I love all the rustic holiday home decor trending this year, how about you? I found some great sparkly foliage this week at Michaels and I wanted to make a woodland scene wreath for my holiday decor. I love embroidery hoop wreaths and I knew I could incorporate the wood for an added rustic look. I found this huge quilting embroidery hoop, and it did the trick to make this wreath special. Here’s how to do it!
Winter Holiday Woodland Wreath
- Wood Quilt Hoop 18 Inch -3/4 Inch Depth
- Darice Quilting Hoops, 14-Inch
- Bushy foliage and a few sparkly picks
- Faux woodland house
- Burlap Ribbon
- Hot glue and gun
One of the first things you do when you buy silk foliage and picks is to take them apart with pliers, this way you can work with each stem separately. I cut my large foliage bush in 3 sections. Next I lay out how I am going to arrange the arrangement, playing around with different scenarios. Then go back and attach the picks and foliage.
Hot glue the two hoops together. I glued the smaller hoop slightly to the left inside the larger hoop. This will help stabilize the house and embellishments.
Glue and layer the three bushes spread out across the left side and bottom of the hoops.
To make the house sturdy on the arrangement, I pulled the bottom base off of the the house. Cut a small section out of the left side, insert it over the inner hoop. Hot glue the house to the inner hoop.
Add the small picks to the wreath. To make the stems sturdy add hot glue to the stems as you arrange. Make sure they are where you want them, they do not come off easy once they have been glued. You can use plant wire to tie down the picks and foliage if you wish. In my opinion hot glue on the hoops seems much easier for this project.
Loop burlap ribbon over the top and hang! It looks really interesting without the ribbon as well.
I love it and it looks so pretty in my dining room for the holidays. I hope you like it! Happy Holidays!
