Make a Simple Hoop Christmas Wreath
If you are coming from Patina and Paint, welcome! I am so excited to be part of this Christmas in July blog hop hosted by Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip! I so appreciate being a part of this fun hop! I hope you have fun visiting all of the bloggers participating!
Make a simple hoop Christmas wreath with a 24″ embroidery hoop. If the decorations you add are not too heavy, you can divide the hoop and make two wreaths out of it.
For this Christmas in July blog hop, I just dug through my boxes of holiday greenery. I selected some pieces of faux white pine and some pine cones.
Use a combination of hot glue and wire to secure the branches to the hoop.
Here you can see the wire I have used to secure the branches.
You can continue to add all of the evergreen you want. Take a pinecone and a wire as shown.
Pull the wires up as shown above.
Twist the wires together as shown and now you can use the wires to attach the pinecone to the hoop. Repeat the same thing with two additional pine cones and add them to your hoop. If you need to, add some hot glue to secure the cones. Your wreath should be looking something like this now. You could leave this like this and have a simple wreath. I wanted to add a little more to my wreath. I began with a pair of little antler ornaments with the strings cut off of them. Secure the antlers to your pine cones and the hoop. I found my antlers at Hobby Lobby, but Michael’s has them, too! A small bow tied from a classic plaid is enough to not hide the pine cones. I decided to add a couple of more loops of ribbon, which is just enough. This will look lovely for Christmas and winter.
Perhaps you are inspired and dreaming of what you will be creating for the holidays this year! Only 153 days until Christmas! Now off to B4 and Afters!
