How to make an orb from embroidery hoops.


A few years back, I had picked up these embroidery hoops from a haberdashery store which had placed incomplete and broken items in a sale basket. There were only three outside hoops. (hoops with screws) The inner hoops were missing.

Don’t ask me why I picked incomplete hoops !!!

But finally last week – I knew exactly what I was going to make out of them.

Ta da !!

I’ve always wanted to make an orb. I feel, they exuberate an aura of class and modern decor. I remember seeing an orb bookend in a home store. It looked stunning.

I have destressed my orb.

I absolutely love it. You just won’t believe how easy it was to make it !

Thank you for stopping by and writing to me. I truly appreciate it.

    • Shelbee – I picked those hoops for peanuts becoz they were incomplete. How I wish they had more šŸ™‚ Actually, those are shopping trips where I am glad I am solo (no hubby or boys) or else, I always get questioned why I would want something broken or incomplete. Those are some of my fun shopping trips. It takes diamonds to please some women – it takes power tools to please bizarre ones like me šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

    • Thank you Donna. I did not have a plan or idea how I would use them when I bought them. But now that my studio is more organized – alot of old buried “treasures” (supplies) are cropping up !! šŸ™‚

  1. Gorgeous! I’ve seen these in stores and I’ve also seen the price. I love yours! Featuring when my link party opens up tonight. Thanks so much for sharing.
