Hi friends! By now you probably know how much I love a quick and easy DIY project. This week I’m excited to share how I made a super easy DIY Winter hoop wreath! It only took me around 15 minutes to make – and it was so simple!
This week I am joining in with some talented bloggers, and sharing some great DIY Christmas projects with you! There are so many great project ideas to get you started decorating for Christmas this year.

I found all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby – the green pine needle picks were only $1 each, the embroidery hoop was around $2, and the gold pine cone picks (in groups of 3) were $0.50. Such an inexpensive project that looks so beautiful once it is all put together!
First you will start by cutting your greenery. You will trim off each branch off of the pick to give you several individual branches. Then you will trim the pinecones off of their pick. I left them grouped together as a group of three, and trimmed as close to the base of the plastic as possible.
Next you will arrange your greenery branches along your hoop to decide how you want to have them placed. I played around with the arrangement a couple times before deciding on my final placement.
Then you will start gluing down your branches with the hot glue, making sure to hold down each piece for around 10 seconds to make sure it is secure. I started with gluing down the bottom layer, then the pine cone grouping, and then added in a couple more branches on top to add some more dimension and layering.
Next you will add some twine to create a loop for hanging. I love the simplicity of this wreath, and it can stay up all winter long – not just for Christmas!
