Getting Crafty {Hoop Art}.

I don't consider myself a very crafty person, but when I started seeing all the fabulous hoop art making it's way around the blog I knew I wanted to give it a try.
I don't know how to sew or stitch but I do know how to use a hot glue gun so I went for it.
I pulled inspiration from this post and made these for our bedroom.

I got the wooden game pieces at the local flea market a couple of weeks ago. It just so happens that the A and B also have an E and J, for the boys. I didn't even realize it until I got them home. And the A and B numbers equal 4, the members of our family. 
I love how these little blocks have so much meaning to our family. 
I'm really happy with how they turned out and they are a perfect addition to our bedroom wall. 

I also made this.
I may or may not be making some of these for Christmas.
I love how tiny this is and it makes for a perfect handmade personalized gift. 
Like I said, I don't stitch, so it's not perfect but that's what I love about it.

Next up, fabric and yarn wreaths, if I can ever find the time. 
Have you made anything new lately?
