The other day on Facebook Live I decided to create a wreath out of an embroidery hoop that I found at our local Habitat for Humanity Restore for only $2!
I was literally creating the wreath with you I hadn’t planned out what I was going to do and I was winging it.
I loved all your suggestions as I went back to read the comments and I took them into consideration after I logged off to finish the wreath.
I have to say I love the outcome!
If I had planned it out a little more I would have purchased different flowers but I like the way it came out.
And the great part is that You can take out the material in the middle and switch out the whole thing for every season!
Even though I don’t have pictures of the steps, since I was doing it live here’s a little direction:
- Find an embroidery hoop the size you want. Mine was 23″ and after doing a little research the one I used is actually a quilting hoop so if you want it large search for those.
- Stain the hoop in the color you’d like. I stained mine with Dark Walnut by Minwax.
- Find a fabric that will fit the hoop.
- To create the fall, I designed the “fall” in PicMonkey and printed it out.
- I then placed it under the fabric and traced it with an ordinary black sharpie. I probably would have used a different color if I had one one hand.
- Then place the fabric in the hoop pulling the sides so it’s tight. Then trim off the excess.
- Hot glue any flowers or accessories you want.
That’s it! It was so easy and I can’t wait to make some more!
