DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Hoops with Cricut
Buffalo plaid seems to be all the rage this Christmas. It is nice for a rustic, cozy feel. I’m in love with it! You can buy 3 different colored buffalo plaids at the Dollar Tree if you are lucky! Red, black and grey! They are perfect for a lot of Christmas projects. I came across a bunch of old hoops in my stash and decided to use some of them and make some DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Hoops with Cricut. Why not?! I finally have an EasyPress2. Therefore, time to put it and my Cricut Maker to work!

Start With Red Buffalo Plaid
For this smaller 5” hoop I had, I used this infinity scarf from dollar tree. I cut it at the seam then with the hoop on top cut the fabric leaving about an inch and a half around the hoop. Press the wrinkles out.
Cut out your design from everyday iron on. With the EasyPress2 set on 315 degrees, apply light pressure for 30 seconds. I turn mine over and give it 10 seconds more however that is up to you. Let it cool and peel.
Assemble DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Hoop
Place the inside hoop down and cover it with your design piece. Take the top piece and center your design.
Once you’re happy, tighten the hoop.
Turn it over and trim close as you can to the hoop. Be sure you have the hoop as tight as possible before cutting.
Time to embellish it just a bit. I tied a white ribbon around the hoop and then I decided it needed to be covered in the back. I cut a piece of felt close to the size of the hoop.
I placed it on a clean surface with the hoop face down and hot glued the piece to the back.
Lastly, I cut the felt as close to the hoop as possible. It turned out great!
