Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fun altered embroidery hoop project. This is an oval hoop that measures 4 3/4″X9″. All of my chipboards and other embellishments were altered to appear rusty and patina covered.

Creative Embellishments Chipboard used:
Flying Heart
Fall Leaves
Large Gear Set
Large Gear Set 2
Mini Gears

Additionally, I used some molded pieces (screw,balloon bulb), Wire, and metal embellishments. There are bits of lace tucked around the gears. My pebbles were dyed using Tim Holtz alcohol ink in Patina and I have added a paper doll, background paper, and sentiment sticker from Tim Holtz as well. For colors I used an assortment of sprays.

This was such a fun project to create!

Thanks for visiting and viewing my project today!

Happy crafting!
