DIY Summer Wreaths for your front porch made with gold hoops, faux boxwood stems, eucalyptus, and summer flowers.
Last month, as I was preparing for my sister-in-law’s family baby shower, I realized that our front porch needed a little love.
I hadn’t refreshed it since last year and I wanted to start the baby shower on a pretty first impression.
Wreaths were high up on my agenda of things to do so I headed to the craft store to start looking for supplies.
I was hoping to create something light and airy that had a mixture of soft spring colors (for the baby shower) and the lightness of summer that could be used through both seasons.
Originally I thought my only option for a hoop wreath would be either a hula hoop (like I used for this extra-large DIY Succulent Hoop Wreath) or a wood hoop.
So I was super excited to find a gold floral hoop while wandering the aisles of the craft store.
I quickly grabbed two gold hoop wreath forms and a few bundles of flowers (for this wreath and for two other wreaths I created for the baby shower which you can see here).
I couldn’t wait to get home and start crafting all of these wreaths.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to attach the larger stems and flowers on such a thin hoop.
But then I remembered that I had some thin wire in my craft supplies and it worked perfectly.
I’m so happy with how they turned out and I will most definitely be making more wreaths with these gold floral hoops in the future!
1. First, cut off the stem from the faux flowers leaving ~1 inch of the stem attached to the flower.
2. Next, cut the wire into 6-8 inch pieces. You will need one piece of wire for each large stem.
3. Attach each flower or large greenery stem to the wreath using one piece of the cut wire.
You can do this by wrapping the wire first around the stem and then around the hoop wreath.
Tip: I recommend starting at the top on each side and working your way down for easy layering.
3. Use the hot glue gun and glue to attach any additional leaves or smaller stems to the wreath as desired.
4. Remove any excess glue strands.
5. Hang and enjoy!
