DIY Of The Week: Summer Hoop Wreath
Looking for a quick project that packs a decorative punch? Look no further than this summery wreath with Monstera leaves!
You will need:
- 16″ and 12″ Wreath Rings, or two wreath rings of different sizes.
- Glue gun
- White acrylic paint
- Various artificial plants and flowers (succulents, monstera plants, etc)
- Paper Plate
Paint the hoops with white satin paint and set aside to dry. TIP: Use a hair dryer to speed up the dry time of the paint.
Plan your arrangement on the larger hoop. Position two of the monstera leaves on the hoop, leaving an area for the focal point you will establish with the succulents. Position fern leaves around the monstera leaves. Once you like the layout, use hot glue to hold the leaves to the hoop.
Cut the stems off your plants, but leave a 1″ nub for gluing. Cluster the succulents together to make a focal point between the monstera leaves. Hot glue the succulents to the hoop.
Cut a piece of ribbon that is about 24″ long.
Lay the smaller hoop inside the larger hoop. Fold the ribbon in half and position it under the two hoops. Take the two tails and pull them through the hoop, creating a lark’s head knot. This will keep the hoops together. Next, tie a double knot on the top section of the ribbon, making a loop for the hanger.
