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!

Supplies:

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!

For now I have it set in our open shelves built ins in the living room.  But, I have a feeling it may make its way over to the farmhouse shelves in our dining room soon.

    Your embroidery hoop wreath looks great in the frame! I will have to look for a good frame when I go to the thrift store next time so I can do a similar project.

    Love the wreath! So cute!

    I’m sorry to hear about the PPD. I had it with my daughter and it definitely sucked the creativity out of me. I like to say that I had it for 6 years. 😉 Haha. If you ever need someone to talk to, send me a message. PPD is no joke. <3

      Thanks so much Emy! It’s comforting in a weird way to know other people went through PPD, to hear their stories, to cry and feel together. What a crazy but wonderfully beautiful experience mothering is!
