Oh, my goodness. I bought the components for an embroidery hoop wreath at least 3 months ago. I think it is about time I show you How To Make An Embroidery Hoop Wreath, don’t you?
I was down in California watching some of the grandkiddos after a new grandbaby was born. My son and daughter-in-law insisted that I take a break. I already knew what I wanted to do. Head to Hobby Lobby and get some inspiration.
I could envision what I wanted to buy and make. I took my time walking around, browsing and enjoying a little time away. I walked out of the store with exactly what I needed To Make An Embroidery Hoop Wreath.
What I bought:
Embroidery Hoops in 3 sizes
Raffia Wrapped Wire
I also needed:
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
Pine Cones or Sugar Berries
Let me show you How To Make An Embroidery Hoop Wreath…
I took leafy stems completely apart, so I could attach the smaller pieces to the embroidery hoop.
Using hot glue I began attaching the leaves and fern pieces. It took a little patience to wait for the hot glue to “hold” the leaves on the hoop.
The next step was to add the inside hoop. This created a more sturdy wreath and allowed me more area to add the fern.
Now that the leaves and fern pieces were right where I wanted them, I attached the sugar berries. Once again, with hot glue.
It was looking pretty good at this point. Using the raffia wrapped wire, I wrapped it around the hoop. I started at the leaves and all the way around. I pulled the wire taunt to keep it from loosening up.
My final step was to add sprigs of moss. I wanted it to look natural and loose. Almost like it was growing under the leaves and around the wreath.
Can I just say, it is exactly what I envisioned.
With the rest of the hoops, I would like to make more to hang as a “set” in my living room mirror or above our bed. What are your thoughts?
I also have an idea for a Christmas decoration. That post is coming sometime soon…
