Create a DIY Floral Hoop Wreath using an embroidery hoop, faux florals, and a little bit of ribbon. This embroidery hoop wreath is perfect for a nursery.
It’s been a really long time since I’ve crafted, but it felt really good to stretch those creative muscles again! I love how the Embroidery Hoop Floral wreath for Baby Girl’s nursery turned out.

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, my mom hosted one of my baby showers at my house. She thought it would be less stressful for me. But I ended up stressing out about silly things. At the last minute, I crafted a baby shower-themed wreath for the front door. After the shower, I hung the wreath on her nursery door.
Now that we are working on the nursery for Baby #2, I wanted to make her a wreath. I’m determined to not give this child a “second child” complex haha.
The nursery is shaping up to be a lot more understated than my older daughter’s, so I wanted a simple, yet girly, wreath to match that vibe.

How to Create an Embroidery Hoop Wreath
Start with a 12″ wooden embroidery hoop. I painted my hoop white for contrast against our dark doors. A lovely stained finish would be perfect for hanging against a white wall.
Since the nursery colors are purple and teal I decided to utilize greenery. I picked up a few faux purple flower bundles and some greenery. I attached them directly to the hoop using hot glue.
Adding More Color and Polish
The stems were very exposed. And it was a little bit of a hot mess. So I wrapped the exposed stems and hot glue with a lavender ribbon. This added more color and covered up the mess.
I also added some more ribbons to hang from the bottom of the greenery. At this point, I still thought it was a tad too simple.
For good measure, I added one of the buttons from our Honeymoon to Disney World a million years ago. The button matches the wreath perfectly and I love that it brings a little Disney magic to her bedroom decor. Plus, it added some romantic sentimentality to the decor, which I can’t pass up!
I love the understated elegance of this little embroidery hoop floral wreath and I think it goes perfectly with my vision for the nursery. Whether or not that will match Baby Girl’s personality is yet to be determined.
My eldest’s personality definitely matches her bright walls and empowered princess theme. Maybe I will get a more “chill” kiddo this time. We will find out soon! I went to the doctor yesterday and things are already started to progress!
This weekend we will finish cleaning out the nursery, put the crib together and hang some art on the walls. I also finished washing all of Baby Girl’s clothes this week, so those need to be loaded into the dresser. Then, it’s all a matter of taking inventory and seeing what else we need or want, both for the baby and for her room!
