Embroidery Hoop Wreath

Happy Tuesday!

I needed to spice up my front door with a new summer wreath because the one I still had up was from Memorial Day/Fourth of July. I wanted something fun and bright!

 

Supplies I used:

1- 8 inch embroidery hoop

1- 12 inch embroidery hoop

fabric

rolling cork

hot glue/glue gun

Fiskars shears

felt for florals

I found this fabric at Michaels and I think it just screams summah!

I first traced out the size of fabric and rolled cork I would need for this project. The size you need is the space that will be between your embroidery hoops.

Once you have cork and fabric cut out, it’s time to glue the fabric to the cork.  I just used Mod Podge, but hot glued on the very outer edges.

The next step is to hot glue your hoops onto your fabric/cork. Trim the excess cork and fabric from around the edges.

Add any embellishments you want to your wreath. For mine I created two felt florals and also used a wool felt ball to finish the look.

Ta-da! I love my new wreath so much! Definitely the summer piece I was wanting for the front door!
