If you’re looking for a last-minute decoration or gift for Halloween, I’ve got the perfect thing for you! My Halloween Hoop Art is fairly easy and totally customizable. I made these particular hoops as part of my gift for the Kawaii Halloween Swap (along with this Felt Ghost Key Fob), and I thought they were fun enough to share with you.
You will need:
- glitter hoops
- three small pieces of Halloween fabric
- white felt
- orange felt
- green felt
- waste canvas
- Mod Podge
- orange pom pom ribbon
- black embroidery thread
- orange embroidery thread
- white embroidery thread
- green embroidery thread
For your first hoop, cut a square of fabric slightly bigger than your inside hoop. Just put your hoop on the fabric to size it.
When your fabric is cut, place it on top of the inside hoop. Cut two pieces of the pom pom ribbon and place them where you want.
Attach the outside hoop and tighten.
I then pressed a piece of felt inside and placed another interior hoop of the same size to hold it down while it dried. Once it was dry, I removed the hoop and trimmed the felt. There are certainly more polished ways of doing backing. I’ve been experimenting and thought I’d share this version.
Next, place a ghost shape on your fabric. You might recognize the ghost from my Ghost Headband.
My final hoop is the most labor intensive (but still not too difficult!). Size, place, and attach your third piece of fabric in the same way as the other hoops.
This will allow you to stitch evenly. I used four cross stitch stitches for each eye, one for the nose, and straight stitches for the mouth. Once you are finished stitching, pull the threads on the waste canvas to remove it.
Your Halloween Hoop Art Trio is finished! It’s such happy hoop art and the perfect last minute addition to your Halloween decorations or as a gift!
