Embroidery Hoop & Ribbon Christmas Wreath
Ho, Ho, Ho and Merry Christmas! I know many of you are busy decorating for the season so I’ve got an easy DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Wreath project to share with you. This wreath features some of the beautiful metallic and lame ribbons available from The Ribbon Roll but you could use just about any of their ribbons to customize the look for your home.
Once you’ve got your wreath made, hang it over your mantel, on your front door and even consider making a few to give as gifts—they’re that easy to make.
Here’s are the supplies you’ll need…
• Large Embroidery Hoop
• Faux Evergreen Pics
• Merry Christmas Wood Die-Cut
• Acrylic Craft Paint
• Foam Paint Brush
• Floral Wire
• Hot Glue Gun and Glue
• Small Ornaments (optional)
STEP 1: Cut your ribbon into lengths 2” longer than the widest point of the embroidery hoop. The number of ribbon pieces you’ll need will depend on the size of your embroidery hoop. You’ll want to cut enough ribbon strips to fill the embroidery hoop.
STEP 2: Open your embroidery hoop and separate the two pieces.
STEP 3: Lay the ribbon pieces over the inside (smaller) hoop, criss-crossing them in a woven pattern.
STEP 4: Put the larger hoop over the smaller hoop and tighten the hoop down. If you need to adjust the ribbon position, loosen the hoop a little, move the ribbon around and tighten the hoop. Once the ribbon is in place and secure, trim away the excess ribbon around the hoop.
STEP 5: Paint your Merry Christmas die-cut using your craft paint.
STEP 6: Attache the die cut piece in the center of the hoop, on top of the ribbon using your hot glue gun.
STEP 7: Add the glitter leaves into the greenery in any pattern you like. I placed mine near the top of the wreath.
STEP 8: (optional) Embellish the wreath with small ornaments (attach them using your hot glue gun).
That’s all there is too it. Happy ribbon crafting friends!
