How to make embroidery hoop art with dried flowers – Olga Prinku

I can’t quite remember what first brought me to Olga on Instagram, but what I do remember is stopping in my tracks and having to find out more. What I’d seen was a photograph of the prettiest tulle-filled embroidery hoop hand decorated with dried flowers. I discovered all sorts of other beautiful creations by Olga as well as a collection of hugely helpful tutorials for anyone wanting to have a go at creating botanical embroidery hoop art.

Before I knew it I’d made contact with Olga to ask if she might like to share an idea or two with us here. With Spring, Easter and Mother’s Day all approaching, I’m thinking that making your own embroidery hoop art with dried flowers would make great gift ideas – whilst giving you simple, creative joy along the way.

Here’s Olga’s step by step to creating a mini Spring themed hoop inside a presentation box. Scroll down to see lots of other inspiring dried flower embroidery design ideas by Olga – all made using the same technique. Once you’ve mastered it with the help of this free tutorial, you’ll be able to try your hand at any design that takes your fancy. Hope you enjoy.

materials:

4” embroidery hoop

A pice of tulle fabric big enough to cover the hoop (tulle with big eyelets). You can buy English tulle by the yard here

Dry flowers and foliage: I’m using dry small poppy heads, dry grasses, dry eucalyptus leaves and seeds, dry yellow helichrysum Immortelle, dry hydrangea.

You can find all of these dry flowers and more on etsy

2. Pick 3 single hydrangea blooms making sure there’s a bit of stalk left. Weave the stalk through the net so the flower is secure in place. Attach all three hydrangea flowers at the bottom of the hoop as closely as possible to each other.

3. On the right hand side of the hydrangea place a couple of eucalyptus leaves weaving the stalk of the leaves in the same way as with hydrangeas.

4. Now Attach the poppy heads. Trim the stalks at an angle for ease of weaving. I’ve used mine in between the eucalyptus leaves and one just above of the hydrangea blooms.

5. Weave in a couple of grasses at an angle on the same side as the eucalyptus leaves. Trim any excess grass stalks.

6. Snip each single helichrysum bloom leaving at least 7mm of stalk and weave 4 or 5 of them on the left hand side of the hydrangea flowers following the curve of the hoop.

7. Now do the same on the other side – fill the gaps between the hydrangea bloom and grasses on the right hand side.

8. Depending if you have any gaps underneath the hydrangea blooms weave in a few more of the small helichrysum to fill in as well making sure the end of the stalk is hidden underneath the hydrangea petals.

    When putting on the tulle netting do you put it on double or just a singly to then attach your flowers to? Thank you.
