Easy Spider Web Hoop Art

Ok so it’s not exactly what you would call spooky but we do love how this spider web art turned out! Using an embroidery hoop we had lying around from our cross-stitching days, the spider web design was cut out in an iron-on vinyl using our Cricut Maker and then heat applied with an EasyPress 2.
