DIY FLORAL HOOP WREATH
I’m in the process of saving for our master bedroom update so the decor budget is pretty much on hold at the moment. I know I want something simple over our bed and initially thought some sort of art. However, I keep seeing these incredible, simple DIY floral hoop wreaths on Pinterest and Instagram so I made my own. It’s a simple quick project that won’t break the bank. Since the whole project costs less than 10 bucks, I can check off “over the bed” decor!
- Embroidery Hoops – I found mine at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% off coupon so it was less than $5. I bought a large one that’s 23″ and a smaller one that’s 12″
- Greenery – I chose a few stems from the floral section at Hobby Lobby because they were having a 50% off sale on stems. There was a great garland of greenery but it wasn’t included in the sale so it was a no go. The garland was $16 but the stems were only $2 each after the sale. The whole point is DIY and saving money so I can actually afford my bedroom update.
- Floral wire – I had green wire on hand already but you could use whatever you like. Or if you don’t have wire or don’t like it, you can use twine.
- Wire cutters – You’ll need these to cut your stems to place around the hoops
Make Your Wreath
Decide if you want yours centered or asymmetrical. I like both options I’ve seen. I decided to go with centered because my hubs is super picky about things being level and centered.
I took out the inner ring of each hoop and used those. I figure I can find another use for the outer ring.
Start by cutting apart the stems so they aren’t in one big clump. In hindsight, it would be easier to use the garland since it will wrap around the hoop evenly. But, you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit, right. So it took some wiggling, but I finally had enough separate small clumps to start wiring to the hoop. I kept adding until I used most of two stems. I wired at the tops of the stems and random places in the middle so they wouldn’t all hang down. For the small hoop, I snipped off part of a boxwood stem (also from Hobby Lobby) and wired it to the hoop. And that’s it! Play with it a bit until you have the loose pieces you like and hang it on a nail.
A simple DIY that won’t break the bank. Yes please!
Now if I can just find time to go get the wood for shiplap, I can move along on the master bedroom update – you can see our plans here!
