DIY HOOP WREATH
Note from Laurie ~ I absolutely LOVE this wreath and brought the supplies home to make one myself (since the wreath made up wouldn't fit in my suitcase on the flight home!) I'm so thankful for such a sweet group of ladies to work with every day, and absolutely adore this cute craft we made together!
Laurie and I thought it would be so fun for our whole PPP team to do a group craft when we were recently all together in Nashville. (This was the very first time for some of us to meet and we had soooo much fun, ate waaaay too much chocolate and stayed up much toooo late!)
Anyway, we needed something that could be made quickly and with minimal supplies. 🙂 So, when Laurie mentioned she had been wanting to make a DIY Hoop Wreath, I thought that would be the perfect project for our sweet PPP team.💗

Here's how to make this DIY Hoop Wreath:
DIY Hoop Wreath Supplies:
- 14 or 19 inch steel ring (or you could use a small hula hoop from the Dollar Tree)
- Gold spray paint (or any color you like)
- Floral wire or sticks
- Greenery (we used dried silver dollar eucalyptus, artificial eucalyptus, lavender bush and some airy fern type greenery)
- Wooden or chipboard word
- Fishing line
- Scissors and wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Spray paint your ring and wording in any color you choose. We used gold for the hoop and glitter gold for the words.
- Cut your greenery into desired lengths and lay on your wreath (moving them around until you get the look you want). We all kind of went for the asymmetrical look with our wreaths.
- Next cut some floral wire or sticks into about 3 or 4 inch pieces.
- Start wiring your greenery onto your ring, wiring as needed every few inches. Tip: wire your greenery on one side and then go ahead and find your ending spot and wire your greenery where the greenery (not stems) are facing out on the other side. Continue until you meet in the middle. Depending on which type of greenery you use, you may need to clip a few pieces and hot glue them to cover your stems and wire for a more finished look.
- Decide how far down you want your word to hang and cut the fishing line to the desired length. Attach your word to the hoop by tying on the fishing line using small knots. Cut away excess fishing line after you tie your knots.
- Finally, add a piece of ribbon to use for hanging your wreath. I attached mine to my back door using a command hook at the very top of the door and letting my wreath hang from it.
As you can see, everyone's wreaths are a bit different. This DIY Hoop Wreath really has endless possibilities to customize to your personal taste.🌺
We all ADORE how Shannon's turned out! I mean seriously, that is one cute wreath and even cuter kiddo! Shannon surprised her daughter Faith with her own personalized “faith” wreath and she was thrilled! 😍
This ended up being a really great group project! I feel so very grateful to be a part of such a sweet bunch! We figured our total cost per wreath was about $7 and that made our penny pinching hearts happy! 🙂
Jamie decided to put a different spin on hers with a St. Patrick's Day theme. How cute is that?? I sent her home with another wooden word so she can change it out after the holiday. Such a fun idea!
I just LOVE how all the girls on the PPP team put their own unique style on their wreath. We had so much fun making this DIY Hoop Wreath!
