I am all about using embroidery hoops in fun decorative ways, that is why I love this Embroidery Hoop Earring Holder tutorial by Sarita Creative. It is such a fun clever idea. Although this tutorial is for more geometric shapes, I bet you could do any pattern and maybe even add some a word or phrase into the mix. You can customize the hoop even more by customizing the colors to fit your decor.
