I love finding new ways to use old things…and these embroidery hoop wreaths that I’ve been seeing all over- inspired me to create my own. I love the simplicity of the hoop wreaths- and total bonus…they don’t need a lot on them to look lovely. So less greenery you have to buy to get this cute wreath 🙂 I had some left-over frosted greenery from my Christmas decor, and I’m really happy with how this winter wreath turned out. It’s the perfect way to add a little greenery to my decor during the winter months.
12″ embroidery hoop
Wood stain (optional)
Winter greenery bunch/or separate greenery sprigs
Hot glue gun
Gold and white bakers twine
I used the Minwax brand stain in Provincial 211, to stain the embroidery hoop a dark brown color.
I found this large frosted greenery bunch at Hobby Lobby. I took it apart because it was too big to use it all on one hoop. Bonus! …leftover greenery to use for another wreath or something else!!
I had this white and gold treaded twine already (left-over for another project) and liked how it looked with the wreath. So I used it to hang the wreath when it was finished.
Start by laying out the greenery on top of the hoop to see how you want it to look once it’s attached to the wreath. Once you like the way it looks, start by wrapping the greenery pieces around the hoop to secure them. Use the glue gun to attach or secure any pieces that need it.
Once the greenery is attached…I hot glued the berries and pine cone to the front of the wreath.
Then just add the twine to the wreath, if you want for hanging purposes…and Voila!! An easy and lovely winter wreath for your space!
I love how simple this hoop wreath is. The frosted greenery adds a little winter whimsy to my dining room…and I’m loving it! Who says your home needs to feel bare after all the holiday decorations come down?!? 🙂
Have a great day friends!
