Hoop wreaths are absolutely stunning, and super easy to create! You can add greenery, flowers, or whatever you like to make your DIY wreath unique. Read on to find out how I made this Easy Spring Hoop Wreath!
Spring Hoop Wreath
I have wanted to create one of these hoop wreaths for a while, but didn’t make it a high priority on my SUPER long list of things to do. I am not a florist, floral expert, or anything close to those two things. However, I can create a decent flower arrangement and most of my projects seem to withstand the test of time. Therefore, I’m going to show you how I made a hoop wreath, the easy way!
When I was in Joann’s the other day, looking for materials to make my spring hoop wreath, I stumbled upon a stash of gold hoop wreaths with some greenery already attached! The wreath’s were 50% off, and I had a coupon for an additional 20% off! The greens were pretty, but it definitely needed a little more to plump them up and add some pizzazz!
I bought some more greenery and some beautiful faux flowers. I’d love to tell you the name of the greens and flowers I bought, but they only said “bush” and “flowers” on the tags! Haha! I’m using my very limited floral knowledge to say that I bought faux peonies. Although, the pink ones might be some kind of rose!?
To create my hoop wreath, I cut the greens and flowers using wire cutters. You want to use long stems for the greens, so that they can wrap up the sides of the hoop wreath. For the flowers, you can snip off the heads of the flowers leaving an inch or so on the stem. This makes it easier to attach them to the hoop. You can attach your florals using floral tape, floral wire, hot glue, zip ties, twine, or anything that works! I used hot glue, twine, and the zip ties that were already there when I bought the wreath.
On one side of the hoop wreath, I was able to slide my cut stems through the zip ties that were already there. On the other side, I had to use a glue gun to affix the stems.
I’m so pumped that I found the hoop wreath with greens at Joann’s! Some people might think it’s cheating, but I think it’s just working smarter…not harder! I guess you could call it semi-homemade! Here’s how to get the look!
Details to DIY the Spring Hoop Wreath
- Hoop-steel ring or embroidery hoop
- Greenery (at least three different types)
- Flowers (try to use an odd number of flowers)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Twine, floral wire, floral tape, zip ties or some other way to attach the stems
- Wire cutters
- Ribbon for hanging (I used Hearth & Hand ribbon.)
Cut your stems using wire cutters. Leave some extra room on the end of the stems to attach to the hoop wreath. I used some extra greens and peonies from Joann’s to add to the hoop wreath and make it more springy!
Attach your greenery to the wreath. You can use floral wire, floral tape, hot glue, zip ties and more! The wreath I bought had zip ties and I was able to slide one stem under one zip tie, but on the other side I had to use hot glue.
To make sure that the hot glue held, I tied the stem to the hoop wreath using twine, since I didn’t have any floral tape or wire. It works just as well, so no need to spend more money!
Add your flowers! This is the best part! I chose the white peony for the center because it was the largest. I got the pink peonies to flank the white one.
