I found this great tutorial for foamboard wall art:

http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2006/08/fabric_panels.html

I love the idea, but didn't want to spend anymore money after going a little overboard with Christmas presents. My mother-in-law gave me a basketfull of different sized embroidery hoops, so I decided to get crafty with them and some scrap fabric that matches the pink/orange/red color scheme I'm trying to incorporate into my craft room. I'm tickled with how it came out!!!

I love it!!  It looks amazing and since they are embroidery hoops they will work so well is a craft room.  I may have to steal this idea from you if I ever come across a box of hoops...I hope you don't mind...hehe.  Way to think outside the box!!!

I love it.
I actually really wanted to do something like that. (after seeing it on a blog http://theinspiredroom.wordpress.com/page/12/ )
But I didn't have the hoops or the fabric or that much money to go out and buy some.
But I seriously love it.

Oh my gosh, I have a ton of hoops that used to be my grandmothers. The only thing I ever knew how to do with them was make potpourri things that I hate but used to make as presents. Now I have some cool inspiration, as soon as I pick a color theme I need to do something like this.

And I just had a brainstorm, you could print pictures on fabric and then hang them up!

awesome Idea! Maybe you could even put a  co-ordinating pocket on each one and actually use them to hold your tools etc

Hit the thrift stores.  Hoops like that go for, oh maybe a dollar. 

I like the graphicness (zat a word?) of this.  Kind of like funky bubbles.
