8 Materials

Today I'm going to show you how to make a diy hoop wreath (using an embroidery hoop) and show you how to combine a floral hoop wreath with a hoop wreath with yarn and macrame!

I'm personally in love with combining farmhouse style decor with a splash of boho decor style with it! I'm super thrilled that macrame is back trending and all of my friendship bracelet making skills I learned as a kid are coming back as a crucial skill I need when incorporating macrame into boho wall decor!

How to Make a Floral Hoop Wreath Tutorial

Materials needed for Boho Decor: Hoop Wreath With Yarn and Macrame:

BOHO Spring Wreath: Do you like a touch of macrame?

If you'd like to add simple macarme knots to your hoop wreath - here is one easy knot you can learn today!

You will eventually need to cut strands of macrame cord and yarn to make the boho yarn style of your hoop wreath. I started with the macrame.

  1. Start by cutting a strand of macramé corn 65" long. 13" of it will be the base cord where you wrap the rest around with knots.  

2. You will want to feed your macrame cord folded in half up behind the loop, pull over, and pull the rest of the strand through. One side will be 13" long and the other side will be 52" long.

If you'd like to learn the rest of the steps for this macrame step, go here:

Here it is when it is done! Now you can see why you needed one strand of the macrame cord to be 4 times the length of the "base cord." Trim off any uneven edges once you've finished making knots all the way down the 13" cord. You will end up making two of these - one on each end.

Now it's time to add the rest of your yarn. Here is the pattern I used. Each of which I cut to be about 30" long that I later trimmed a bit.

  1. Macrame spiral knot
  2. wool yarn
  3. macrame cord not knotted
  4. wool yarn
  5. macrame cord not knotted
  6. gray yarn - 6 strands in a row (which will turn into a center braid)
  7. macrame cord not knotted
  8. wool yarn
  9. macrame cord not knotted
  10. wool yarn
  11. macrame knots on the other end

Now that you have the 6 strands of gray yarn in the center, split them up into 3 groups of 4 single strands of yard. Then take those three groups and braid them together.

This is how the braid should look. Knot it at the end. You can shorten it and trim it later if need be.

When attaching fake greenery or flowers to your wreath, it is important to have two tools - florist wire and a hot glue gun. Wire on some fake greenery and finish it off by securing the greenery/flowers where you want them using a hot glue gun.

There is no right or wrong way to do this - basically play around and add greenery or flowers where you'd like them to be on your wreath. Secure each with floral wire.

Be sure to find greenery that will cover the embroidery hoop screw.

You will have to wire over the yarn and that is ok!

After I was happy with how the greenery and flowers looked, I made sure as much was secured down with wire, and then used hot glue to hold down any loose ends.

I personally like using picture hangers like these! They hold the hoop perfectly and are sturdy and have worked well in my house for any hoop frame I have hung up.

My yarn was significantly longer than I wanted it to be - espeically where I was hanging this on the wall. So when you have a place for it, go ahead and trim some of the yard, and shorten the braid if need be. This is all custom based on what you prefer and where you want to hang it!

I sort of tried making this into a V shape where the macrame on the ends were a bit shorter than the braid in the center, with the rest of the yarn tapering down toward the center.

And there you have the finished product!!

    It really looks great, but I wish there was a better picture of the whole project as it hangs on the door.

    Absolutely lovely! I've saved it to my "make for my daughter" folder. She should have grown up in the 60's - 70's cuz she is such a hippy boho woman!! 😁
