I love making projects with different mediums so when I had the opportunity to work with felt I was excited for the chance. It’s an easy project and it only takes about 15 minutes but I was able to add some cute details. I really love how it turned out.

Supplies needed for the felt hoop art:

felt (gray and white)
heart buttons
gray embroidery floss
hoop (8 inch)
fabric glue

You can use any simple shape for your felt hoop art. I chose an elephant because it’s almost Valentine’s Day and I thought an elephant blowing hearts in the air was a cute idea. This would also look darling in a nursery. You can free hand your shape or trace it like I did. I did a quick search on google to find this simple elephant shape.

Cut it out using sharp scissors and making any adjustments as needed.

Cut out the simple shape for the ear then stitch it in place on the elephant. Use 2 stands of embroidery floss for the stitches to make them stand out.

Place the white felt in the hoop and pull it tight.

Attach the elephant to the felt hoop using fabric glue. If you have more time you can also stitch around the elephant. Use the same color or a contrasting color of embroidery floss. That would be really cute but I was trying to keep the time down on this project.

Place the heart buttons where you want them and stitch them in place using the embroidery floss. You only need 2 stitches on each button to hold them in place.

The heart buttons are so cute and I love how much they add to this simple hoop art.

The last thing I did was add a little tail to the elephant. Take the remainder 4 strands of floss and wrap it around your 2 fingers. Make a couple stitches in the top of the loop to hold the tail in place. Cut the strands on the end and divide into 3 equal parts. Braid the tail then use a small piece of floss to tie a knot at the bottom of the tail. Trim it up if you need too.

Cut the excess felt from around the hoop as close to the hoop as possible to give it a clean finish. You can also cut the felt a little longer and hot glue it in place on the back of the hoop. It you have time you can also paint or stain the hoop.

It’s a fun little project and I love how simple and clean it looks.
