DYI | Embroidery Hoop Orbs

What's a girl to do with a tub full of embroidery hoops?

Make orbs  to hang from the ceiling, of course.

I took my current favorite stain, Early American, an old pair of socks and rubber gloves, and some good music and set to work.

Put on the rubber gloves before you put the sock on your hand. The stain seeps right through the sock and will stain your hand if you don't have rubber gloves on underneath. So be sure to wear the rubber gloves. Dip in stain and rub it on the loops. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.



After they dry, just put three of them together and hang them. I used fishing line, but they would look fun if you used ribbon or jute too.
