Learn how to make your own simple and modern DIY floral hoop wreath to add to your fall decor this season!
It may still be hot and sweaty out, but fall is around the corner, which gives me an excuse to get crafty and switch up some of our home decor! I am so looking forward to cooler days, and that’s making me want to incorporate something a bit more cozy into our home. Call it wishful crafting! Ha!
This simple and modern DIY floral hoop wreath is the answer! It can definitely be used year round but has a few touches that feel like fall to me. Like white chunky yarn, which instantly cozies up anything! Just look at that yummy texture:
Just because it’s fall themed doesn’t mean everything has to be all brown and orange. One of my favorite autumnal color combos is peach and gray, and this little hoop wreath puts that combination to work. Ready to make your own wreath? This baby is super easy and definitely won’t take more than an hour to make. Let’s do this!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY floral hoop wreath:
- Gold Metal Macrame Ring
- Yarn (I used All Things You Acrylic and Wool Blend in Fleece White and All Things You Acrylic Baby Yarn in Soft Grey)
- Faux Florals (I used two peach peonies and a bundle of succulent branches)
- Floral Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun
Start by cutting your yarn into several long pieces. You will want your cuts to be at least twice as long as you want the final fringe to be. I used both a chunky white yarn and a light gray baby weight yarn, and really like the look of the two together. Feel free to use whatever colors and yarn weights you like.
After you have your pieces cut, you will attach them to the macrame ring by folding them in half, wrapping the folded end over the ring, and pulling the tails of the yarn through the loop (see image above). Pull to tighten. I alternated the white and gray yarn somewhat randomly.
If you like, use your scissors to trim up the yarn after you are done attaching it to the hoop. I trimmed mine up to all about the same length. I liked the look of a little variation, but if you want, you can cut a super straight line or even try staggered lengths or a point.
After you are happy with your yarn, it’s time to attach those florals! I like to start with greenery for my base so I chose these succulent branches for this wreath, and I think their gray-green color is perfect for fall. I started by attaching the branches to the hoop using some floral wire. This keeps them securely attached, but a few drops of hot glue helped to keep them perfectly positioned. I made sure to keep the wire where it would be hidden behind my peonies.
Next, I pulled the peonies off of their stems and used hot glue to position them on the branches and hoop. Be careful not to burn your fingers! After the peonies were in position, I flipped the whole wreath over. I cut a small piece of felt and glued it down to cover the flower backs and keep everything secure.
Once the glue has dried, your DIY floral hoop wreath is ready to hang!
I love how simple this project is! Seriously so easy, but still such pretty results. Have you tried making a modern hoop wreath? Would you give it a try?
