Every year I like to do a bit of Christmas crafting and one thing that appears to have become a bit of a tradition is that I always write a little tutorial on here on how to make a Christmas Wreath. They’ve changed from the natural Christmas wreath I made while slightly intoxicated at the Church Christmas do (oops!) to the super quick Christmas wreath I made last year and now I’m sharing a quick tutorial for an embroidery hoop wreath I made yesterday. I think this is my favourite so far!
Foliage (mine is a bit cut from our Christmas tree)
My first bit of advice would be to only cut the foliage you need as you require it. I arguably cut a bit too much from our tree and while it doesn’t show at all I still feel a bit guilty!
Place one bit of foilage at the bottom middle of your embroidery hoop and tie in place with your thread. I wound each bit around three times and secured it with a triple knot.
Of course you could keep going all the way around your hoop but I think that leaving part of it uncovered gives it a bit of vintage and crafty charm!
My embroidery hoop wreath is currently hanging in my front room and even my son has approved of it – high praise indeed!!
