As you know, embroidery hoop wreathes are all the rage right now and as much as I love Halloween, I love the simple colors of fall even more. This wreath takes no time at all to make and what I love the most is that since I used the embroidery hoop, I actually got TWO wreathes for the price of one!! So I already started on the Christmas version of my embroidery hoop wreath! Let’s stick with the program though and start with this easy DIY Fall Embroidery Hoop Wreath.
Fall Embroidery Hoop Wreath
What you need:
FolkArt Milk Paint with paint brush (Veranda Blue pictured)
Dried Flowers of Choice (at least 3 different kinds)
Ribbon (mine from Hobby Lobby)
I started by unscrewing the hoops at the top and separating them into two hoops. Set one hoop aside for another project. Then I used my FolkArt Milk Paint and painted my other hoop inside and out. This isn’t a required step, but I loved the option of adding more color to the wreath this way.
I originally had selected a red to paint the hoop with, but decided I wanted something more neutral and contrasting, so I changed my mind and used Veranda Blue in the end. I LOVE FolkArt Milk Paint and you can see THESE POSTS for other Milk Paint ideas.
After the hoop was painted, I started trimming my flowers off the stems and then arranging them on the wreath. I used the “furry ball” flowers for the base of the wreath and hot glued them on first going up either sides. Then I started slowly adding flowers on either sides. I tried to glue them on evenly on the sides, meeting in the center bottom of the hoop.
Once all the flowers were added, I made a simple bow using the ribbon I got from Hobby Lobby. I wanted to go with a contrasting ribbon for this project, so I selected a black and “natural” ribbon, but I was SO close to grabbing a great black and white gingham that looked pretty amazing with the project too. Go bold, I say.
