This fall embroidery hoop wreath is sure to help you feel festive this fall!
Few door decorations are as festive as a well done wreath. They are beautiful, last a long time and can always be spruced up again when they do eventually start to droop. All you need is a glue gun and some beautiful, faux, autumn foliage.
I love turning simple thrift store finds into seasonal home decor. I think it is the absolute best place to find basic everyday items to turn into something new and unique. Today it’s a fun oval wooden embroidery hoop that I picked up for $.99 and turned into a base for a festive fall wreath. If you don’t find a wooden embroidery hoop at your local thrift store don’t worry, use a coupon for your favorite craft store and you can still pick one up for just a couple dollars.
This wreath is quick to put together once your glue gun heats up and is totally budget friendly with dollar store or thrift store finds. Have fun with it! Get creative! You’ll end up with something beautiful for Fall.
This is the hoop I used (on amazon) if you can’t find it locally. This is an affiliate link. It will not cost you extra to purchase it through this link.

FALL EMBROIDERY HOOP WREATH
Fall Embroidery Hoop Wreath
- 1 wooden embroidery hoop (see link above to purchase on amazon)
- silk flowers (in autumn colors)
- Fall berries
- Hot glue gun
- 3 glue sticks
- If using an oval embroidery hoop decide if you want to hang it vertically or horizontally.
- I found flowers, stems of berries, and even pretty feathers at Dollar Tree. You want to have one larger flower, stems with smaller flowers, and at least one or two different textures like the berries.
- Play around a bit first with your flowers and other items and get an idea for how you would like your arrangement to look.
- Wrap the stem of one flower around the embroidery hoop and glue it into place. Allow the hot glue to harden completely. You will use this stem to help anchor the other stems that you will be using.
- Pull the flowers off all the remaining flower stems.
- Start tucking the longer pieces like berry stems and feathers at the top of where you would like your arrangement to end on either side, run the ends through the stem wrapped around hoop. Place some just to the inside of the hoop and some just on the outside to create a fuller-looking grouping.
- Begin filling in the space with flower tops, gluing securely in place, work outward from the center of your flower arrangement. Tuck in a few pieces of greenery to finish filling in.
- Your wreath is one of a kind and is perfect for hanging indoors or out to welcome your guests.
