Watch How They Make This Super Cool Bookend Out Of Embroidery Hoops! | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

I’ve always loved the industrial look of wood or metal orbs. We have one out on the coffee table that’s made of metal, but it’s not a bookend. But even one picked up at Target can come with a price tag that is a little steep for such a simple piece.

Wooden embroidery hoops on the other hand are rather inexpensive. These embroidery hoop orbs are quite easy to make. I know some of you are hand embroiderers like I am, so this would be a fun addition to a craft room or for any crafters home decor.


This looks really cool on a bookshelf for a great bookend! It’s a great look for modern decor and minimalists, although it would look awesome in any decor.

If you’re trying to think of a great housewarming gift, this couldn’t be a more unique gift, and I’m sure that it will certainly surprise your recipient! I know that I would be really excited about receiving a gift like this one!


  • 2 wood embroidery hoops (my local craft store had them from just over a dollar)
