I jumped on the bandwagon and made my own minimalistic DIY embroidery hoop wreath in just a few minutes!
It’s the second Wednesday of the month which means it’s time for another Inspire My Creativity Link Party!
This month’s theme was embroidery hoops. I wanted to be super unique and come up with something never done before. Yeah, that didn’t happen. Sometimes I think the PPD sucked the creativity out of my brain!
So, I decided to jump on the bandwagon of making an embroidery hoop wreath!
I had already made this wreath for our front door so I didn’t really need to make another big wreath.
Last year, I made a simple greenery wreath that paired perfectly with an old frame. It’s been sitting on our DIY farmhouse shelves for quite some time now.
I decided to sorta combine those two wreaths into one. Use the minimalistic feel of the gold hoop wreath combined with an old frame like the greenery wreath!

- Embroidery hoop
- Blue Ribbon
- Note: I really wanted to use velvet ribbon but I couldn’t find it at Joann and the kids wouldn’t cooperate for me to stop at Michaels. I think velvet would look even better!
- Glue gun
- Old frame
I started by glueing the edge of the ribbon to the embroidery hoop.
Then, I wrapped the ribbon around the entire embroidery hoop twice and glued the edge to the hoop.
With the ribbon on, I picked off some flowers and lamb’s ear I wanted to use. You see some blue berries in the photos above that I was going to use, then decided against it!
I glued the lamb’s ear pieces on first slightly off-centered to the right. This hoop is small so you barely need any flowers at all.
Last, I glued the two mini roses on top of the lamb’s ear!
It’s so little and cute!
I cut a piece of the same blue ribbon into a much thinner strip and tied to it to an old frame my mom picked up for me at a yard sale a few years ago.
I’m still kinda kicking myself for not getting the velvet ribbon because I think that would look better? Prettier? Nicer? Not sure of what word I’m looking for.
I do love how it’s not complicated, easy to make, small, and looks great paired with the gold frame!
I think my mom said this frame was 50 cents at a yard sale!
Now, let’s see what everyone else made with embroidery hoops this month!
Remember to stop back next month for a new theme!
Wishing you a joyful day!
