One of my favorite summer memories from childhood. I love when I envision a project and it turns out even better than I had planned!

Here's how to create Dandelion Hoop Art:
To begin the tutorial How to Make Embroidery Hoop Art on Tulle, gather all supplies. Remove the labels and packaging from all materials. Loosen the screw at the top of the 5″ wooden embroidery hoop, and remove the inner hoop from the outer hoop. Basecoat all surfaces of both hoops with Lamp Black acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Layer the inner ring of your work surface, place the double layer of black tulle on top, and then fit the outer ring over top and fit loosely. Gently pull the tulle around the bottom edge of the hoop to tighten the fabric, but be careful not to tear it. Trim the excess black tulle around the edge with scissors.
Download and print the DANDELION EMBROIDERY PATTERN below ⇓ Place the pattern under the tulle. Thread Anchor Embroidery Floss Spools Parrot Green Medium Dark on a needle and using the pattern as your guide, create two dandelion stems with a chain stitch. Pass your needle through the stitches on the back of the design to secure, and then trim any long ends with scissors.
Using the pattern as your guide, create a cluster of French knots at the top of both stems using Canary Medium Light floss. I secured 11 French knots for the center of the large dandelion and 7 French knots in the center of the smaller dandelion.
Thread White Anchor Embroidery Floss on a needle and create the fluffy petals around the larger dandelion. I used a series of shorter satin stitches and longer satin stitches with a “V” shape at the top. This is a flower, so use the pattern as your guide, but let your stitches be organic. Create a group of individual fluffy petals that are being blown off of the larger dandelion. Continue the short and long satin stitches to complete the smaller danelion.
Once the stitching on the front is complete, flip the embroidery hoop over on your work surface and secure all of the groups of stitches in the back with E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue. Set aside to dry.
To finish the tutorial How to Make Embroidery Hoop Art on Tulle, tie black and white gingham ribbon in a bow. Trim any long ends with scissors and cut a fishtail at the base of each ribbon end. Attach the bow to the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop with E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue. I love this trick for hiding the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop. It really elevates the simple hoop into wall art.
