  • Wooden Embroidery Hoops in 3 sizes: 6″, 8″ and 10″ diameters
  • Linen Art Canvas 10oz, 1 yard
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Americana Acrylics in Foliage Green,Cranberry Wine, Desert Turquoise, Avocado, Buttermilk
  • Americana Decor Succulents stencil 8″x8″
  • Pencil
  • Hot Glue gun with clear glue sticks


  • Preparing the canvas, Iron the canvas to remove most of the wrinkles and creases.
  • Lay the canvas on a flat surface and place the embroidery hoops on top leaving 2” spacing between each hoop and 1” around all the perimeters.
  • Using a pencil, trace the outer edge of the embroidery hoops. This solid line will mark the area to paint within.
  • With a pair of fabric scissors, cut out the circles 1″ away from the pencil marks.
  • Next, working one canvas circle at a time position one of the stencil succulent shapes over the canvas in the lower right half of the circle and trace it with a pencil. Continue tracing the other stencil shapes around the first succulent, adding foliage shapes around the outer edges.
  • Repeat this with the other two canvas circles by choosing which shapes to place on each.
  • Painting the canvas, place one of the prepared stencilled circles on your work surface.
  • Paint one succulent at a time. Using a small flat tip paint brush, paint inside all the larger stencilled areas. Its best to use a thin coat of paint so that the canvas texture is still visible.
  • Repeat with the pink succulents and the blue succulents.
  • And lastly, paint all the foliage using Avocado acrylic paint
  • Framing the hoop art once dry, insert the painted canvas circles into the embroidery hoops.
  • Fold in the outer cut edges and glue in place so edges are not visible from the front.
  • Hang on your wall to enjoy!
