Hi Y’all! I have been getting questions about my floral hoop wall decor, so I figured it would be a good time to share how I made these! They were pretty simple to make, and I feel like it is a fun and inexpensive way to dress up any space, especially an awkward wall!
initially, I bought 3 different size hoops (small, medium, and large), but I ended up only using the medium and large for my display! I also bought WAY more hoops than I needed, but just returned what I didn’t use.
Here are similar items to what I did use. I honestly recommend going into Hobby Lobby or Michael’s and picking out your florals and greenery in person!
- 5 large 18″ gold embroidery hoops
- 2 medium 14″ gold embroidery hoops
- 8 faux florals
- 2-3 bundles of eucalyptus
- floral Snips
- hot glue gun
- nails, screws, or monkey hooks for hanging
- fishing line can be used to help secure pieces as needed
Once you have all of your supplies, you want to go ahead and heat up your glue gun! While it is heating, you can go ahead and start cutting the stems off your flowers. You want to try and cut as close as you can to the bloom to make it easier to glue onto the hoop. For the greenery you may need to trim the ends up or cut shorter depending on how long you want them. I found that cutting the eucalyptus about 8 inches worked well, but it depends on your hoop size! Just play with it!
I did a couple different style hoops. I used two sizes and the large hoop in the middle had 2 flowers and more eucalyptus to create an anchor in the center of the wall. This was the first floral hoop I created. It looked like this:
Once you cut your pieces of eucalyptus, you will attach them to the flower. I like to attach them at an angle like so…
Use a good amount of hot glue and really make sure it is all secure. Once the glue has dried, grab your hoop. Place your floral down with the back facing up. put the hoop on top and start gluing it down. Don’t be shy with the glue!! Give it a couple minutes to dry! See picture below for placement details!
Keep repeating this process until all your floral hoops are complete. I like to hang them up as I make them to get a feel for what looks good. Here are a few progress pictures I had.
Hanging the hoops: hanging the floral hoops was a little tricky. I used a little bit of everything. I screwed some of the hoops to the wall, some were nailed, and a couple using monkey hooks. I did my best to hide the screw or nail behind the florals and greenery, but some of them are still visible, and it is fine!
Overall, this was a fun project to complete. It took me a couple hours, and I love the way it turned out. You can make it your own and get creative with the florals and greenery. Add more hoops or create a smaller version of the one I did. You can even just make one wreath for door decor! Regardless of what you do, I hope this post was helpful and gave you some inspiration for your next DIY home project!
