For this year’s Ornament Exchange I will show you how to make a personalized burlap embroidery hoop ornament that is neutral enough to go with any style decor.

I was paired up with Cherryl from Farm Girl Reformed. We exchanged emails and discussed our Christmas Tree decorating style. If you have not checked out her blog yet, you definitely should! I love Dollar Store finds and she inspired me with this Dollar Tree Gift Basket Guide. Great ideas for neighbor or teacher gifts!
Cherryl said she was going with a really rustic look with her Christmas Tree this year with burlap and twine. Her last name begins with an E, so here is what I came up with:
Burlap Embroidery Hoop Ornament
It is so easy to make and can be personalized with a letter or number, even an image of a deer or santa. It is neutral enough to go with any decor, not just rustic.
- 4″ Embroidery Hoops – This set of 12 is a great price!
- Scrap Burlap
- Hot Glue Gun – If you like to craft, this cordless glue gun is my absolute favorite! The fact that it is cordless makes crafting so easy.
- Christmas picks with pinecones – I found these at Michael’s.
You can stain or paint the embroidery hoop, but as she likes rustic I decided to leave it as is. I really wanted to stick with the decorating style that she likes.
Next place a square of burlap fabric between the two hoops and cut the excess.
Then hot glue the Christmas greens and pine cones. I wanted it to look like the embroidery hoop wreaths that are so popular now, so I only added greens along the bottom and a couple sprigs along the top. Easy, peasy!
To personalize the ornament, I used my favorite Chalk Couture. I’ve been having so much fun creating all kinds of goodies with these products that you can see here.
I used white chalk paste for the E. I really hope Cherryl likes this burlap ornament! A big thank you to Erlene from My Pinterventures for hosting this Ornament Exchange.

Every Thursday for the next four weeks I will be sharing DIY Christmas Ornaments to hopefully inspire you to make your own ornaments. There is nothing like handmade gifts, especially at Christmas.
