DIY Cottage Style Wreath
I have always loved do-it-yourself projects. From sewing to crafting to painting, you name it, I’ve tried it. Even as a little girl I loved sewing and doing crafts with my grandma. When I got married and had my own house to decorate, I filled it with all my home decor projects. Fast forward to life with three little kids and I don’t have nearly as much time to get creative. Pretty much any project I take on needs to be done during nap time.
This floral hoop wreath is a simple and quick project that even I have time for. Seriously, it only took about 30 minutes from start to finish and I love how it turned out.
Follow these easy steps to make you own.
- Two different types of fabric flowers
- Faux greenery
- Wide ribbon
- 14 inch embroidery hoop
- Floral wire
- Wire cutter
- Hot glue gun
Loosen the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop to remove the inner hoop. We will not need the outside hoop for this project.
The flowers and greenery come in bunches attached to one large stem. Use the wire cutter to separate each flower/branch from the main stem.
Now is the fun part! Start arranging the flowers and greenery along the bottom end of the hoop. I put the flowers toward the center and the greenery along each side but you can arrange them however you prefer. Secure each individual stem to the hoop with floral wire. Wrap the wire around the stem and hoop in two places to make sure they stay put. Use the wire cutter to remove any excess stem. Don’t worry if the back looks sloppy. You won’t be able to see it once the wreath is hanging.
Cut a 12 inch piece of ribbon. Bring the two ends together around the top end of the hoop and fold the top edge over. Use the glue gun to connect the ends. Press down down with your fingers for about 10 seconds while the glue dries.
And that is all there is to it! Something about floral decor just makes me happy so I hung this wreath on my front porch for a gorgeous pop of color. It would would definitely work as an indoor wreath as well.
