DIY Succulent Hoop Wreaths

I had the same wreath on our door for a few years and decided it was time for an update. I already had two quilting hoops leftover from when I made THIS chandelier, so I deemed those the perfect pieces to use in my new creation.

I headed to Hobby Lobby and decided I wanted to use succulents as the main focus for the wreaths, so I laid down three quilting hoops (I like groups of three best) and started laying out which succulents I liked for each wreath.

I had my two-year-old with me, so I didn’t get much time to really decide what I liked, so I just grabbed a bunch and decided I would figure it all out at home.

Below is what I used and how I did it!

Materials: 

-Three quilting hoops in sizes of your liking

-A variety of succulents and/or flowers ( I found mine at Hobby Lobby)

-A hot glue gun

-Twine (I used bakers twine)

-Command Hooks

Tip: I found these little bundles of succulents near the individual succulents and Hobby Lobby took 50% off of these during their floral sale.

Directions:

  1. Decide which larger succulent you would like to be the centerpiece, and separate it from the stem. Then, open the hoop and tighten the end of the stem in the hoop so it sits securely. Then, start hot-gluing your other succulents (if needed, remove stem to flatten) around the big one, and if any of them feel like they aren’t secure enough, tie a piece of twine or floral wire around it. Keep working up and down the wreath until you are satisfied with the way it looks.

2. Tie a piece of twine around the top of the wreaths for hanging. Then, decide about where you would like the wreaths to hang and drape the other end of the twine over the top of the door and onto the other side, and secure them using Command hooks. And that is it!

  1. These are gorgeous, you’re so creative! I wish I was crafty!

  2. The wreaths turned out fabulous! I love how you used the command hooks to attach it to the door from the inside. I really want to get better at adding some decoration to our door. I did at Christmas time, but haven’t figured out what to put up since then. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. These are so simple and cute! Pre-made wreaths can be so expensive, so these are such a great alternative!

  4. Oh wow, you did a great job! I love the three different sizes. Super cute for the summer time.

  5. These are so cute. Fake succulents may be easier for me to keep alive…

  6. These are so simple and classy! I like how they take over the whole window of the door, but not actually. They’re beautifully subtle. Going on my list of inspiration!
