embroidery hoops as inexpensive wall art pieces before, but it's also easy to personalize and add to the design simply by using some decorative trim.

1.) Remove the inner ring from an embroidery hoop and place it on your work surface.

2.) Place a piece of fabric on top of the ring.

3.) Arrange trim pieces to achieve your desired look.  (Be creative! There's no wrong way to do this!)

4.) Place the outer ring on top of the assembly and press it down over the inner ring.

5.) Stretch the fabric taut within the hoop assembly and tighten the screw to secure.  Trim off the excess fabric.
