I love the use of embroidery hoops as wreaths. I created a wreath wall using more than one hoop wreaths and vintage chippy windows. You will see I used fake eucalyptus stems for this educational, but you could use any wired stem you want and create an entire new search for your wreaths. Pine branches would be wonderful for winter and Christmas. Have fun with it, the options are endless!
For demonstration purposes I used this four inch hoop from Walmart. For my hoop wall assignment, I purchased various sizes. Remember you will get 2 hoop wreathes from every embroidery hoop after you loosen the screw and put off the inner hoop.
After the ring is taken apart, I cut my stems from the bigger stem or bush to a length that offers me the look I’m after.
GAMBAR3 After I mess around with the location of the stem, I begin to bend the wired stem around the hoop.
Once I get the stem how I like it, I determine where I need to tie it to the ring.
I start by way of tieing the jute to the ring with a regular knot. Tuck the tail of that knot within the course you are going to wrap the jute down the stem and hoop.
Wrap the jute down the stem and across the eucalyptus leaves.
Once I wrap the stem I use fabric glue to hold the jute collectively. When I do this I ensure I wrap it to the back if the hoop so the glue and cut piece of jute isn’t seen from the the front.
I wrap each stem in as a minimum spots to make certain it is secure. When you get it how you want it you’re finished and it is prepared for placing.
I used fishing line to grasp mine from antique chippy windows.
I stained those hoops before including my stems. You can use any wood stain to obtain this look. I used Ebony via Minwax.
