Perfect for ornaments
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2018
Used these for 2 inch square cross stitch motifs as Christmas ornaments for teacher gifts when the 4 inch hoops available locally were just a touch too big. They were the perfect size and much sturdier, had heavier wood, and a smoother finish than all the flimsy wood hoops available at big box craft stores near me too. The quality was amazing for the price. Hoops available in store splinter, break and bend easily, but these held up to all my frantic last minute gluing and retying of ribbons without any signs of wear. Will definitely order these again for finishing embroidery projects in the hoop. The only possible negative--since I didn't test it--is the finish is smooth so you might want to scuff it a little if you plan on painting them.
