Recently, I made a trip to Target and saw these cute artificial apples in the Dollar Spot. For just $3, I picked up a bag…not really knowing what I would do with them. Then I had an idea!

How about making an embroidery hoop wreath…simple, easy and so pretty! This was the first time I made this type of wreath, but it definitely won’t be the last.  This DIY apply embroidery hoop wreath was one of the quickest and easiest wreaths I have ever made.

Supplies needed for this wreath:

To make your wreath, follow these simple directions:

  1. Using your wire cutters, carefully cut pieces from the eucalyptus garland and boxwood.
  2. Place the artificial greenery on the wreath.  When you are happy with the placement, using floral wire, attach the eucalyptus to the embroidery hoop.
  3. Next add the boxwood pieces to the wreath and attach with floral wire.
  4. Using the Bowdabra and silver Bowdabra floral wire, make a bow with your ribbon. The Bowdabra Bow Maker is one of my favorite crafting tools. I have had mine for at least ten years and use it all the time!
  5. Tie your bow to the embroidery hoop with the silver Bowdabra floral wire.
  6. This is where I decided the wreath needed something else… Carefully using a hot glue gun, I added some delicate white flowers to the greenery.  Use your judgement and go with what looks good to you!
  7. Lastly, I carefully used hot glue to add the artificial apples to the wreath.

How long does it take to make this wreath?

After gathering all of my supplies, it took me about 20 minutes to make this DIY apple embroidery hoop wreath.

How do you hang your wreath?

One thing I didn’t think about when I made this wreath was that it is heavier on one side and didn’t hang straight.  A simple solution for this was using Command Strips.  I use these all around my home…like for these canvas prints and all types of seasonal decor. Simply adhere the Command Strip to the back of the embroidery hoop, in multiple places, and then adhere it to the wall or door.

Another idea would be to alter the design of the wreath. By placing the greenery and decorations at the bottom, the wreath would hang straight.

  1. Lynne, hoop wreaths are addicting, especially when the finished project looks as cute as yours. Thanks for the tips to use command tape for hanging in place, and using a small bit of white in the wreath. It really does help to highlight all the other pretty colors 🙂
    Hugs,
    RR

  2. This could not be cuter Lynn! I love the black and white with the bright red apples, they really pop against the eucalyptus leaves. I haven’t tried and embroidery hoop wreath and after seeing yours it is on my to do list! Fabulous Fall look!

  3. Lynne, that was a great Dollar Spot score for you! This wreath is so charming. I absolutely love the way the apples look against the bow and eucalyptus. Who knew there was such a thing as the bowdabra too! Off to look that one up! Glad to be hopping with you again!

  4. Beautiful wreath and perfect for fall. Target’s Dollar Spot is such a great place to find seasonal decor items at a great price. Hope school is going well for you!

  5. Darling wreath Lynne with the apples and greenery, but there’s just something about gingham bows that grabs my attention! Love it and pinning!

  6. Lynne – what a beautiful embroidery hoop wreath! I did one too, and it’s so fun to see the different ways you can do it – yours is so lovely! I ran into that hanging straight thing too and ended up finding a way that worked, but I like your idea better. I really have to try some of those Command strips! Thanks for the inspiration and the tips – it was great hopping with you!

  7. Lynne, your apple wreath is so pretty and perfect for fall. You know I have been all about apples this season! I really have to try an embroidery hoop wreath again sometime soon. I have a tendency to add too much to wreaths, and embroidery hoops call for more simple!! Happy Fall!

  8. Your wreath is so pretty, Lynne… and the apples with the gingham ribbon are perfect together! Pinned!

  9. Beautiful wreath, Lynne! You found the perfect use for your Dollar Spot apples! I’ve never tried the Bowdabra, but I have an EZ Bow Maker. It definitely helps with bow making. Your photos look great! Pinned 🙂

  10. Lynne, What a pretty wreath. Apples are perfect for the fall season. They work beautifully with the black and white check ribbon. This is a wreath that can be used all season.
