I’m back with another Pinterest Challenge! This time, I’m sharing a mini hoop sea shell wall hanging tutorial!
If you aren’t familiar with the the Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, it’s a hop to help motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!
This month, the pin that inspired this mini hoop sea shell wall hanging goes to some weird download page that has nothing to do with the image. Boo, I hate when that happens. Thankfully, the pin image was clear so it wasn’t too hard to replicate.
Mini Hoop Sea Shell Wall Hanging
- mini embroidery hoop (only use the inside hoop)
- sea shell
- drill/small drill bit (use a bit size that will accommodate the twine)
- white cord
- glue gun/glue sticks
- various wood beads
Preparing the Sea Shell
- Drill a hole in the sea shell.
- Cut twine about 30″ and fold in half.
- Tie a knot at the looped (closed) end and add tape to the loose ends (this makes it easier to add beads) and add a wood bead.
- String the open ends of the twine through the hole, making sure the bead is behind the shell. Set aside.
Preparing the Mini Hoop
- Wrap twine around a 3.5″ portion of the mini hoop, making sure to add a dab of hot glue to hold the twine in place.
- Place the beaded shell so that it hangs in the center of the hoop and the hoop sits between two pieces of twine. Add a dab of glue to the twine to help hold it in place.
- Add several beads to the twine, making sure it sits on top of the mini hoop.
Bottom of the Mini Hoop
- Cut the white cord – 1 – 28″ length, 2 – 26″ length, 2 – 24″ length, 2 – 22″ length, 2 – 20″ length, and 2 – 18″ length.
- Loop the 28″ cord at the bottom center of the mini hoop. Add the remaining cords, using the longest to the shortest around the center cord.
- Optional – Fray the ends of the white cord.
Now the mini hoop sea shell wall hanging is ready to be displayed. My daughter added it to her growing dream catcher collection.
