You ready for the price? It was $3-can you believe it? I scooped this baby up and went right to the craft store to buy small dowels to fit in the hoop. Here are the dowels I picked up after I gave them a quick coat of black paint:
How To Make A Wagon Wheel Wreath From An Embroidery Hoop
While checking out a barn sale, I found the largest embroidery hoop I’ve ever seen!. Today I will show you how to make a wagon wheel wreath with it.
The embroidery hoop received the same black paint and I added a top coat of silver metallic:
Now that the embroidery hoop and dowels were painted, I used my trusty cordless glue gun to secure the dowels. I will go back and add nails though, as it is not as secure as I would like.
Now I needed something to go in the center of the hoop to try to make it look more like a wagon wheel. Luckily, I had a wood slice in my stash that was the perfect size, so I gave that the same coat of black paint and hot glued it to the center. This also made the dowels more secure:
It still needed a little something so I added a smaller chunky wood slice to the center and I was much happier with how that looked:
Finally, I added gorgeous extra large frosted succulents and peonies that were on Christmas clearance at 80% off.
I secured them with wire so I can change them out if I get bored with them:
This wagon wheel wreath will be hung over my bed, but I didn’t have a chance to do that yet. I will definitely share an updated picture when it is in its new home.
