How to make an Embroidery Hoop Wreath
Who knew something so cute and unique looking would be so easy to make? putting flower arrangements together successfully has always been a struggle for me and that’s why I promised myself (and my readers) that this Spring I would create lots of projects with florals. I hope I am doing a good job and that in doing more projects like these, I am only getting better at my floral arrangement making skills! Believe it or not, at one time, I couldn’t put flowers together and make them look good to save my life! So let’s get started with this DIY embroidery hoop wreath!
What You’ll Need
- 8 or 10 inch embroidery hoops
- floral foam
- something to poke a hle through your floral foam with (I used a dowel rod)
- hot glue gun
- artificial florals of your choice
How I did it
Decide how much floral foam you want on your hoop. Then take a dowel rod or any other long sharp object and make a hole all the through your foam.
Then slide it on your hoop and screw the hoop back together.
I took my hot glue gun and put some glue onto the hole I had made after it was on the hoop and that way it would stay on the hoop where I wanted it to. Also, I placed my floral foam over the part of the hoop where the screw is so that part would be covered.
Once you have the floral foam on the hoop, then take your florals and begin to stick them in where you think they’ll look best.
What I did first for every one I made was take some greenery/filler pieces and stick them into the ends before I got started filling the center with florals. See pictures below.
Once you have stuck some greenery or longer stem fillers into the ends of the floral foam that’s when you begin to place the other florals onto the foam.
There is really no exact method for placing the florals on the foam. It really depends on what kind of florals you have, the size of them and the look you’re going for.
I honestly did not have a look I was going for, I basically just made it up as I went. I know that’s not of much help however, see the pictures below to see how mine ended up.
I had to make a few so I could try a few different looks/methods.
This wreath is super simple and I think for as awesome as mine turned out, ANYBODY can do it!
The picture below is of the first one I made. It was cute and all but I decided after I made the other 2 that I would dismantle the first one I made and make it similar to the newer two. Ha, I know, I know…I’m a mess!
