10 Beautiful DIY Hoop Wreath Ideas

Let’s face it: we’re all looking for things to do that don’t involve social hangouts, bar/restaurant hopping and going on summer vacations. While some of us have taken up new hobbies, like cooking or gardening, the rest of us have absolutely no clue how to spend our free time. Sunbathing, watching TV series after TV series, and planning our next major getaway can only be fun for so long. So, in light of the boredom most of us have, at some point or another, had to face and in the spirit of picking up a new hobby, we threw together a list of decorative door wreaths you could easily DIY from the comfort of your living room─AKA the place you’ve spent the last six months. Try them if you dare. 

Garden Hat Wreath

Remember that super cute, wide-brimmed sun hat you bought for your untaken summer vacation? You’re going to need it for this. Since your white sand beach Instagram photo op won’t be needing it, we figured you might as well put it to use for a wreath. We found a ridiculously simple (really, it’s ridiculous) DIY craft from lifestyle blog We Three Shanes, and could not help but to share. Here’s what you’ll need: 

Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun 
  • Garden hat 
  • Three sets of flowers (real or fake) 
  • Black permanent marker (optional) 

As with any craft involving a hot glue gun, find a heat-resistant space to work and place your heated gun. After you’ve established a work space, start by cutting the flowers─and leaves if you’d like─from the stems. Arrange the flowers around the hat in a way that is pleasing to you, making sure to only decorate the bottom half of the hat. Snap a quick picture of your final desired arrangement before you start gluing so that you’re able to reference your design while you work. After you’ve glued on your flowers, you can grab your permanent marker and scribble a welcoming phrase on the top half of the hat. “Hello,” “Welcome,” and “I’m so bored that I made this” are all acceptable choices.

Seed Packet Wreath

Not into gardening? That’s OK. You can easily trick your neighbors into thinking you are with this wreath. Taken from creative and DIY craft blog Worthing Court, this DIY wreath is way simpler than planting a garden, but gives off the impression that you’re a pro at it. Here’s what you’ll need:

Supplies: 

  • Hot glue gun
  • Grapevine wreath 
  • Green Spanish moss 
  • 20 flower/vegetable seed packets (found at a dollar store)
  • 1 pair of gardening gloves
  • 1 inch-wide ribbon of your choice

To start, glue the Spanish moss onto the grapevine wreath with your glue gun. Do this until you have completely covered the grapevine with the moss. Next, take your seed packets and arrange them around the wreath as you wish, covering the majority of the wreath’s surface area. We know what you’re thinking: Am I done gluing yet!? No, no you are not. After you’ve glued on the seed packets, grab your gardening gloves and glue them to the top of the wreath in a way that allows them to hang into the center opening. Per Suzy of Worthing Court, you might want to attach the gloves to one another before affixing them to the wreath. To finish it off, tie your ribbon into a large bow and glue at the top of your wreath─over top of the gloves and seed packets. Voila!

Wagon Wheel Wreath 

If you’re looking for something more rustic to match your home’s aesthetic, this wreath should be a winner. And, following suit, this non-traditional wreath craft by blog Lolly Jane is as simple as it is the perfect touch to your front door. Here’s what you’ll need: 

Supplies: 

  • Hot glue gun (optional) 
  • Wagon wheel─Duh.
  • Flowers & stems
  • Floral wire 
  • Wire cutter 

While it is entirely up to you how you wish to arrange the flowers, this DIY recommends placing all florals in one desired section of your wheel─taking up only one quarter of the wheel, for example. The instructions for this craft are relatively simple─all you need to do is place your flowers and stems where you’d like, and then secure them to the wheel with either floral wire or hot glue. If you’re planning on using the floral wire, simply wrap the it around the flowers and twist the ends together to secure each flower into place.

Steel Hoop Ring Wreath

Take everything you think you know about wreaths (let’s be real, you probably don’t know much about them), and throw it out the window. This modern take on a door wreath is better than any flower-adorned, easter-egg decorated, twig-woven wreath you’ve ever seen. You can thank interior junkie and DIY craft master Rebecca from lifestyle blog Hello Central Avenue for this one. Here’s what you’ll need: 

Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Steel hoop ring 
  • Three types of greenery (at least)
  • Flowers 
  • Floral wire (twine and zip ties also acceptable) 
  • Wire cutters
  • Ribbon 

Start off by cutting the greenery and flowers you’d like to use with the wire cutters. Affix your greenery and stems to the ring with floral wire, hot glue, twine or zip ties. There is really no method to this, so however you can attach the decor is acceptable. Feel free to use floral wire to secure the decor and hot glue to reinforce it to the ring. Though you can decorate how you wish, this DIY craft shows the greenery covering a third of the ring. After you’ve attached your greenery, it’s time to add your flowers. Any flower will be perfect for this, however this DIY flaunts white and pink peonies. Even if you don’t use this to decorate your front door, we highly recommend using it as some form of decoration somewhere in your home. Seriously─how unique is this??

Tropical Wreath

While we’re not at all thrilled about our cancelled summer vacations this year, we can kind of rectify all sad feelings with this tropical wreath. This DIY wreath, made by Kim of home and lifestyle blog Made in a Day, is super simple and extremely decorative. There’s only one catch: you absolutely must be sipping on something fruity and possibly alcoholic while crafting this. We don’t make the rules─we just enforce them! Here’s what you’ll need:

Supplies: 

  • Hot glue gun 
  • Foam wreath 
  • Floral stems 
    • Recommended: a faux eucalyptus stem, 2 blush peony stems, 2 pink peony accent picks, 1 palm bush, 1 fern stem, and 1 small fern accents pick
  • Acrylic paint 
    • Recommended: navy blue 
  • Paint brush 
  • Floral wire
  • Metal floral pins 
  • Durable pliers 

Start by painting the foam wreath whichever color you choose. While waiting for the paint to dry completely, trim your stems to about 1 inch from the base of the flower. The base of your wreath should comprise palm and eucalyptus stems, but after this you are free to layer on whichever tropical stem-flower combinations you wish. Face your two (or more) palms and eucalyptus stems inward toward one another and use floral wire and hot glue to secure them accordingly. You can also use floral pins to secure the palm-eucalyptus base onto the wreath. Continue to decorate with flowers of your choice by pushing each stem into the foam (to make a hole) and then re-inserting them with hot glue. You can then proceed by inserting the small fern picks between flowers and large fern stems on the sides of the flowers. Looking at this almost makes you feel like you’re on the white sand beach where you belong, no??

There’s no decoration that screams farmhouse more than this vintage sieve wreath featured on vintage-inspired blog Adirondack Girl @ Heart.

Floral Wreath 

Florals? For a wreath? Groundbreaking. Floral wreaths are, perhaps, the most desired kind, and rightfully so. Whether your floral wreath comprises freshly picked blooms in the warmer months or faux bouquets in the colder ones, floral wreaths are always in season. This DIY gem, also conceived by Lolly Jane, is simply a must-create, especially if you’re due for a new wreath (aren’t we all?). Here’s what you’ll need: 

Supplies:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Greenery wreath 
    • Substitute: Metal ring with greenery attached 
  • Faux (or real) floral picks of your choice
  • Metal cutting snips 

If you’re unable to locate a pre-made greenery-filled wreath, start off by attaching your greenery to your metal ring with hot glue. Then, affix a variety of floral picks to the greenery and secure each piece with hot glue. Tuck the flowers into the greenery to make the arrangement appear well-combined. Feel free to decorate the entirety of the wreath body with flowers. The more, the better.

Twig & Peony Wreath

When it comes to wreaths, twigs and peonies are always a good idea. And this twig-meets-peony wreath, hand-crafted and conceptualized by Making The World Cuter blog, is no exception. Here’s what you’ll need: 

Supplies: 

  • Twig wreath─Duh.
  • Peonies─Major duh.
  • Ribbon 
  • Wire snips
  • Spray paint (optional)

If you are unable to find a pre-painted twig wreath, feel free to spray paint one yourself. This DIY hoop wreath recommends a white-washed twig wreath, but any color should do the trick. After you’ve spray painted your wreath to the desired color and it has fully dried, use your wire snips to cut the stems of your peonies to approximately 4 inches from the bottom of the bloom. And, as recommended by the blog, be sure to save some of the leaves for added decoration. Then, insert the stems of your peonies into the breaks in the twigs. It’s recommended that the flowers sit pretty at the bottom part of your wreath, rather than all around. But again, feel free to make this your own─you can never have too many peonies! To finish it off, tie a burlap-style ribbon and affix it near your peonies.

Tulip Wreath 

This tulip-embellished wreath by Kylie of The How To Mom is probably best suited for the spring, when the flower blooms in abundance. But if you’re in the mood for some tulip-inspired decor, faux tulips can easily make this piece a year-round ornament. In fact, Kylie seems to think faux tulips are the only way to go. If you’re interested in recreating this lovely piece, here’s what you’ll need:

Supplies: 

  • Hot glue gun (or floral pins)
  • Approximately 10 bunches of silk mini tulips
  • Foam wreath 
  • Approximately 7 yards of satin ribbon (ideally in a color that matches your tulips) 

To start, cut the large stems from each bush of tulips. Keeping the leaves attached is completely optional. Then, using either hot glue or floral pins, secure your satin ribbon to the foam. Then, begin tucking the tulips into the ribbon as you continue to wrap it around the foam, moving around the wreath. Feel free to use the hot glue or floral pins to secure the ribbon and flowers as you wrap. Do your best to wrap tightly around the stems and cover the entirety of the foam. Once you’ve successfully wrapped the foam, secure the ribbon in the back so that it can’t unravel.
