Creating An Embroidery Hoop Holiday Wreath

I am including some affiliate links for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure here.

 

Materials Needed

Embroidery Hoop

Greenery

Twine

Ribbon

White Card Stock

Printer

Wood Scrap Pieces- I used a 24″ piece of square basswood cut into 3″ pieces

Stain

Foam Brush

Wood Glue

Craft Glue

 

Step 1:

Cut 3″ pieces of wood from your scraps or from a 2ft piece of square basswood and sand and stain them using the foam brush.

And stain your embroidery hoop.  I just made sure it was tightly closed and stained the entire thing all at once.

Step 2:

Add your greenery.  My parents have greenery growing at their house so each year I go over and cut what I need.  You could purchase some nice looking greenery too.  Then you would not have to re-make your wreath each year.

I started with one side and tied it onto the hoop with twine.  Wire would also work but I did not have the right size.

Then work on the other side.

Step 3:

Add a bow.  I made a bow using some wired ribbon.  First shape the long loops and the tails then added the smaller loops on top with a tie and covered the tie with another piece of ribbon that I glued on the back. Leave the ends of the twine pretty long to tie the bow to the wreath.  I did have to add just a little bit of glue as well to get it to stay put without drooping.

Step 4:

Finish the little frames.  I actually got this grand idea from Latina Next Door.  Her DIY Farmhouse Ornaments on day 1 of  this blog hop were an inspiration.  I used her awesome idea to finish off my wreath.  And she has a good tutorial for the frames too.

I used Photoshop Elements to create my sayings but Word or Google Docs would work.  Print them onto white card stock so they are a little more stable than the printer paper.

Cut a piece of twine long enough to hang the two little frames from the top of the embroidery hoop.  Glue your card stock piece to the back of the frame. Then use scotch tape to adhere the tie to the back of the paper.

Cut another piece of card stock to place on top to hide the tape and the twine.

Step 5:

Hang and enjoy.  I purchased a wreath hanger at Dollar General for $1 and it works beautifully!  I love this embroidery hoop holiday wreath.
