My favorite way to decorate for the holidays is to incorporate fresh greenery. This Winter Hoop Wreath was so fun and simple to create, so I thought I would share all the details with you today. This week I’m teaming up with some other crafty bloggers as part of the Creative Christmas Week hosted by Remodelaholic. Be sure to check out all of the other projects to inspire your creative juices.

So, on to the wreath!!
The supplies needed for this project are minimal. You can choose to go as neutral or traditional as you like. I’m a little non traditional in that I like to occasionally add pinks into my Christmas decor, but I’ll show you how a few simple tweaks can get this to work with any color scheme.
I’ve put together a video tutorial- which let me tell you was a bit interesting at nearly 40 weeks pregnant. My belly only makes an appearance a few times.
For those that prefer a written tutorial, here are all the details for creating your very own hoop wreath.
- Embroidery Hoop
- Floral Wire
- Floral Tape
- Sharp Shears
- Fresh Greens ( a mix of cedar, spruce, pine and juniper work wonderfully)
- Accent greens fresh or faux
- Pine Cones
- Optional: Faux blooms, berry sprigs or succulents
- Optional: Hot Glue Gun for Securing Faux Blooms or Bows
Step One: Create the Base
Gather your supplies, and start creating small bundles with the greenery to build out your form. Wrap the base of the bundle with floral tape, then attach the bundles using floral wire.
Continue adding greenery until you are satisfied with how full it is. For this wreath you can choose to do a side that will be a little fuller, and house your feature blooms, bows or succulents.
Step 2: Wrap and Attach Accent Greenery and Florals
You will want to continue creating bundles using the floral tape, then attach them to the frame with floral wire.
Continue to play with the placement of greenery and accent pieces. You really can’t go wrong- so remember to have fun! You could stop right here, and your wreath would be gorgeous as is, or you can add a few colorful accents.
Here is a more traditional version. All I did was pop in a sprig of red berries, and they pop beautifully against the green.
If you have this thing for woodland fairies, and dreamy florals then you just might want to add some big beautiful blooms! You can wire, or hot glue them in place. These are faux, but you could also use fresh- just pop them in a watering tube first.
Since I loved it so much I thought… 2 would be better than one. And truth be told I would love to create an even larger grouping.
I hope you enjoyed this project. I love getting crafty during the holidays- and making seasonal wreaths is one of my favorite ways to do that. If you try this project out, I would love for you to tag me on instagram, or leave a picture on my facebook page. What are some of your favorite holiday crafts?
