Subtle and delicate, the lilac hue is a fabulous fit for the romantic hearts. And today we wanted to share how to craft a hoop wreath with faux flowers in shades of lilac. They add a dose of charm to any special celebration or you may just hang it above a mantel or on a door all year long. Keep on scrolling to see the step-by-step tutorial!
What you will need
- Embroidery hoop
- Lilac-hued blooms
- Violet fillers
- Maidenhair ferns
- Dusty baby eucalyptus
- Baby’s breath
- Wire stems
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
Step 1 We feel like it would be better to plan first on how you want the hoops to look like. In this example, we place the flowers in the focal position.
Start by lining 3~4 wire stems around the bottom side of the hoop and secure with one wire stem. They serve as the base for the florals.
Step 2 Glue roseheads in different sizes to the end of the stems one by one. We use roses in layering shades of lilac to create depth.
Step 3 For some organic textures, add maidenhair ferns and baby eucalyptus to the wire stems with hot glue gun. The approach is to keep the hoop wreath from too heavy-weighted.
Step 4 Finish off, fill in the violet accents and the petite flowers for a chic touch to the hoop.
