Winter Greenery Embroidery Hoop Wreath
Take a scroll through Pinterest lately, and you may notice that it seems like embroidery hoop wreaths are popping up everywhere. It’s no wonder why. They are simple craft projects, and they are a fun option to try instead of a full, traditional wreath.

Make as many as you like. I think that embroidery hoop wreaths look better displayed in groups of two or more. If you’re looking for more unique wreath ideas, check out these paper doily wreaths.

Supplies for this Craft
- embroidery hoops of various sizes
- red and white twine
- faux winter greenery
- thin brown twine
- scrap burlap / thin burlap ribbon
- wire cutter (optional: you’ll need it if your faux greenery is wired)
Tutorial: Embroidery Hoop Wreath
- Wrap the embroidery hoop with red and white twine. Wrap the twine all the way around the hoop, at about half-inch intervals. Secure the ends of the twine with a simple knot.
- Separate and trim the sprigs of the faux winter greenery. I used glittered boxwood, because I think it has more of a wintery feel. Feel free to use anything you like – even fresh greenery.
- Using plain brown twine, tie small pieces of greenery to the bottom-right edge of the hoop. Style and arrange as necessary.
- Make a burlap and twine bow for the wreath. Cut a thin strip of burlap (or use thin burlap ribbon) and tie in a bow. Be sure to cut the burlap straight between the threads to prevent fraying. Since you only need a small piece, you could just use the scraps from another burlap craft project. Thread a piece of red and white twine through the loop on the front of the bow. Then tie the twine in a bow as well.
- Secure the bow to the bottom of the embroidery hoop.
- Note: If you want to make multiple wreaths, change them up a bit. Put a bow at the top of one, and the bottom of the other. Try draping the greenery over the top of the hoop, instead of just the bottom or side. Then you can hang your wreaths at various intervals.
- Hang your wreath(s) with twine.
