Today I am going to share with you how to make a simple Farmhouse hoop wreath! This project didn’t cost my anything as I already had everything on hand, but this is a very budget friendly project even if you don’t have the things on hand yet!
What I love about this wreath besides being a budget friendly decor item is that it can be made for any season depending on what type of greenery that you use, it can also be made in any size that you want based on the hoop that you use to make your wreath!
Farmhouse Hoop Wreath Supplies
- Embroidery hoop
- Jute Twine
- Fabric – 2 inches by 18 inches
I used a small embroidery hoop to make my DIY farmhouse hoop wreath. I bought a collection of embroidery hoops from the thrift store some time ago and have used them for different things around the house in my decor. Embroidery hoops are often very cheap at a thrift store which makes them great for using them to make an affordable wreath to add to your home. For this DIY farmhouse hoop wreath you will only need the inside section of the embroidery hoop.
I selected a slightly dusty greenery that I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot some years ago. A simple garland would work as well and even some seasonal floral picks would work! My greenery came on a bendable wire base so I thought that I would be able to wrap it around the embroidery hoop and call it good, but that didn’t work so I used some twine to hold the beginning of the greenery onto the hoop.
Continue wrapping the greenery around the hoop until you get to the end of the greenery. Then go back around and tie the greenery to the hoop using the jute twine. I tied mine at the top, bottom and both sides of the hoop. The jute hides perfectly with the natural color of the embroidery hoop. I try to cut the twine as close to the knot as possible. If you are using seasonal floral picks you could use a hot glue gun to attach your picks to the hoop wreath.
If you have any of this greenery from the Target dollar spot from a few years ago, you know that it is spaced out a bit between each greenery sprig, so I ended up having one large bare spot near the top of my hoop wreath.
To fix this problem I created a bow out of some scrap fabric that I had. The fabric originally came from Walmart and I just love the neutral texture that it has! I left the edges raw because I like the way that it looked. If you don’t have fabric on hand you can also use 2 inch wide ribbon to make the bow, or leave the bow off all together. You can really make this DIY hoop wreath any way that you like!
To attach my bow to my hoop wreath I slide a bit of jute twine thought the back center of the bow and tied it onto the wreath form.
I hung my DIY Farmhouse hoop wreath on a vintage white picture frame and paired it with a set of my DIY chippy white candlesticks to add to my sunroom fireplace mantel.
This simple Farmhouse hoop wreath is just what this space needed! It fits in so well with the rest of my chippy farmhouse decor in my sunroom!
