Oversized Hoop Wreath

This past summer we upgraded to new furniture in our living room and some fresh new decorations were needed to match!  We went with grey as our main color with blush and mint accents.  I had so much fun creating the new look, it feels like an actual “grown up” room for the first time!

We have a large empty wall space above our entertainment center that needed an accent decoration.  I wanted something large but still simple and sweet.  I decided to put together an oversized hoop wreath and put together a quick tutorial for you as it is SO easy and really adds to any room!

The supplies you will need are:

-Oversized hoop:  I used an 18″ Quilt Hoop that I picked up at Joann using a 40% off coupon

-Floral wire

-Artificial Greenery and Flowers:  I love the selection at Hobby Lobby (AND they go on sale 50% off every other week!)

-Glue Gun

**I did decide to spray paint my hoop light pink right before starting it because the wood did not match our living room decor.**

I started by pulling my flowers off of the stems and laying them out loosely on the hoop to get an idea of what it would look like.  After that, just add the greenery on first.  I wanted mine to cover only half the hoop. Use pieces of your floral wire to secure the greenery to the hoop.

Once your greenery is secured use more floral wire to secure your flowers on.  You can use hot glue as well in any areas that need extra hold.

Once finished you can hang just on the actual hoop or you can add rope, twine, etc to hang it from.  It looks perfect centered over our entertainment center and is exactly the oversized but simple statement piece we were aiming for!  And, even better, you can easily swap it out seasonally!
