Stenciled Embroidery Hoop Art
This Stenciled Embroidery Hoop Art from Amy Anderson will light up any room. Impress guests with this amazing, easy-to-make wall decor.
- Embroidery hoops - I used one 12" and one 9"
- Fabric pieces - I used two fat quarters
- Mod Podge Fabric
- FolkArt Acrylic Paint - I used Vintage Orange and Aqua for the chair, Calypso Sky and Bright Baby Pink for the Deer
- Flat paintbrush
- Stencil brush
- Stencil tape or stencil adhesive
- Stencil 1 stencils - Chair Mod Rocker and Antlered Deer, both 8.5" x 11"
- While the Mod Podged fabric is drying, paint the embroidery hoops with the paint color of your choice. I used my color wheel to put together a color palette. Allow the paint on the embroidery hoop to dry.
- Tape the stencil to the piece of fabric with the stencil tape.
- Use the stencil brush and paint to fill in the stencil. Remember not to get too much paint on the stencil brush. Stenciling is all about dry brushing and working slowly. Keep going until the entire stencil is covered. Once you are done painting, remove the stencil and allow the design to dry on the fabric.
- When the painted design is dry, assemble the wall art by putting the fabric between the two embroidery hoops and then screwing tightly. You can use some glue to hold it together. I didn't, but you can.
- The finishing touch is cutting away the excess fabric so that it doesn't hang out the back. Your project is ready to hang on the wall!
Optional: Coat the entire project with Mod Podge to glue the hoop in place and preserve the painted design.
