With spring right around the corner, I wanted to make a new wreath for our door. I was inspired to create this spring floral hoop wreath because of all of the pretty versions I’ve seen around. This wreath was so fun to make and I absolutely love the colors together.
After glancing through a local thrift store recently, I came across a hoop. I was excited to find this and thought of making this wreath right away. Greenery and florals found for it were pretty inexpensive at just about $1 for each.
The greenery was found at Dollar General. It reminded me of Lamb’s Ear. I found Peonies at Dollar Tree. All of the other items I already had at home.
What You Will Need
- Quilt Hoop
- Greenery Stems (I used 4.)
- Flowers (I used 2 bouquets.)
- Twine or Floral Wire
- Glue Gun
- Burlap (I used a burlap napkin. You can use ribbon.)
- Metal or Wood Word (I used “Welcome” in galvanized metal.)
- First, figure out where you want your greenery to be by bending and shaping them to the hoop’s curves. Set aside.
- Separate the two pieces of hoop by loosening the screw. Place your burlap between the pieces and stretch as you tighten it back up. This will keep your burlap in place.
- Start attaching the greenery with floral wire or twine. I used twine so it would blend with the color of the hoop if seen through the flowers.
- Remove the flower heads from the stems. Discard the stems. Use a pair of scissors to cut off the piece of plastic where the stems were inserted. Be careful that your flowers don’t fall apart.
- Hot glue the flowers where you would like. I opted to place the larger flowers first and then used the smaller flowers as a filler.
- Use fabric or more burlap to create a hanger for your wreath.
I really like the way my spring floral hoop wreath came out. It will be the perfect way to decorate my front door for the next few months.
