We have seen a lot of lovely embroidery hoop wreaths lately and decided to make one of our own. This wreath comes together easily with just a few supplies. What we love best is that it can span the seasons, just by using different words and floral stems.
- Two different size embroidery hoops
- tea towel
- sharpie marker
- template for the words you want to use
- Painters Tape
- floral stems of your choice
- hot melt glue
How To Make Your Own Fall Embroidery Hoop Wreath
I had a few leftover paper plates from Thanksgiving and decided to use this for my template. If you don’t happen to have something like this, make your own word template on your computer using a font you like and print it out.
The center of the plate was cut out in order to have a flat surface to work with.
The template was secured to the back of a tea towel with painters tape to keep it from moving while tracing the words.
With the right lighting, it was easy to trace the letters onto the tea towel using a sharpie marker.
When finished, the tea towel was put into the smaller of the two embroider hoops and the extra material was trimmed off. Next, decide on the placement of the hoops. You can attach the smaller hoop to the either side, top or bottom of the larger hoop.
Decide Hoop Placement and Floral Stems
Keep in mind that only one ring of the larger embroidery hoop is used for the wreath. I laid them on the table and played around with the placement.
It looked nice with the smaller hoop attached to the top of the larger one.
But I liked it a little better with the smaller hoop attached to the side of the larger one. Next decide on the floral stems. I had a lot of sunflowers left over from my daughter’s wedding and they always look lovely for early fall projects. Mums would be pretty too, or any other fall variation you like. To attach flowers to the wreath use a small dot of hot melt glue.
For another variation, I attached fall colored stems using twine. The point is, have fun with it and add what you like or what you might have on hand. Attach the two hoops together with a dab of hot melt glue, and tie on a piece of twine or glue on a ribbon to use for hanging.
In the end, I decided on the fall branch stems because I have a lot of sunflower items already, but both of them are beautiful.
