Dressing up a wall with stenciled fabric hoop art is an easy and fun project. I’m sharing all the details with you today so you can update your walls this season.
My youngest daughter just turned 4, it flew by and I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. I love her room, I spent months planning and decorating it before she was born. Since then she has moved from a crib to a big girl bed and the furniture in her room has changed. But her walls have remained relatively the same. I thought it was time for a little update.
One wall had a gallery of empty white frames that I chose to change out for some family photos and this fabric hoop art.
Watch how easy this fabric hoop art is to make and take a look at my tip for crisp stencil lines on fabric.

Here is what I used to make this fabric hoop art
- Embroidery Hoops – 12, 10 and 8 inches
- Scraps of fabric
- Freezer Paper
- Craft paint and sponge brush
I began by gathering some words that describe my daughter, she is bold brave kind and loves her family dearly. She is the kid who will most definitely move mountains. I chose Dream Big, Kind Heart and Brave Spirit for each of the hoops. I used some of my favorite fonts and layed the words out in my Silhouette software then cut them out of Freezer Paper.
Freezer Paper Stencils are the perfect way to get crisp lines on fabric.
Cut the design shiny side down on your cutting mat then use an iron on medium heat to adhere the freezer paper to fabric. You can paint using acrylic paint and a sponge brush without fear of the paint bleeding under the stencil.
This shirt made with fabric markers and freezer paper stencil is another way to use this technique.
After painting with the stencil, just peel off the freezer paper and let the paint dry. Once it’s dry, secure the fabric in the hoop and trim the excess from the edges.
I used 3 colorful fabrics and various sized hoops to add interest to this gallery wall.
My daughter loves her new art and I think I may make some more for my living room using this technique.
