DIY Minimal Wreath

2 Materials
30 Minutes

Hey, so this is a first!

The first time, that I’ve made a wreath I mean (all of the wreath tutorials on this blog so far have been by other contributors). In truth, I’m not entirely sure what’s come over . . why I suddenly felt like I could and needed to make a wreath. Maybe its the fancy new glue gun that has come into my possession or maybe it’s simply the change in season?

i had envisioned using REAL succulents for this wreath- but turns out faux ones are just as good. And I may have cheated a little by using an embroidery hoop to create the base for this wreath. I wanted to keep it simple.

Sometimes simple is good right?

As for the tutorial ? Well it really is self explanatory once you see the pictures.


  • 8″ Embroidery hoop
  • Succulent plants
  • Glue gun
  • Jute string
  • Clippers
  • Faux succulent flowers and leaves


1 . Separate the embroidery ring. You will only need to use the outer ring to make this wreath for a more minimal look.

2Clip the ends of the plastic succulent flowers and leaves

3. Using your glue gun, start sticking the succulent leaves to one side of the hoop – making sure to follow the curve of the ring. Be careful of your fingers - glue gun is HOT! Make sure when you are gluing the leaves in place there arent any visible gaps

Next glue the leaves in the reverse direction , leaving a small gap for the larger succulent flowers. The larger succulent is really heavy so make you use a good amount of glue to secure it in place.

Wrap the jute string around the top of the wreath to create a loop to hang the wreath.

And you are done!

As you can see I hung my wreath from a cute self-adhesive on my glass door.
