I’ve never had wreaths that I’ve loved but ever since I made my yarn wrapped summer wreath, I have absolutely loved it. It was so easy to make and was simple and modern. I thought it would be fun make a 4th of July simple DIY wreath since I don’t have very many patriotic decorations. I wrapped the embroidery hoop with a thick dark blue yarn and picked out some red and white flowers and some greenery. I don’t typically decorate with much red, but I feel like the red, white and blue are subtle. This wreath is easy to make for all skill levels.
First start by wrapping your thick yarn around the embroidery hoop until it is completely covered.
Then add your greenery first. Wrap a few pieces of the wire around the greenery.
Next add your flowers. Place them on the greenery to get an idea of where you want them. Then cut the stems as needed. After you have placed all your flowers in the desired place, start wrapping the wire around the stems until they are all secure. You might need to move flowers up and down and tighten wires until it all fits just right.
Now all you need to do is hang it on your door or even inside! You can make it an even more minimalist look by adding less flowers or even putting the flowers directly on the wood hoop with no yarn. So many possibilities.
