This DIY orb pumpkin is another great re-purposed home decor project using …embroidery hoops.  I know it sounds crazy but I find old embroidery hoops at about 1 out of every 5 garage sales I go to and have no doubt…I snag them up! This past weekend I was looking through my crafting supplies for some fall decor ideas. I ran across some oval hoops I had bought last summer and wondered if they would work for orb pumpkins.

By now you have all seen my post on “How to make decorative orbs out of embroidery hoops” and this pumpkin project shares the same basic concept. I made them out of orange painted round and oval hoops to create a unique pumpkin!

Fall Decor Pumpkin Orb Supplies:

Fall Decor Pumpkin Orb Instructions:

1) Separate your 2 matching sets of embroidery hoops into 4 individual pieces. You will have 2 larger hoops which have the adjustment clasp and 2 smaller hoops which are solid.

2)  Spray paint them in one of the spray paint colors. Make sure that you get all sides of the hoops because you will see all sides.  Let dry.
