DIY Embroidery Hoop Wreath - Featuring The Homestead Haven


The holiday season is fast approaching and while some may not want to see the sight of anything Christmas until their Thanksgiving turkey is cleared off of their table, I will apologize in advance, because this is just the first Christmas project of many to come in the weeks ahead!

I was fortunate enough to collaborate with the lovely ladies of  THE HOMESTEAD HAVEN for this post. Amanda & Renee create these adorable SHIPLAP MINI SIGNS, and when it arrived on my doorstep I couldn't wait to get to work on a little wreath to adorn it with.


I am a sucker for some cute packaging, and loved how they packaged 
their product with attention to detail and their logo attached.

HERE IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

- 1 mini embroidery hoop
- linen ribbon
- Christmas greenery
- floral wire
- hot glue gun
- hot glue sticks
- twine
- sicssors
- wire cutters
- letter stamps
- stamp ink pad


1. Start by laying out all of your supplies.


2. With most faux greenery garland that you get, you can pluck the greenery right off of the plastic stem. This saves you from having to cut or waste. Remove approximately three to five pieces of greenery off of the stem for your wreath.



3. Once your greenery is ready, cut approximately five to six inches of wire.


4. Place your greenery on the embroidery hoop where you desire it and then begin wrapping the floral wire around the greenery and the embroidery hoop beginning at the base of your greenery and working upwards.



5. Wrap the floral wire about 2/3rds of the way up your greenery piece, leaving the top portion to flow naturally.


6. Take your smaller pieces of greenery and hot glue them on the opposite side of the hoop as well as on top of where the floral wire is showing.




7. Cut your ribbon two to three inches longer than each side of your hoop. This will give you enough allowance to center the wording on the ribbon properly inside of the hoop once you are completed stamping. 

8. Pick out the letters that you desire for the word(s) that you would like to spell out and hand stamp them onto your ribbon.


9. Lastly, place your ribbon inside of the embroidery hoop 
and pull tightly on the ribbon as you are closing up the hoop. 

(TIP: I actually recommend adding the ribbon into the hoop as your FIRST step. I chose to not show the ribbon added in my first posts so that you could see the step by step details clearly.)


10. Add twine and tie around the hanger placed on the back of the SHIPLAP SIGN.


That's it! A super simple project while the kiddos are napping or at night while watching your favorite show with a glass of hot chocolate (or wine)...

  1. Where did you purchase the linen ribbon? I can’t seem to be able to find any. Thanks.
