Embroidery Hoop Crafts {& a GIVEAWAY Winner!}

I have a new obsession…

It involves embroidery hoops…

But it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with embroidering…

It all started with this:
 The bulletin board from littleprettystudio
Super fun and cute, right? A fantstic way to brighten up any space. Plus, the beauty of an embroidery hoop? If you get tired of the colors, just change the fabric! Also, adding more than one hoop in varying sizes makes this space even more interesting.
From the Little Pretty Studio Etsy store I cyberstalked the owner, Jennifer, to her blog where I found this amazing collage which totally won me over on the whole idea of crafting and decorating with embroidery hoops.
So I decided to stalk Etsy and find more embroidery hoop craft ideas. I was not disappointed! Here are just a few of my faves! {click on them to see a larger version}
