How to Make an Farmhouse Style Hoop Wreath
Hoop wreaths and faux greenery are my newest obsessions. I got this embroidery hoop at Walmart once upon a time for $1.00. I grabbed six of them thinking I would eventually use them for something. After posting my inspiration pictures for our kitchen, I was trying to think how I could make something similar without spending any money!
I am pretty notorious for buying cheap craft items and then keeping them forever because you just never know when you will need them. So, I had all the materials I used for this!
- Embroidery Hoop
- Faux Greenery of Choice
- Zip ties or hot glue
STEP ONE: Cut the greenery apart using the scissors. The greenery I bought was one solid piece so I cut all of the branches off. I originally planned to cut the metal wire too, but it was easier to cut around the plastic and then just pull the branch off the wire.
STEP TWO: I used two zip ties to attach all of the branches together because I did not have a hot glue gun. I would highly suggest using a hot glue gun because you would be able to strategically place each branch. Place an equal amount on each side with the stems facing each other. Glue each stem separately to be sure you get them exactly how you want them. If using a zip tie, like me, pull the zip tie, leaving enough room to fit all of your branches. Then place one side in and then the other. Then pull the zip tie tight and pray your branches don’t move! 🙂 You can also just wrap string around them to hold them together. However, I attempted to do this originally and I was extremely frustrated because they kept coming apart and the string kept catching in the greenery. I thought I was going to lose my marbles.
STEP THREE: After the branches are attached together use string to attach them to the hoop. Again, you could easily use hot glue to attach it. I placed mine lightly on the bottom left-hand side.
After this I attached it to my printer’s drawer. I used the same string I used to tie the greenery, to tie it to the drawer. And now I some cute decor in my kitchen!
