Baby Name Hoop

Hi y’all! I am this close to finishing the nursery! I have a couple of small projects to wrap up and then I’m calling it done! This has been my favorite room makeover of all time. It has been so much fun to put thought and care into creating a special space for my girl. I have especially loved creating personal touches along the way; i.e. putting her name on ever-y-thing {hello, monogram!}. 

I created a piece of personalized hoop art for her room. This is great for any kid’s room and can easily be customized for a boy or girl, or to match the room decor. 

Baby Name HoopTo make you own name hoop art, you’ll need an oversized embroidery hoop {I used a 14″ hoop}, fabric, felt and embroidery floss in a variety of colors, scissors and a hot glue gun. 

Baby Name HoopBefore you get started, iron your fabric to get rid of any wrinkles. Once the fabric is looking good and wrinkle-free, pull it tightly on the embroidery hoop.

I printed off and cut out letters in the size I needed to serve as a template. I pinned the template to a piece of felt and cut out the letters.

Once I had my letters cut out, I eyeballed the placement on the fabric. I used a couple dabs of hot glue on each letter to secure them onto the hoop.

The next step is stitching on the name. If you have glued the letters on, this is really more for looks than anything else. I just used a simple running stitch along the edges. If you want to try something a bit fancier, there are a ton of stitch tutorials online. It doesn’t have to be perfect! In fact, the imperfect-ness adds to the charm. 

Baby Name HoopWhen you have completed stitching on the name, it’s time to have some fun with felt embellishments! I chose to add rolled felt flowers. You could cut any variety of felt shapes to add; like kites, balloons, or animals. I attached the flowers and leaves with hot glue.
