DIY Hula Hoop Wreath

Thank you to SheShe for inviting me to join y’all this week! I’ve wanted to make a hula hoop wreath for a while, and thought Valentine’s would be the perfect occasion for it! These are so simple to make with very little supplies. This one took me less than 15 minutes! Well, not counting dry time. 🙂 They make for a great door decoration as wreaths are traditionally intended, but can also jazz up any party space as well. I think this would be a fabulous focal point at a baby or bridal shower!

Supplies:
large embroidery hoop ( about 18″ )
greenery garland
green floral wire
lettered wall art
clear fishing line

gold spray paint (optional)

* All supplies can be found at Hobby Lobby or any craft store equivalent as well as our Shop The Post links below.

 I only used the inner circle of the embroidery hoop for this project then spray painted it gold for a little extra touch of glam. You can use an actual hula hoop here as well if you intend to hang the final product in a larger scale space.

Next, I took the greenery garland and laid it on top of the hoop adjusting until I was pleased with the placement. Then, cutting off the excess with scissors. Alternatively, doubling up your greenery will make for a fuller look if you prefer.

Once you’re happy with the placement of your greenery attach it to the hoop using green floral wire. The store was out of this, so I opted for gold jewelry wire instead. Also a great alternative if you’re in a pinch!

Lastly, scripted letters! This is a great time to make this project all your own. Hobby Lobby has several wall art options to choose from for any occasion. Thankful, Hello, Laundry, and even Hey Y’all for all the southern folks out there! Of course, I chose “Love” with Valentine’s Day in mind.

Place your letters in the center of the circle. It’s best to lay both your wreath and letters on a flat surface for this part. Then cut two pieces of clear fishing line at your desired height. Loop the line through the letters and tie a knot at the top to secure.

That’s it! I just hung the loop directly on my wreath hanger. You could also use a ribbon for a little extra detail. This can be customized for any season by adding floral accents or changing out the word in the center. For now it makes the perfect little touch of love at our home for Valentine’s Day!

Meet Ellen Cooley

Ellen Cooley, DIY contributor to SheShe Show, Creator Southern Sequence, Houston, TX.

I am Ellen, owner + creator of Southern Sequence. I am a professional organizer and self-proclaimed DIY enthusiast. I believe your home should be your happy place bringing you more joy and less chaos! Southern Sequence was created with this priority in mind, and it’s what I strive for in every project. My first goal of 2018 is to get our website up and running, but in the meantime you can find me on Instagram here. www.instagram.com/southernsequence 

 Born and raised in Arkansas, I now live in Houston, TX with my husband Andrew and our two pups Cooper and Rufus. Andrew and I were married on New Years Eve in 2016, and that day will forever be my favorite! We love to travel and spend time outdoors when the Houston weather allows. I prefer the mountains and cooler weather, but somehow this muggy city has managed to steal my heart.
 I am the quintessential night owl, prefer phone calls over texts, and a good glass of wine can always brighten my day. I love Jesus, and my faith in Him is the largest defining factor for my life and joy! I’m looking forward to creating more DIY tutorials for you, and I am so grateful Sheree has given me this opportunity to stretch my crafty brain.
