My DIY hoop wreath tutorial will have you glad you didn’t spend on a premade fall wreath, but instead made an equally lovely DIY hoop wreath all by yourself!
I have been eyeing some gorrrrgeous fall hoop wreaths this year- I have to mention THIS wreath which is only $25. Hello GORGEOUS and affordable!
A few more lovelies:
Although I have alll the heart eyes for those hoop wreaths, I thought I would try my hand at it first to see if I could create something similar.
I used a heavy duty command hook to hang my wreaths. I cut a small hole in one side of the ribbon so that it slid directly over the hook. This also hides the hook, which is nicer looking.
Making this wreath myself was surprisingly simple- so simple I made a fall hoop wreath for my neighbor too.
This is a craft that is hard to mess up – everyone can handle this one. And such an easy way to decorate your door!
And the best part? After you figure out how to make a hoop wreath for one season, you will be able to whip these up for every season!
Or, you can take off all items and start fresh with new items – just repurpose the hoop! So your fall wreath can become your holiday wreath, etc.
DIY Hoop Wreath Instructions:
- a wooden embroidery ring, 14-18″, or a gold macrame metal ring, 14-18″ (You can repurpose these hoops for other seasons)
- floral wire or twists
- a few faux ornaments and flowers (I found mine at Michaels)
- faux or dried wheat, faut eucalyptus or other greens
- faux flowers
- objects like berries, pinecones or pumpkins (optional)
- Hot Glue Gun (Basically my 5th child! I have been using this gun for 10 years at least. I am not crafty these days but with kids I get so much use out of this. Mine is super reliable because it is heavy duty. These glue sticks fit inside.)
1. Lay Out Floral and Dried Stems on Wreath
Without tying anything down, layer down your pieces in the order they will be on your wreath until you like the look.
I thought it looked best to layer the wheat in the back, followed by eucalyptus and other greens, followed by the heavier and larger pieces like flowers.
You will need to trim the stems a little bit – I only left about 3 inches of the flower stems. I had a few stems that were still showing too much, and I just hot glued a leaf right over them.
You could do a sideways wreath- as in lay all the materials the left side, or a semi circle like I did with the flowers at the bottom.
2. Tie Your Greens and Florals Onto The Hoop
Starting with the wheat in the back, begin tying it all on with the floral wire or twists. Sometimes I had to untie and retie – but it’s really so simple. Flowers and objects are heavy so tie tightly and use hot glue.
3. Add A String Or Ribbon And Hang Up Your DIY Hoop Wreath
How fun is that? Simple, inexpensive, and fun for an afternoon project!
