Making a Simple and Cute Faux Floral Hoop Wreath

There is something about eucaplytus leaves that I personally find so striking. Even placing them inside a simple vase would bring a smile to my face. But I especially like the look of the leaves with these soft, pretty pink Spring bushes.

The polka-dotted ribbon is the finishing touch to this super-simple and “girly” wreath. Create your own fun ribbon using any stencil template of your choosing! The basketweave stencil we used to make this Fall art would work well or even this zig zag stencil we used for a canvas table runner would do the trick!

Materials Needed to Make a Floral Hoop Wreath

Materials needed to make a floral hoop wreath, including a gold hoop, eucalyptus plants, pink flowers, floral tape, stencil, paint brush, floral tape, paint and canvas.

How to make a Floral Hoop Wreath

Stenciling the ribbon:

Place the long piece of cut ribbon on a protected flat surface and position the polka-dot stencil over top of the ribbon. Dip the stencil brush in the paint and blot off the excess paint. Holding the stencil in place, begin to dab the paint onto the ribbon until your happy with the coverage. 

Peel away the stencil and reposition it along another section of the ribbon. Continue until the entire ribbon length is stenciled. Leave the ribbon to dry fully before using.

Preparing the ribbon:

To form the center loop of the ribbon, fold in the sides of the smaller cut ribbon widthwise reducing the total width to 1 ¼” wide. Next fold the ribbon lengthwise in half tucking in the cut edges approximately ½” on either end. Using a sewing needle and thread, begin to sew the loop closed to form the center loop. Put aside. 

Next, take the long stencilled ribbon and fold in half lengthwise to mark the center point. Lay the ribbon on a flat surface, stenciled side facing down. Fold the ends inward at the midway point criss crossing them at the center.

Precut a piece of floral wire approximately 5” long. Pinch the center of the bow with your fingers and wrap a cut piece of floral wire around the center to hold the bow in place. 

To finish the bow, thread the one side of the bow through the prepared ribbon loop positioning the stitched side of the loop towards the back of the bow. Pull one end of the wire through the loop as well. This wire will be used to attach the bow to the wreath.

Assembling the Wreath:

Place the eucalyptus sprigs hanging downward over top of the metal ring (in other words, with the foliage stem upwards).

Precut a piece of floral wire. Fold the wired stem of the foliage in half looping it over the gold ring and tie a piece of floral wire around the folded stem to hold it in place. Add more floral wire if needed to secure the eucalyptus sprig in place. To protect your fingers from the cut wire, you can wear a pair of gardening gloves.

Add some additional faux floral bunches on top and secure them in place with more floral wire.

Rip off a piece of floral tape and wrap it around the stem of the eucalyptus until it looks tidy and neat and all the exposed wire is concealed.

Place the prepared ribbon at the top of the gold ring and attach it to the hanging eucaplytus at the point of the folded stem.

Create another small loop with the ends of the floral wire to use for hanging the wreath. By using this loop for hanging, it will also force the faux florals and bow to remain in place at the top of the wreath.
