Thought I’d share the simple steps to making the holiday hoop wreath I whipped up today. It really is so easy, and it doesn’t cost much to make a pretty big statement. You’ll need an embroidery hoop, stems or flowers of your choice and some jute twine.
Start with a base layer of the greenery you want to be most prevalent. For me, I wanted the evergreen to stand out most, so I used it as my base layer and attached it along the stem with small bits of jute twine and trimmed the ends. Next, I like to intermix a couple more types of faux greens, and I either tie them off on top of the base layer, or I simply stuff them under the twine already holding the base layer.
I like to do two sections that point away from each other, and then you can use smaller pieces and bits of greenery to hide the overlapping stems from both sections. Or you could layer the greenery in one direction all the way around the wreath.
For these wreaths, I chose the most realistic looking evergreen stems I could find, along with some faux eucalyptus and white berries. I almost used red to get into the Christmas spirit, but I thought I could get away with leaving these up after Christmas a bit longer if they read “winter” with the white berries.
I hope this was helpful if you’re looking to do a quick and easy DIY this holiday season! I love how these simple wreaths can be customized by style and changed up by the season. They are some of my favorite DIY’s yet!
