DIY Spring Embroidery Hoop Wreath

I’ve been busy decorating my home for spring.  I wanted a new wreath to hang on the mirror over our fireplace and made a DIY Spring Embroidery Hoop Wreath that I love.

DIY Spring Embroidery Hoop Wreath

The inspiration for this wreath came from a bag of embroidery hoops that I found in my attic.  One of my good friends bought the hoops at a local thrift store knowing that I would find a crafty use for them.  I had forgotten all about them and when I recently found them, I was inspired to make a spring wreath for our mantel.

I love how this wreath looks on the mirror over my mantle.  The combination of peonies, cherry blossoms, and eucalyptus screams spring to me.  

You are also getting a sneak peek of my spring mantel.  I’ll share more of it very soon.

How to make a Spring Embroidery Hoop Wreath

I’m calling my wreath an embroidery hoop wreath but technically it is a quilting hoop wreath.  A quilting hoop is thicker and a bit more sturdy than an embroidery hoop.

Supplies

This post may contain affiliate links. For full disclosure go here.

  • Embroidery Hoop or Quilting Hoop – I used a 10″ quilting hoop.  A 16″ hoop would be a good size for a door.
  • Florals  – I used one eucalyptus stem, three peony stems, and one plum blossom stem from Michael’s.
  • Glue Gun
  • Wire Cutters – I like to use tin snips to cut thick faux floral wire stems.
  • Fishing Line or Wire for Hanging the Wreath
  • Gold Spray Paint

(The picture shows two eucalyptus and two plum stems but I only used one of each.)

Procedure

Step One – Paint the embroidery hoop 

An embroidery hoop’s natural wood color makes a pretty base for a wreath.  I chose to paint my embroidery hoop gold using spray paint that I had on-hand.

Step Two – Prepare the florals

Cut the eucalyptus and plum stems into small sections.  Cut each peony stem close to the base of the flower.

Step Three – Glue the florals into place

Plan out your design and then glue each stem into place.  I started with a layer of eucalyptus.

Hang and Enjoy!

I was so excited when I finished this wreath that I snapped this picture of it and sent it to my friend.  I like how it looks on a solid background and think that it would look great hanging on a door or wall.

I used a command hook and fishing line to hang this wreath on my mirror.  It wouldn’t hang straight, so I used hot glue to secure it exactly where I wanted it.DIY Embroidery Hoop Wreath - Get the tutorial to make this wreath for your home. #wreath #springwreath #wreathtutorial #springcraft #springmantel

  1. Wow, I love this and would like to link my post to this how-to if you are you okay with that? Beautiful idea to add to that stunning mirror!

  2. I like how you combined the ball jars and insulators on the mantle. It feels very light which works well with a light wreath rather than one heavy and full.

  3. This wreath is so pretty, Paula! it looks like it was made for that mirror. I love the gold tones with the pink. Peonies are one of my very favorites! I recently bought some peony tubers to plant, and they are just about the color of the ones in your wreath. Have you been enjoying the sunshine here in Virginia? I’m still waiting for slightly warmer temps.

    1. Hi, Kim! I also love peonies!! There are a bunch here that the former owner planted years and years ago. They are one of my very favorite flowers. Our weather has been so nice and I’ve been enjoying it like crazy.
