My mom reads this blog, but she’s on vacation right now, so let’s scheme while she’s away, shall we? Mother’s Day is coming up (May 12!), so you know I’m scouring the Internet for the perfect present for her. While I’m sure any mom wouldn’t turn down a little something from the mall or the florist, homemade gifts are unique and heartfelt. Show your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother or any special woman in your life that you care with one of these crafty gifts made with embroidery hoops.
If mom’s taste is modern or rustic industrial, replicate a store-bought home decor piece for her with this tutorial from Hill Country Homebody. These embroidery hoop spheres look so cool perched on an end table or mantel.
Help mom organize all those greeting cards, photos and scraps of paper by making some embroidery hoop bulletin boards. Made By Marzipan nailed the look by mixing fabric patterns but keeping the palette consistent.
Skip the scrapbook and display sentimental snapshots with this embroidery hoop mobile from Natalme. If your mom is anything like mine, she’s got shoeboxes full of loose family photos just waiting to be used for a gift like this!
An actually-attractive storage solution? Who wouldn’t love that? These embroidery hoop stash bags via Always a Project are perfect for craft rooms, but I can also imagine using them in a home office, or even in a closet to keep small accessories tucked away.
If you really want to personalize Mom’s gift, there’s no better way than a monogram. (Or MOMogram, as the case may be.) Holly at Life as a Thrifter adorned her front door with this simple embroidery hoop project, and I think it’s oh-so-inviting.
