I chose this project because I have boxes and boxes of fabric scraps that I hope to use in future projects. Because I already had all of the fabric, this project was under $10 to complete thanks to some 40% off coupons for JoAnn Fabrics.
My supplies included:
10 embroidery hoops in different sizes (these were all priced at between $1.29 and $1.89 originally, I used coupons to knock that down just a little bit more.)
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Nails to hang them up (Completed, these weigh almost nothing. I just used little finishing nails that we had laying around.)
I started by inserting the fabric into the embroidery hoop. I pulled it taught and tightened the hoops as I went. Then, I trimmed the excess fabric, leaving just enough to fold over the inside frame. After applying a thin line of hot glue around the edge of the frame, I folded the excess fabric in and laid it upside-down while the hot glue dried. Here is a pic after the fabric has been pulled nice and tight, the excess was trimmed down, and the hot glue was applied:
