DIY lace Tambourine

Posted by Abby C on

You’ll need:

  • 1 6-8″ wooden embroidery hoop
  • 12 1/2″ brass jingle bells
  • 1/4 yard of lace fabric
  • 2 yards twine or thick string
  • hot glue gun
  • pencil
  • Start by separating the embroidery hoop. Starting at about an inch from the metal screw and mark 12 equally spaced hashmarks. It’s easiest to just mimic the numbers of a clock. Take the twine and tie a double knot at the top of the hoop.
  • Wrap it around a few times and at the first mark, thread a bell through the twine.
  • At the end of the hoop, tie another double knot. Trim away any excess twine. Loosen the metal screw.
  • Lay the lace fabric over the inner hoop and place the larger hoop over it.
  • Pull the lace taut, between the hoops. And tighten the metal screw.
  • Trim away any excess fabric with a pair of fabric shears.
  • Secure the bells by using a hot glue gun to glue the bells to the hoop.
  • Jingle, jingle!
