Hello friends! Today, I am joining a group of talented bloggers to share some great Christmas DIYs with you all. I am sooooo excited to share this DIY with you today. Lately, I have been super busy with so many fun Christmas projects, but these Christmas Hoop Wreaths are probably my absolute favorite.
If this is your first visit to Beauty For Ashes, welcome! I’m so thankful that you stopped by for a visit today. I love meeting new friends! And to all of my existing friends that visit me on a regular basis, thank you sooooo much for your support!! I couldn’t do this without you.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year to decorate. I wanted to change out a lot of my Christmas decor this year and it wasn’t in the budget to buy all new decor, so I’ve been doing a lot of DIYing. I love finding budget friendly projects to do that are fairly easy. A few weeks ago, I shared some Christmas DIYs with Dollar Tree supplies.
Let’s go ahead a get started with making these Christmas hoop wreaths, shall we.

Christmas Hoop Wreaths
What You Needed
Fabric (I used some left over ivory linen fabric that I had)
What to do:
1. Print your desired words on transfer sheets. I’ve shared the words that I used HERE. Be sure to print your words in reversed image (I’ve already reversed them for you in the attached file). I forgot to do this the first time I printed and wasted a sheet of transfer paper. Cut out each of your words, trimming as close to the word as possible.
2. Prepare your fabric. I used some left over fabric that I had from making some pillows. I cut them into 2.5″ strips and then cut each one to the desired length depending on the size of the embroidery hoop.
3. Once you have your fabric ready and your words printed on the transfer sheets, you are ready to iron them on. Follow the instructions for your transfer sheets to do this.
4. Next, take your hoop apart and place your fabric in the center of the inner hoop, wrapping the fabric around the edge. I used a little hot glue on each edge to hold the fabric in place. Then replace the outer hoop and tighten it.
5. Now you are going to cut your garland or greenery with your wire cutters. Measure the length you need by placing it on your hoop in the area that you want to attach it. Once you cut your desired length, use your hot glue gun to attach it to the wreath.
6. You will repeat this process for each of your hoops.
How to Display your Christmas Hoop Wreaths
I knew I wanted to hang my hoop wreaths in a collage, but as I was making them, I remember that I had a chippy white banister rail in storage that would be perfect to display these on.
I laid them out on the floor to come up with the configuration that I wanted and attached them to the banister rail before we hung it on the wall. We hung in on our wall in the living room, behind the sofa. I’ll be sharing a home tour of all of my Christmas decor this Friday, so be sure to check back for the full reveal.
You can hang your wreaths directly on a wall, or you can find a cool architectural piece to display them on; such as a window frame, old door, shutter, screen, the possibilities are endless. I’m sure you have lots of creative ideas and I’d love to hear them in the comments below.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this DIY and it has given you some inspiration to create some of your Christmas decor this year. Be sure to scroll a little further down for more inspiration from my friends.
Have a wonderful day friends, and be blessed! xoxo
