Elegant & Easy Floral Hoop Wreath: Perfect for Weddings & Showers

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I LOVE flowers.  That’s why you all forgave me last June when I went slightly crazy and published five posts on just peonies.

My peony bushes tested my patience this year and took two weeks longer to bloom.  Now that they’re finally opening, I need to make a DIY with them.

Enter, the floral hoop wreath.

Need a quick and cheap decoration for a wedding or bridal shower?  The floral hoop wreath is your answer!  So beautiful using flowers like peonies from your backyard.

With only a few days before Alex and Carvil’s Canadian wedding reception, I need to get ready for the main event.

For this project you will need:

  • Three brass hoops (I found mine at my local dollar store.)
  • Floral tape
  • Flowers and greenery from your garden
  • Ribbon or string
  • Scissors

If you are going to use peonies for this project, I suggest using smaller ones.  I had a difficult time keeping the largest one in place.

Start by grouping small bunches of flowers together and securing them with floral tape.  It’s the same process we used a few weeks ago to make boutonnieres.

I like to stick to one main flower, one supporting flower, one longer flower or green, and one filler green.

Let’s Make a Floral Hoop Wreath!

Secure your end pieces to your hoop using more floral tape.  Tie in the main flower bunches and add any fillers if necessary.

The peony in this picture looks great, but it really is too heavy for this project.  Don’t use anything larger than the smaller peony pictured in this photo.

I made two more hoops and secured them with turquoise curling ribbon.

This project took around 30 minutes to do.  If you haven’t worked with flowers before, I would allow yourself an hour.

I spent $6 for the hoops and floral tape.  I already had the curling ribbon and all the flowers are from my backyard.

(Or my mothers.  I’m not sure if she’s fully recovered from my pillaging of her garden last year.)

A word of caution: Do not leave your floral hoop wreaths in full summer sun, or they will quickly wilt.

These wreaths would be perfect for a backyard bridal shower or as decorations for an outdoor wedding.  Won’t you give it a try?

P.S.- If you like your peonies in non-perishable form, my friend Sarah at Pretty Simple Ideas has a great peony DIY with coffee filters.
