Love it? Share it!

Hello Friends ~ I’ve got another DIY up my sleeve! I’m super excited about these simple and sweet DIY hoop wreaths that I created for my daughter’s room! I was first inspired to create this style of hoop wreath when I started seeing simple modern wreaths all over Pinterest. I’ve pinned a lot of inspiration if you’re looking for even more ideas!

However, for my daughter’s room I was looking for large wall decor that didn’t overwhelm her small room and these jumped out as a unique way to add pops of color and a simple gallery to dress up her walls. I showed little sneak peeks along the way to my sweet Instagram friends and they asked for a tutorial: so here it is!

Supplies

  • Embroidery Hoops in multiple sizes (remember, you will need to measure your space to know how many you need)
  • Floral Wire

  • Multiple Florals. I had a specific look and color palette I wanted so I used:
    • Two coordinating bushes with various types of flowers, stems, berries and other accents

    • Whimsical gold garland for a girly touch

DIY Hoop Wreaths | Tutorial

First things first, measure your space and lay out your hoops as you’d like to hang them on the wall. (Or hang them from the ceiling, which is another pretty option I’ve seen.) This step is important so that you know where you will have overlap on your hoops. If you don’t plan this step in advance then it is possible that your florals will overlap and all blend together once you hang them.

Second, separate your florals and greens from the stems. One of the benefits of finding this pretty pink bush is that it has lots of variety to offer. Not only does it have these whimsy flowers, it also includes berries, grasses, leaves, stems and pussy willow. So as you’re trying to find florals for your DIY hoop wreaths make sure to get the most for your money with lush bushes.

I started by removing the gold leaf garland from the larger branch. For this it was simple to just pull them right off with no cutting necessary. For the greenery and floral bush just use heavy duty scissors, wire cutters, or tin snips from your hubby’s stash. 😉

Third, cast a vision! If you have an idea in your head of what you want your final DIY hoop wreaths to look like then place your florals and greenery on the hoops and play around with them until you figure out what you like. This step is important so that you aren’t redoing your wreaths later. And if you aren’t a visual person who already has a vision of your finished product, then browse around Pinterest or another source to get ideas.

Tips:

  • When arranging your florals, make sure to place the largest and fullest pieces in the back. For example, if I placed my gold leaves behind my greens they would be completely covered up and not visible in the finished product.
  • Try to create variety in your hoops. If you make them all very full then they will eventually all blend together. If that is the look you’re going for then fantastic! But if you want each hoop to be more defined then create some with fuller arrangements and some with simple arrangements.

Fourth, once you are happy with your test subjects, start attaching each piece. I used floral wire for the greens because they were heavy and hot glue wouldn’t hold them securely. Make sure to turn the wire so that the twisted section is hidden in the back. Then continue to add each piece with either wire or hot glue depending on how and where it needs to be placed.

For my florals, I used hot glue because they were light weight and I didn’t want to leave stems attached. Therefore, I had to use hot glue to attach the heads of the flowers.

Tip:

  • Depending on how you place your greens or garlands, there will be a central section where the ends of the stems meet up. I used floral heads to cover those areas so they didn’t show. This also hid any wires that didn’t blend in with the greenery.

Fifth, repeat the process for as many hoops as you need! My daughter’s room had two sections of wall on either side of the bed that I wanted these to occupy. In order to coordinate them I created my DIY hoop wreaths in two groupings. One went around a sign and the other grouping was stand alone.

Once you’ve completed as many hoops as you need for your space you can simply hang them with nails or by dangling them from fishing line! Personally, I really hate working with fishing line. It is like trying to tie a knot in a greased rope. Blah! So I went with nails for most of my hoops and then used fishing line for the smallest one to hang overtop of others. This way I could layer the hoops as much as possible.
