Stylish Storage Solution: DIY Embroidery Hoop Wall Pockets
Pair your favorite fabrics with old denim jeans to make these adorable wall displays. Use them to store craft supplies, notes, makeup, mail and whatever else you can think up.
These easy embroidery hoop wall hangings have so many options. You can add cork so they double as a bulletin board. Old blue jeans add an extra pocket. Depending on the fabric and hoop size you can make it subtle and chic or big and bold.

- wood embroidery hoops
- cork (squares or roll)
- hot-glue gun and glue
- old denim jeans
Cork comes in rolls or squares. Choose a size that will fit inside your embroidery hoop.
Embroidery hoops come in two parts. Set aside the outer piece (with the attached hardware). Trace a circle on the cork around the outside of the inner hoop.
Cork can be easily cut with scissors. If your cork is very thin you may need to sandwich a few pieces together. Use a hot-glue gun to attach the cork circle to the back of the inner hoop piece.
Stretch a piece of fabric across the front of the hoop and secure it in place with the outer hoop. Trim excess fabric from the back and use hot glue to secure the fabric to the hoop and the back of the cork. Feel free to add trim or embellishments.
Try using other materials such as old blue jeans for an extra pocket. You can stretch a pair across an entire embroidery hoop depending on the size of the jeans. Children’s jeans that have been outgrown are great for this project.
Another fun option is to just remove the pocket of the jeans and attach to stretched fabric or cork with glue.
Hang in a cluster on the wall. These pockets are great for lightweight craft supplies, message centers for busy families or mail.
