Are you looking for a simple way to make your front door more inviting? I have the perfect solution and it’s something anyone can make. It’s a modern floral hoop wreath. This wreath can be used in any season plus it’s not a big bulky wreath. I have created a how-to tutorial so that you can create your own DIY modern floral hoop wreath.
If you are worried about creating your own wreath, I want you to know that I have never created my own flower wreath before. I was nervous that it would not look professional but I personally think that the wreath turned out amazing. And everyone that comes to my door or past it, comments on how great it looks. Plus they always ask where they can purchase one, they are always shocked that I made it!
DIY MODERN FLORAL HOOP WREATH
TIP: When purchasing the flowers, group them together to see if the colors go well together or give you the feeling you want.
To help you see exactly how to make a floral hoop wreath, I have created a video while I made my wreath. Use this video to help you make your own wreath. But I have also have the process explained below the video, you can find the steps with pictures!
STEP 1: cut the stems
After purchasing the materials it is time to prep the flowers and greenery so they are ready to be placed onto the ring.
Use wire cutters to cut the stems of each flower. You will be left with something like this.
STEP 2: add the greenery
Take the greenery and attach it onto the metal ring, you want to place the greener on only half of the hoop. So take half of the greenery and place on 1/4 of the hoop using the floral wire to secure it into place.
TIP: Try to hide the wire by placing it behind leaves.
After attaching half of the greenery, attach the other half onto another 1/4 of the hoop.
SIDE NOTE: You want the stem ends all facing toward each other. And you want them touching so that the ends will be covered by flowers.
STEP 3: Attach the flowers
Now it’s time to attach the flowers. Start with the biggest flower, the Peony, in this case, bend the stem so you can wrap the wire around it to attach it to the hoop. Place the flower in the middle of where the greenery stems come together and attach using the wire.
Next decide where you want the other flowers placed around the big flower, again bend the stem. Once you like the layout attach each flower using the wire.
TIP: Remember to try to hide the wire behind the flower.
Adjust anything that needs to be adjusted to give you the look you want. And now you have a completed floral ring wreath that you made yourself!
This whole process took me 30 minutes (that was the video time before adjusting the speed). The cost of all my materials was about $25. I did use a 50% coupon on everything at my local craft store.
And that’s the process of how to DIY a modern floral hoop wreath. I hope you take a change and try this tutorial because you will love the way it makes your front door look. Plus you will be surprised by the number of comments you will get!
