The winter holiday season is the perfect time to infuse our homes with warmth and natural beauty, and what better way to do it than with a stunning woodland wreath? Incorporating elements like frosted beaded foliage and a sweet woodland fairy house, brings the charm of the outdoors right to your front door.

Not only does it make for a striking seasonal decoration, but it also adds a touch of rustic elegance that is hard to resist.

I love embroidery hoop wreaths and I knew I could incorporate the wood kind for an added rustic look. I found this huge quilting embroidery hoop, and it did the trick to make this wreath so special.

To make your creation even more whimsical, you could incorporate some fairy lights among the greenery. When illuminated at night, they will give off a soft glow that adds an extra touch of magic to your woodland door wreath.

By incorporating earthy materials and experimenting with colors and textures, you can create a truly captivating decoration that embodies both coziness and elegance.

Get creative this year and bring the enchantment of the winter forest right to your doorstep! Here’s how to make it!

One of the first things you do when you buy silk foliage or picks is to take them apart with pliers, this way you can work with each stem separately.

I cut my large foliage bush into three sections. Next layout how you are going to arrange the arrangement. Play 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, pull the bottom base off of 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 easily 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 seemed much easier for this project.

Loop burlap ribbon over the top and hang! It looks really interesting without the ribbon as well.

    Hi Kim! Could you tell me which method you use to finish the back of hoop projects?

    1. I did not cover the back of the wreath with anything. You could cover glue or imperfections with felt if needed.

  2. Loved this; am always looking for ways to make wreathes out of something that’s not straw or greenery. Add wooden emb. hoops to my-look-for-at-yard-sales list!

    1. Thank you Kathy, I do the same thing! I love using unconventional things for wreaths.

    I really love this idea, so pretty and appropriate for the season and so simple, not overdone. I’ve gotten so I love to see the really fluffy full wreaths but can’t handle them in my own house or on door. Just one of those things about old age, quirks? We have a small house and too much is too much in it especially when doors/windows/shades closed up at night. Maybe I have bit of claustrophobia? This is such a cute idea, easy to accomplish and not expensive for too many supplies. So glad you shared this with us.
    I have several different sized hoops so that’s already there, will find some sparkly picks when holiday decorations come out, just need the little house. Where did you find your little woodland house? love it and how it’s styled.
    Happy weekend and holidays.

    I really like this. I like big fluffy wreathes but sometimes they are just “too much,” you know? This is simple and subtle in all the right ways.
