Lets make something pretty today! This lace hoop sachet is a lovely way to add fragrance to a room.
What You Need
Embroidery hoop (I used a 4 inch hoop)
Lace or tulle (about 12 inches square, may vary depending on embroidery hoop size)
Fragrance beads or dry lavender
Before You Start : Heat up your glue gun. Take your embroidery hoop apart (remove the top pin by unscrewing)
Lets Make It! Place your inside loop onto a piece of lace or tulle and cut it about 1 inch larger in diameter than your embroidery hoop.
Lay your inside loop over the lace fabric and begin to proceed to glue the fabric to the loop using your hot glue gun all around the outside edge, gently pressing the lace fabric onto the glued edge. Work a little bit at a time ( hot glue dries quickly) moving slowly until the entire hoop is covered.
Using scissors trim any excess fabric from loop. Repeat this same process with the outside loop.
Place dried lavender or fragrance beads into the outside loop and place the inside loop back into the outside loop. It will fit snugly.
Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to cover the outside loop edge. Using your glue gun, glue the ribbon to the outside edge of the embroidery hoop. Using, beads, ribbon, flowers and other embellishments glue trim around the face of the hoop. Finish with a ribbon bow through the holes at the top of the loop (where you removed the screw.) Hang your hoop sachet in your closet, or on your door knob, or give it as a gift. Do not place directly on your clothing (sometimes fragrance beads can stain).
I hope you will enjoy making this fragrant craft. Will you grab some lace and make one too?
