I say this every year, and I'm sure everyone else does also, but where did this year go?! Can you believe Christmas is only two months away? I feel like July was yesterday. As much as I miss and love Summer, I do love the coziness and warmth that Christmas time brings. 

I've been using the same Christmas wreaths in my house for a couple of years now, so I was excited to partner with Hobby Lobby to create a new one. I have been loving the trend I've been seeing all over Instagram lately using embroidery hoops as decor. They are so simple and elegant when used as a decor, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and make a Christmas wreath using one. 


Supplies needed:
Embroidery hoop: Any size you wish, they come in lots of different sizes. I used an 18" for the wreath I'm sharing today. You'll see the smaller ones used later in my home with the same idea. 
"Let It Snow" plaque 
Hot glue

 Step 1: Take your embroidery hoop and secure it tight. I decided to keep mine natural, but if you wish to paint or stain it, this would be the time to do so.

 Step 2: Using imaginary lines, separate the hoop into four quadrants. You'll want the top of the pine stems to fall below the mid-line, and equidistant from the middle vertical line. Slightly curve the stems, and hot glue into place.

 Step 3: On the last two stems, cut the majority of the wiring off. You can just bend it back and forth a couple of times, and it should do the trick. If not, use some wire cutters.

 Step 4: Add one of these cut stems on top of a stem you already glued. You'll want to glue it closer to the center vertical line, so it's overlapping, but not completely on top of the already glued one.

 Step 5: Do the same thing with the last stem, placing it on right side. You'll notice I have about a two inch gap between my sprays.

 Step 6: In this gap is where you'll add your pine cone stems. I used the stems that have a little frosted snow on top of them, and a bundle of wood. Hot glue these into place.

 Step 7: To make the piece fuller, I added additional pine cones to the sides, hot gluing in place.

 Step 8: Take the gold garland, and roughly measure the distance between the end of where the pine stems start and then where they end. You'll have this garland hiding behind the stems, so don't go any higher on either side. Hot glue the garland on the underside of the embroidery hoop, just right behind the pine stems. Make sure to glue the "backbone" of the garland, and not the little sprays coming off of it.

 Step 9: Slightly open the hoop on the top, slide some jute into the gap, and around the claw on the back of the "let it snow" wood plaque. Knot the jute. Tighten the hoop back up.

 My favorite part of this whole wreath is the gold corkscrew garland flowing down. Reminds me of snow or icicles. It gives this otherwise simple woodland wreath some elegance also.

 This gets me super excited for Christmas, and can't wait to use the other embroider hoop wreaths above my living room mantel this year! Since the embroidery hoops are so simple, it's easy to add more than one above a mantel without it looking too busy.
