Create a simple wreath that you can change with the seasons, with this super easy project.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Wood Embroidery Hoop 10 in.
- Jute Cord 2 ply 80 g Natural
- Narrow Lace Trim
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Dried Flowers, Grasses, Twigs, Greenery, etc.
To begin, tie the end of the jute to one side of the hoop, about 3/4-inch above the middle.
Begin wrapping the jute around the middle of the ring, keeping the wraps right next to each other, rather than on top of one another.
On the back of the loop, add hot glue to help hold the wraps tight, and in place.
When your wraps are about 1 1/2-inches wide, tie off the jute, trim the end, and use hot glue to secure.
Attach one end of the lace to the back of the hoop using hot glue, pull around to the front, stretch across the jute wraps, and attach the other end to the opposite side of the back of the hoop with more hot glue.
Now weave sprigs of natural materials between the jute wraps to display them–try grasses, and dried flowers, or even sprigs of evergreens, and twigs, to create a beautiful, changeable, natural display.
To hang, simply slip the hoop onto a push pin, or nail.
