This is one of those projects I have wanted to try for a very long time and when I saw the opportunity to be able to share in the excitement of making an embroidery hoop wreath for myself I knew I needed to share the process with you all and the DIY Decor Box subscribers. No it isn’t a new idea but it’s too fun not to recreate!

No running to the craft store to hunt down all the supplies. Just have it delivered to your door planned, packaged and ready to make!
The first step is to decide what ribbon or fabric you want to stretch across the diameter of your hoop. I used a chunky piece of canvas fabric to adhere my heat transfer vinyl on. Follow the manufacters directions for the correct application process on this step. In general, iron your fabric before placing the transfer, cover with wax paper and move a hot iron slowly across the surface of the wax paper.
Slowly peel away the top layer of paper to reveal your new transfer! Spot check in a corner before commiting to the peel.
Next, lightly stretch your fabric between the inner and outer hoops and tighten the outer hoop with the clamp. Fold and extra fabric around the edges and secure with hot glue.
After you have the fabric secured in place, snip your greenery to desired length with wire cutters before securing them to your embroidery hoop wreath.
Secure the greenery with a small pool of hot glue and apply pressure until the glue starts to get tacky and hold the greens in place. You could also reinforce this step with floral wire or zip ties if needed.
Top off with a cute bow and your wreath is complete! I enjoy a simple mezzy bow with tattered edges but you can certainly modify it to fit your own style.
