DIY Floral Embroidery Wreath

I am not a wreath designer, definitely not a floral expert by any means. The hardest part of this DIY was not buying all the things, to make ten more of these beauties. Let’s get started, I am excited to show you how easy it was to make this hoop wreath.

Step 1: Cut and Attach Your Greenery

Step 1

The first thing I did was cut down all the florals and greens using the wire cutters. I left the stems a little longer on the base layer, since they were the main piece of greenery. I wanted those to wrap around the inner ring of the wreath. As far as the flowers I snipped those off pretty much at the head of the flowers, only leaving about an inch or two on the stem. I found this makes it much easier to attach to the wreath. You can use floral tape, wire, zip ties, or even twine to attach them to the wreath form.

I found four different pieces of greenery that I wanted to use for this wreath. Our goal was to have a full and plump wreath. I laid the first piece of greenery on each side. Once you have the greenery where you want it, you can use the floral wire to secure it.

Step 2: Layer and Glue Your Greenery

After the greenery has been attached with the wire you want to add some hot glue just to add that extra security that it will stay in place.

Step #3: Lay Out Your Florals

This is my favorite part! You can now add in your florals. It’s always a good idea to have a focal point, like one large statement flower, I chose the Yellow Hydrangea Stem. To balance the wreath, we added a smaller bush on both sides on the wreath. I picked the Yellow Dahlia Bush.

Step 5: Fill In Your Wreath

This is what I call this the “fluff” stage of the project. You can use left over pieces of greenery, florals, or fun decor. We are doing a lemon theme this year so I added in a few lemon picks to level out the wreath. You just want the wreath to look full, and you want to make sure you hide all the floral wire.

Step #6: Hang Your Wreath
