How to Make Mini Embroidery Hoop Earrings
Step 1: Gather Supplies
- Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
- Mini Embroidery Hoops – 2 of them. (Each hoop comes with a circular hoop and 2 flat wooden circles.)
- Earring Hooks – 2 of them
- 3” (or bigger) Embroidery Hoop
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Step 2: Using an embroidery hoop that fits your fabric piece (the one pictured is a 3” hoop), embroidery a design onto your fabric.
You want the design to be small enough to fit into the mini embroidery hoop for the earring.
I used pink to make a woven wheel stitch that looks like a rose once it’s completed.
Step 3: Cut the design out of the fabric, leaving ½” of extra space bigger than the mini embroidery hoop.
Step 4: Lay the fabric down, put the mini embroidery hoop on top, centering your design inside.
Push the smaller circle disc into the back of the hoop.
Step 6: Add the nuts and screw to the top of the embroidery hoop to secure.
Place one nut onto the screw, twisting it all the way toward the screw head.
Put the screw through the hole at the top of the embroidery hoop, and twist the second nut onto the screw.
Tighten until the embroidery hoop is secure.
Step 7: Hot glue the excess fabric to the back of the smaller circular disc.
Then add more hot glue and press the remaining larger wooden disc in place to cover the whole back of the mini embroidery hoop.
This will finish it off and make everything secure.
Step 8: Use a pliers to open up the loop at the bottom of an earring hook.
Loop the earring hook over the screw, and tighten.
(If you aren’t able to fit the earring hook into the top of the embroidery hoop, you may need to loosen the outer nut to make more space so you can get the earring hook inside.
Repeat for both mini embroidery hoop earrings.
Embroider the design of your choice inside, and you can make earrings for any occasion.
