As one season winds down and another begins, I love to get a little craft! One of my favorite decor items to make myself is a wreath. I like that they are fairly easy, can be done in so many different ways and adorn your house to welcome in that new season. Living in New England we definitely have all four, so I love getting inspired by the what the the vibe of the season is and let our home reflect that. I shared these over on my Instagram @Jordecor and everyone loved them so I thought I should share them here too.
Today I’m going to create a very easy hoop wreath tutorial. I created two simple Fall Hoop Wreaths for our new barn doors. I like that they aren’t too big and bulky. Plus they have a more modern vibe than the grapevine counterpart which is a bit more rustic. Plus they are super easy!!
Step 1: Start by adding your larger florals to the side of your hoop wreath. You will attach the stems by wrapping the floral wire tightly at the base of floral pick. I added my leaf-y picks first and was sure to leave a little space in between to add more florals, pumpkins, etc… in between them. Be sure to curve the stem around the hoop so it goes in the direction of the circle. Your wire cutters make it easy to trim florals of the larger stems and also to trim the wire if you need smaller pieces.
Step 2; Add in other florals in your color scheme. I found these peachy-orange mums at Target Dollar Spot and I loved the faded orange look to them. I overlapped the head of the floral over the leaf stems so they fill in the spaces.
Step 3: As I continue to layer different textures leaf and floral stems around the wreath I’m working my way towards filling the center area or gap that I’ve created. So I’ll now start to use some faux pumpkins, squash, artichoke or other fall inspired produce. If there isn’t a wire you can attach to the hoop then get your hot glue gun powered up and apply hot glue to attach some of these items.
Step 4: I cut up a garland that had berries and cute little pumpkins with straw and attached some floral wire at the base so that I could pop these in between some of the leaves and florals just to add more texture and interest to the hoop wreath. Here you can see how they look on our barn doors.
Finished Fall Hoop Wreath:
I tried two different methods to hanging these. The first is the little leather strap or small ribbon, underneath the window and then below here you can see I used a thicker ribbon and placed it over the door, hanging in front of the barn window. I’m not sure which I like better but I do love these modern looking wreaths.
I sure do hope you give these a try! They are so easy and really pretty for any interior or exterior door. You can even get creative with hanging them on other areas of your home too, in front of a mirror or window would be cool too. Let me know if you create them and I’d love to see!!
