We have been in our new house for four months already, and our door has been bare! I missed the boat for a cute Easter wreath, but actually, was okay with that, because the older I get, the more I just want to simplify! This wreath would work for spring, summer and even fall with the browns in it, rather than having multiple wreaths for all the holidays and seasons, I am in love with this enough to hang it most of the year round.
I have seen these gold hoop wreaths all over pinterest and for crazy prices on Etsy, but nowhere in stores, so I knew if I wanted one, I’d have to learn how to make one. They look complex, but they couldn’t be easier! This wreath took me 30 minutes, and cost just $20!
Here’s what you’ll need to make one:
A 10 or 12″ gold hoop
2 stems greenery (like lambs ear)
2 stems gold leafy flowers
2 large pink peonies
6 small white and brown Ranunculus flowers
Hot glue gun + sticks
I found all of the supplies at Jo-Anns, except the hoop wreath which I ordered on Amazon Prime.
Here’s how to make it:
First, attach the greenery, by holding it against the hoop where you want it, and wrapping the floral wire around it to hold it in place. Keep the wrapping to the spots you know you will cover later with the flowers. The ends of the stems should meet in the center where the big flowers are going to be.
Next, wrap the gold stems around the green ones.
Pull off the flowers from the stems. Hot glue the large flowers in the center. And the smaller flowers around them.
Then hang on your front door. Preferably with a cute wreath hanger, and not a tacky plastic hook, which is my quick, temporary solution. Actually, it’s not a bad one, because I have another hook beneath the pink flowers keeping it in place so the crazy wind around here won’t blow it away!
I hope you guys love your new creation!
