The hoops from my sister in law’s bridal shower have been sitting on my desk waiting to be turned into a DIY for a few months now. I knew Christmas was the perfect season for a DIY hoop wreath!
I think the simpler the better for hoop wreaths, so after wandering the faux flower aisles for way too long at the craft store, I ended up with these sprigs. The glittery leaves and little festive touches of berries and pinecones had the simple look I was going for. Even better was that it was all on one branch!
This DIY hoop wreath is completely customizable to your style. You can use a different sized hoop or completely different florals- or real florals. You can also use an embroidery hoop for an entirely different look!
To Make a DIY Hoop Wreath You Will Need:
Metal hoop (The one pictured is 12″, but we like this variety of sizes depending on the look you are going for)
Faux florals of your choice
How To Make A Hoop Wreath:
- Trim faux florals to size with the wire cutter. I wanted the florals on one side so a good portion of the gold showed through.
- Using approximately 5″ pieces of floral wire, attach the florals to the hoop.
- Depending on where you placed the wire, you may need to glue leaves in place to cover the wire. Hot glue worked perfectly for this. I like to use a low temp glue gun to save my fingers.
- Trim an inconspicuous bunch of leaves from a full part of the floral spray. Glue it down on the end of the branch to cover up where you trimmed the branch and to give it a finished look. I did this step on the version with white berries, but not the one with red berries. You can see that the white one looks slightly more finished, but you really can’t tell a huge difference.
