This Lavender Embroidery Hoop Wreath is simple to create & is a beautiful way to celebrate spring & summer in your home year after year.
Now that all of the winter decor is finally put away I have decided it is time to decorate our home for spring and summer. And since it took me until April to take down the last winter wreath, I decided I needed to create a spring wreath to hang in its place.
I had originally planned to create a different embroidery hoop wreath design, but when I found the plant I was looking for at our local nursery I gasped at the price & immediately left. So back to the drawing board I went… I then remembered all of the cherry blossom creations I created a couple years back. Most of them disappeared during our move back to Tennesee, so off to Hobby Lobby I went for some more cherry blossom branches.
But when I arrived at Hobby Lobby I became completely distracted by the lavender branches & a beautiful boxwood garland that was 50% off. Without thinking I grabbed 5 individual lavender branches & the garland & I checked out. When the 5 individual lavender branches rang up for $21 & some change I freaked out. What had I just done?
They have bushes of lavender (that look more like a bouquet) for a way cheaper price than all 5 branches. As I walked out to my car I debated whether or not I should walk right back in there to return them & buy the others. I didn’t want to look crazy but spending that much money when I didn’t need to felt just as crazy.
So I put my garland in the car & marched (more like sheepishly walked) back up to the same cashier to return the branches I just bought. After I explained myself she completely agreed. I then eagerly walked off to find the lavender bush & about a minute later I returned to the same cashier. And instead of paying $21+ I only spent $8 & some change for the same amount of lavender with Hobby Lobby’s 40% off coupon on my phone!
Oh & I should note that I had also picked up my wooden embroidery hoops from Hobby Lobby earlier that week.
I love that place!
Lavender Bush or Stems
Leaf Garland or Stems
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
First, cut off the branches from the bush &/or garland.
Next, decide how you want to arrange them & hot glue them onto your embroidery hoop.
Then you can either hang them on your a door, above your fireplace, or attach them to a branch with some string & hang it on your wall.
Crazy easy, but I love how it looks!
How do you plan to decorate your Embroidery Hoop Wreath?
