Can I use super glue instead of hot glue?
Yes! Either type of glue will work with this project. I find hot glue to be easier to work with for very simple projects like this fall banner. But if you don’t have hot glue or a hot glue gun, super glue will work too!
What could I use instead of embroidery hoops?
If you don’t have embroidery hoops or simply prefer a different style, you could replace them in this fall banner project with anything stiff. Something such as balsa wood cut into circles would give you the same general look without the embroidery hoops.
If you use choose to go this route, wrap your felt around the circle and glue it in place on the backside. Then make sure you cut a hole in the wood for your jute twine.
