DeDe from Designed Decor mimicked a wall display she saw by painting some embroidery hoops to create this beautiful accent art in Elegance!
I love taking an inspiration photo and finding a way to "Knock Off" the design and style with things you can find at a garage sale or thrift store.
This was my inspiration for my design. I loved how it had the layers of circles to give it dimension. I decided to take it up a notch by adding the mirrors.
I found a few of the embroidery hoops at a garage sale and purchased the rest of the hoops and mirrors from the craft store.
I used Country Chic Paint in the color Elegance. This is such a beautiful color that enhances everything that you paint with it.
I laid the hoops out onto the floor to play with some layout ideas. The patterns were endless. I took a few pictures of the designs I liked so I would remember how I had them laid out. I mostly used the inside section of the hoops and removed the clamps from a few outside sections for the additional pieces I needed.
I used wood glue and my staple gun to attach the embroidery hoops together. Once I had them attached, I used clamps until the wood glue was completely dry.
I did use the Gorilla Glue to attach the mirrors to the front of the hoops and the hoops to the tops of the other hoops.
This was a simple and easy "knock off" project to complete.
