I found some gold hoops at the thrift store the other day and just knew that I could make something with them. They were just too cute to pass up. And I don’t know about you, but when I see something that I think that I can use, I buy it all…even though I probably would have been fine just buying a few. I hate it when I don’t buy something and then regret it later and think, I should have bought all of them. This is not a good habit, I know. Well, at least they were only .50 a piece. I decided that I wanted to make them into little Christmas wreaths. (embroidery hoops would work for this project as well) This is such a quick, easy, and budget friendly project. Can it get any better than that? I found these green glittery evergreen stems at Michaels and I didn’t even use one whole stem for 3 of these wreaths. These types of stems will go a long way for these wreaths. (See room source list at the end of this post)
I started by pulling off little pieces of these stems and laying them in the places that I wanted, to get an idea of how it would look after tying them in place.
I tied 1 to 2 pieces at a time to the ring with pieces of fishing line so that it would not show. Fishing line is great because it is mostly invisible when using it for projects such as these.
After I had all of the pieces tied to the ring where I desired, I used hot glue to glue the pieces to the ring and glue some to other pieces so that it would hold without sliding off of the ring. I also hot glued these small jingle bells to the bottom middle. This helps to hide the little stems of the evergreen pieces and adds some bling. I love them.
I used this burlap twine to make little hangers for my wreaths. I measured out 6 strands to my desired length and then tied a hoop knot at the top. I braided the rest of the twine, using 2 pieces at a time. When I got to the end, I just tied the other side of the twine to the hoop.
I am so in love with these and I don’t think I’ll have a problem using all of the hoops that I found at the store. I used little tack nails to hang them to my diy shelves. I could have also just tucked the ends under these books to hold them as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I would love for you to tag me on IG if you make some cute wreaths of your own. There are so many ways that these can be made and I would love to see all of your creative ways!
