Fall Laurel Wreath Tutorial

I have always loved a laurel wreath but the past year my love has morphed into an obsession. I'm really digging the new modern twist on wreaths that create a simpler look using embroidery or metal hoops. I wanted to blend both my love of traditional style with a clean modern look in this wreath. It was so simple and took no time at all. It can be slightly altered for all seasons, can you imagine this with lavender for the spring?!?!

All greenery and florals are from my very favorite flower supplier Afloral!


18 inch Wooden Embroidery Hoop
Wood Stain
Wide Cutters
Hot Glue Gun
2 inch wide White Satin Ribbon (wireless)

Step 1:
Remove the inner layer of the embroidery hoop and apply a rough stain. 
Follow directions and allotted drying time on your stain's label.

Step 2:
Lay out your stems and cut down to size. 
Then start to attach by applying a thin bead line of hot glue along the edge of the hoop. 
Hot glue will dry quickly so only work section by section. 
Be careful not to burn your fingers while applying pressure to the stem while glue dries. 

Step 3-5
Now repeat step 2 with each stem, carefully layering each as pictured.

Step 6:
Cut ribbon to about 6 feet long and tie a knot in the center of your 
wreath covering where your stems meet.

Step 7:
Finish out by tying a large floppy bow that will hang low.
