Materials and Supplies
- Different-sized embroidery hoops
- Red/white twine
- Brown twine, thin
- Faux winter greenery
- Scrap burlap or burlap ribbon, thin
- Wire cutters (optional if faux greenery has wires)
Directions for Embroidery Hoop Wreaths
- To begin, wrap an embroidery hoop using the red/white twine. While wrapping the twine around the entire hoop, loop in intervals of roughly half an inch. Secure the twine’s ends using a simple double knot, trimming any excess if necessary.
- Now, separate out and cut the sprigs from your faux winter greenery apart. Glittered boxwood provides a nice wintery feel and should do the trick, but you can try using fresh greenery if preferred.
- With your brown twine, start tying small bits of the greenery onto the hoop’s bottom-right edge.
- Now, you will make a twine/burlap bow for your wreath. Start by snipping a thin piece of burlap (or burlap ribbon) and then tying the bow. Make sure the burlap is cut straight between the threads, which should prevent fraying.
- Thread a strand of red/white twine through the front loop on the burlap bow and tie the red/white twine into a bow too. Secure the twine/burlap bow onto the left bottom end of your embroidery hoop.
- If you would like to make more than one wreath, consider changing up the design slightly. Place a bow at the top end of one embroidery hoop while placing a bow at the bottom of another. Consider draping the winter greenery on top of the hoop rather than just the side or bottom.
- Hang the wreaths using your brown or multi-colored twine—the choice is yours.
