DIY outdoor hoop wreaths super easy to create! Add greenery, flowers, ribbon to make your DIY wreath unique.
My version of window shopping is going through stores thinking to myself “I can make that! and that in the right color! and that for soooo much cheaper!”.
So when I was down at Hobby Lobby and the florals were 50%, I knew I wanted to make a new cute hoop wreath for our freshly (again) painted front door. Btw, if you go to Hobby Lobby, and the floral section isn’t on sale, wait a week because they go on sale every other week.
Other than waiting for the sealer to dry, this took about 30 minutes to put together and cost about $35 – confession though, the white flower was over $10 by itself but I HAD to have it. I’ve made a butterfly wreath before, but this hoop wreath was a new one.
Supplies for Making A Hoop Wreath
- Hoop-steel ring or embroidery hoop
- Outdoor wood sealer (I used this spar polyurethane)
- Greenery (I used lamb’s ear and white flowers)
- Flowers (I used blush peonies and a larger white flower)
- Twine, floral wire, or strong zip ties to attach the stems
- Very strong scissors or wire snips
- Ribbon or a door hanger
If you are using a wood embroidery hoop, I especially recommend several coats of weatherproofing eurethane. I generally use this one and it works great. I put about 5 coats on ours since our door is not covered at all.
After you have gathered your supplies, attach the greenery evenly around half of the hoop wreath, making sure the large flowers cover the area of the wood hoop screws. Cut any extra long stems as necessary.
On the flowers make sure to leave about 5-7 inches of stem to attach them to the wreath.
Attach the leaves and flowers to the frame using large zip ties or floral wire. While I would have preferred clear zip ties, I had black on hand, which makes it easy to show you guys! Trim the tails from the zip ties.
