Hanging Hoops Without Wall Damage

Etc, Lifestyle + Creativity at Home

how to hand embroidery hoops without wall damage | the meriweather council blog

I have always had an odd affinity for office supplies, no one knows why… but it has stuck with me (no pun intended) and so when I started to take photos of my hoops on the wall there was no shortage of mounting tape and squares which work excellently for hanging hoops that either – in my case, needed to be removed – or are being hung in rented spaces (aka not your walls so don’t screw them up.)

And that is what makes embroidery hoops perfect for apartment and dorm dwellers who wish to hang art and decorate their temporary spaces. Let me show you how to hang embroidery hoops with mounting tape or squares.

You will need:


and a scissor(s) {depending on your geographic location}

and… some hoops to hang!

 All you have to do is pile two small squares on top of each other to create a ledge for the hoop to sit on. Just like you would put a pin or nail in the wall except this way there is no damage to your walls! This is important is you are on a lease or have a security deposit! The hoops are very lightweight and so they will not weigh down the mounting squares. And if you’ve used them before you know they peel right off and do not take the paint with them – – sort of like a post christmas miracle!
