Today I'm going to show you how I made my new wreath using an embroidery hoop...
-embroidery hoop (mine was $2.97 from Walmart)
-hemp string (under $2 at Walmart or any craft store)
**Note- I spent $5 to get my supplies, but I only used half the hoop and about half the roll of hemp string. So this project was around $2 or $3 to make.
- I took the embroidery hoop apart and used the inner circle so I didn't have the bulky part on the outer piece with the screw.
- Tied the string onto the hoop, using a double knot.
- I began wrapping the string around. I didn't allow it it overlap. I wanted it to look tidy.
Every so often I pushed the newly wrapped part over so that it was wrapped around tightly and it wouldn't allow any of the blue hoop to show through.
Any time my roll of string got tangled or I just felt like it, I would cut it off, then add a new knot and continue going. So there are a few visible knots showing on the wreath, which I thought made it look more interesting.
When I was finished wrapping the string around the entire hoop, I added some t-shirt pom pom flowers using my glue gun to finish it off.
I like the simplicity of the hemp string with the bold colours of the yellow and blue flowers.
It definitely makes me think of summer time! Oh yeah!
