15 Pretty Crafts Involving Embroidery Floss

If you’ve ever done cross stitching, needlepoint, or other embroidery based projects, you already know how great embroidery floss can be to work with. Beyond being a versatile crafting tool, the floss comes in all different bright colours just to make it even better to work with. Needlepoint based things aren’t the only things you can make using embroidery floss though. If you’re willing to get creative, the possibilities are almost endless.

Have we peaked your interest yet? Then check out these 15 awesome decorative and functional projects made with embroidery floss!

1. Embroidery floss wrapped hoop earrings

Are you a huge fan of making your very own jewelry but you’ve always found the idea of making your own hoop earrings hard because that requires bending metal? Well, not every project has to be made from actual scratch yourself. Sometimes customizing things that are already made is just as good. That’s why we love the idea of making these embroidery wrapped hoop earrings by Ed White Photographics. Simple wrapping techniques are the key here and you have full control over which colours you choose!

2. Colourful thread wrapped stool

Once you’ve mastered the wrapping techniques it took to make the hoop earrings, you’re prepared to make just about anything! That has almost no limits, so why not include furniture to easily customize your living space? We love the way Vintage Revivals used brightly coloured embroidery floss to add a bit of colour blocking detail to the legs of this kitschy side table. Choose colours that contrast the rest of your décor space or march in different shades.

3. Rhinestone and embroidery braid necklace

Are you still very into the idea of making things with embroidery floss but, rather than just wrapping it around things, would you rather actually create something from the floss itself? In that case, you might like this stunning bib necklace idea that’s made from strands of embroidery floss held together and braided. We love the additional detail of weaving the braid around a string of rhinestones for a little bit of extra sparkle. Get the full instructions on Thanks, I Made It.
