Christmas is in the air and I’ve started crafting decor for the season! Mini wreaths are fun to decorate with – put them on a tiered tray, use them as office and cubicle decor, or even create a group of them as wall art! This homemade embroidery hoop wreath comes together so easy it’ll be a breeze to create a few for everywhere around your house! See how and create your own.
Supplies needed to make your own homemade embroidery hoop wreath:
- Buffalo Plaid Bandana
- Embroidery Hoop
- Hot Glue Gun
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Faux Greenery
- Die-Cutting Machine
- Iron or Heat press
Step 1. First, measure your embroidery hoop and size the design you want to fit inside the space. I have provided a free snowflake design that you can trace and cut using your electronic die-cutter. If you don’t have one, you can look for a simple design to cut using scissors! Or even simpler, get some iron on letters and create your own phrase.
Step 2. Cut and weed your design out of the vinyl.
Step 3. Remove the inner circle of the embroidery hoop and use it to measure and cut a square of fabric.
Step 4. Iron the design onto the fabric.
Step 5. Once completely ironed, remove the carrier sheet.
Step 6. Center the fabric and sandwich it between the circles of the embroidery hoop.
Step 7. Tighten the pin on top of the hoop and cut the excess fabric on the back, cutting as close to the hoop as possible so it looks clean.
Step 8. Pull off leaves from your greenery. The amount would depend on how big your hoop is and how full you want your homemade embroidery hoop wreath to be.
Step 9. If yours are like mine, cut off the bottom part that would connect to the stems.
Step 10. Carefully attach the leaves around the hoop with a glue gun. Make sure to take time holding onto each leaf grouping while it dries onto the hoop as it can pull away easily.
Step 11. Fill in thin areas with more leaves and berries. And you are done!
These homemade embroidery hoop wreaths are so customizable with different designs, sayings, sizes and fabric! I just love this buffalo plaid though – so Christmas-y feeling. What Christmas pattern do you love the most?
