Personalize Your Home With a DIY Embroidered Wall Hanging

They’re here, y’all! Brit + Co DIY Kits are now available in nearly all Target stores and on Target.com and we’re, for lack of a better word, OBSESSED! They’re the perfect gift and a beginner-friendly way to try your hand at a new skill. While there are a thousand reasons we love these kits (holler at those fun, patterned tools!), one of our favorite parts about these kits is their versatility!

We let our team of DIYers have a go at our DIY Embroidered Wall Hanging Kit and they came up with totally unique designs. We’ll show you the different stitches our team used to create these awesome designs.

MAKERS GONNA MAKE

Our unofficial motto here at Brit + Co is definitely “Makers Gonna Make,” so you know we had to immortalize it in embroidery. This design was primarily made with backstitches and running stitches but can be entirely made with running stitches.

To add interest to your radial patterns, vary the length of the stitches and the space between stitches.

GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS

Maddie worked a pro-woman angle with her design. Pare down the color palette of your embroidery thread for a bolder look.

Use a stem stitch to add dimension for a hand-lettered look and seed stitch to fill in hearts.

OOH LA LA

Irene absolutely CRUSHED it with this super graphic and fun design. Ooh La La, indeed.

For thin yet bold lines, Irene used a seed stitch. FYI, this is VERY tedious but totally worth it. Irene used two layers of seed stitches to give her design some extra dimension and pop. Give it a shot for a bolder look.

CACTUS DREAMLAND

You’ve already heard that “Plant Lady” is the new “Cat Lady” right? Lee’s chlorophyll masterpiece uses a combination of a few stitches that we’ve already covered in addition to an exaggerated cross-stitch for the planters.

You’ve already heard that “Plant Lady” is the new “Cat Lady” right? Lee’s chlorophyll masterpiece uses a combination of a few stitches that we’ve already covered in addition to an exaggerated cross-stitch for the planters. Double up the cross stitch for a bolder look and to make those planter frames look more sturdy.

These are just a few of our favorite designs. Once you’ve mastered these stitches, the design possibilities are endless!
