I made a DIY Embroidery Hoop Wreath with some inexpensive embroidery hoops and an flower arrangement that I found at a thrift store. Not only is it fun to make something yourself, you can save so much money when you find the items for the project for only a few dollars.
I have to stop myself from making some DIY projects because I realize that it is going to cost me more than if I purchased the items brand new. This DIY Embroidery Hoop Wreath was one of those projects. I wanted to make three wreaths for Spring for my kitchen windows so I went to the craft store and purchased the flowers and spent $28. That doesn’t sound like much for three wreaths but I thought to myself that I probably could find some flowers that would work at the thrift store.
The thrift store is only a few minutes from the craft store so I went straight there. I found this arrangement that had the succulents, hydrangeas, a few roses, and some greenery for $1.99. I immediately returned the items from the craft store. Like I said, $28 is not a lot of money but the way I look at it is that it is $26 that I can spend somewhere else.
I had the embroidery hoops at home just waiting for a project. I pulled out the pieces of flowers from the arrangement that I want to use and I threw the rest away.
I started wrapping the flowers onto the hoops with floral wire and I tried to make each side of the wreath identical.
I didn’t worry about being very neat because the center flowers will cover up the wire. After I had the greenery attached, I randomly attached the flowers in the center.
I wanted each wreath to be a little different so I changed the placement of the flowers slightly.
I think my DIY Embroidery Hoop Wreath from thrifted items look very pretty and perfect for Spring. I also like that I used items that no one wanted and made something beautiful for my home plus I only spent $2 besides using my own embroidery hoops for this project.
