You've found a simple DIY flower hoop for your wedding party. It's something unique and different for your maid of honor, bridesmaids, junior bride or flower girl. With just a few supplies, this craft is quick, simple and inexpensive. A flower hoop can be embellished with many things such as ribbon, beads and flowers.
For this tutorial, we'll keep it simple, but gorgeous. This is one I made for a boho wedding, so I kept it minimal, not too much froufrou and used simple flowers and greenery.
1 Large Silk Rose (color of your choosing)
Lace (wide enough to wrap the embroidery hoop; I used white.)
Silk Greenery (rose leaves, willow leaves, or other leaves)
Small Silk Flowers (not the same color as your rose but matching)
Jute Rope (I used a three strand cord, unwrapped to get a frilly look.)
WARNING: HOT GLUE HURTS! Please be careful not to burn your fingers.
1. Cut your lace in a long strip that is about 2" wide and as long as it needs to be to go around the outside edge of your wooden embroidery hoop. If it's longer that's fine you can cut it later.
2. Start hot gluing the lace at the top or bottom of the inside of the hoop. Run a narrow line of glue along the inside edge. Go back and forth a couple times so that your glue is flat and not a high bead. This will allow you to trim it up after glueing. Work in a short line so that your glue does not cool too fast. Stretch your lace so that it is snug (not tight) around your hoop securing both edges. Your beginning and ending of the lace strip will indicate the bottom when done. After working your way around the hoop trim the final end of the lace to make a pretty little seam. Then trim all the way around the outer edge so that you don't notice where the lace comes together.
3. Play around with arranging your leaves over the lace seam. Remember that the large rose will sit in them. When you are satisfied with the way the leaves look, carefully hot glue them in place.
4. Cut your jute so that it is 2-3 inches longer than your hoop. You'll need two strands.
5. Loop one strand of jute in a U shape. Secure one end at the right side top. Then secure the same strand at the bottom hiding it under the leaves as you wrap it loosely around your hoop and then secure the end at the right side top where you started the wrapping. (a few inches from top center)
6. Do the same for the second strand of jute.
7. Glue the small leaves and flowers to cover where the jute ends.
And there you have it. A gorgeous DIY flower hoop to adorn your beautiful wedding.
