Hi everyone and thanks so much for visiting!!
You guys!!!! Christmas is coming!!! Yessss!!! I’m so excited as I love getting to celebrate it with my three boys! It’s so much fun to get to see how excited they get about everything, but enough about my excitement, let’s get to today’s DIY project!
As usual, I’m always trying to add more holiday decor on a budget, and I did it!
I made an embroidery hoop Christmas wreath for $14 dollars! It was so easy, too! I didn’t even use any glue! Talk about no gluey mess!!!!🙌
This project would be such a cute, simple project to do that won’t break into that Christmas budget! Ummm, yes, please!
So let’s get this Christmas wreath party started already, shall we!?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Embroidery Hoop. I used the 18” size and I pulled it apart into 2 to make 2 wreaths out of it.
- Paddle Wire
- Christmas Floral. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for 50% off so they were $6 dollars each. I bought 2 per wreath.
- *Optional* Wood Stain. I used this dark walnut stain, but it isn’t necessary. I do think it makes it look a bit more rustic and Christmasy though.
- *Old towel or sock if you do choose to stain your embroidery hoop like I did.
That’s it! Now comes the super easy, fun part! Making it!!!
Separate your embroidery hoop out into two so that way you can use that extra hoop it comes with for another wreath! Either this same one or anything else you come up with. Check out My DIY Succulent Wreath for another idea on how to use your embroidery hoop. I love that wreath, too!
If you’re staining your hoop, grab your old towel and your stain of choice, and stain that hoop on up! FYI, I did it outside on an old tablecloth. Let that dry and then you can get down to business! Wreath making business that is!😉 And actually, I didn’t even wait for mine to dry because I wanted to finish it before I went and picked up my son from school. So, if you’re like me and feel like living on the wild side, don’t even let it dry!😜😆
Once your hoop is dry (or not!😉), set your Christmas Floral on the hoop where you like it. Take your paddle wire, cut a piece long enough to tie down your floral, and start wrapping your wire around your floral and the hoop so that they’re bound together. Do this in multiple areas so the floral is nice and secure to your hoop. Once the top part of the floral is all tied down, take the stem and push it towards the opposite side of the hoop and secure that with your paddle wire as well. It may need multiple places of tying down, because the stem is pretty stiff.
