Hoop Wall Art with Fabric Remnants

100_8781

I’ve been working on this project for almost a year…collecting the hoops from auctions, thrift stores and flea markets. I still think this wall needs some of the smallest hoops, maybe 2-3 more.

But other than that I am calling it done!  Some of the fabric is vintage, some is new, the patchwork one is made from scraps from this bunting I made for my great nephew’s first birthday party.

Some of the fabric is vintage, most of it is new…some of the hoops are vintage.  The oval one hanging above the bed is a quilting hoop, it was cruddy when I bought it at an auction for $2, but it cleaned right up with Murphy’s Oil Soap.

The chevron fabric is leftover from the stool cushion I recovered.

All these fabrics are vintage. I thought they looked great grouped together.

I’m loving how homey (not homely!) the splashes of different color make this corner feel.

OK, so now be honest with me…what do you think?  Is it too much?

I will be linking to some of these great parties…Thanks for stopping by today!

I was at a friend's yesterday and she had several of these on a wall and I liked the look of it. I took a photo for inspiration for my house. We have many blank walls since we remodeled AND we have no carpeting in our house anymore. I think some soft wall art might help absorb sound when we have parties. I'm going to be on the look out for hoops and fabric! Pinned!
