Making an embroidery hoop wreath is really easy and adds such a beautiful touch to any room.
Ever since we started renovating Gabrielle’s bedroom, she has been talking about how she wants to decorate her bedroom. You can imagine how excited she is now that her bedroom is painted. Oh that reminds me, I never shared with you the paint color we went with. Oups! I’ll get right on that.
Now that her bedroom is painted she’s been dreaming of different types of decorations she wants. I’m all but certain she has a list somewhere of all her ideas. hehe Anyways, the other day she asked if she could make one decoration piece now, even though we are not ready to actual decorate her bedroom. I figured why not? She headed to our craft supplies and grabbed some supplies to make an Embroidery Hoop Wreath.

DIY Floral Embroidery Hoop Wreath
Step 1: Gabrielle chose flowers that had colors that complimented each other. What drove her to this color scheme was the skull floral centerpiece she made last year for Halloween. She loved the colors of the skull’s flowers so she decided that she would use the same color scheme. Plus the fact that we had some flowers left over from that project was an added bonus. We just had to buy blue flowers to complete it. She cut the flower stems to make it easier to prearrange the layout of the flowers on the embroidery hoop.
Step 2: Now that the flowers were cut, she was able to determine the layout she wanted. She placed the largest flower in the center and added the little flowers around that flower. Now that she had a good idea of the layout she proceeded to the next step.
Step 3: When she decided on the arrangement of the flowers, she plugged in our hot glue gun. Once the hot glue gun was ready, she glued on the flowers one by one in the same arrangement she decided on, starting with the large flower. When all the flowers were placed she cut off the stems that were sticking out the back of the embroidery hoop.
Voilà the finished result:
How to make an embroidery hoop wreath
I can’t get over how pretty the embroidery hoop wreath turned out. Isn’t it just lovely? It looks so pretty up against her bedroom wall. I’m not quite certain where she will hang it when the room is finished, but I’m certain she’s going to give it a prime location. She’s quite proud of how it turned out, I think she should be proud too.
I sure hope you have been inspired to craft something for yourself!
Have yourself a MARVELOUS day!
