Hi!

This project has been in the works for awhile but now its finished. I've been wanting a wall mural since I bought my own home over a year ago, and somewhere to display my hooplas in my craft room, so this seemed the perfect match.

The finished wall:


I used ordinary-left-over brown wall paint mixed with a darker brown acrylic for the tree and clear 'decorating hooks for my hoops.


The plain tree with no hooplas and a clean craft room.


Close-up of hoops (from top) Cola Girl by ZidishaLuxe in Local Attraction Swap, map by bubblegumphoenix  in Embroidery round 9 swap, Wizard by my mum.


(from left) buttons by Bec99 in the I love buttons round 3 swap, butterfly by me, bunny by my mum.


(from left) Indiana Jones hoop, brooch and skull cross-stiches by me, 'live your dreams' embroidery by, roses by my Grandma.


Airship hoop be Averia in the Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap, Vowel A hoop by me.

Hope you enjoy! I look forward to filling it!
