Embroidery Hoop Halloween Wreath!

September 16, 2015 | by Jocie (email) |

I typically don’t decorate much for Halloween, but this year I was inspired by some crafty friends to create a Halloween Wreath. This easy, no-sew Embroidery Hoop Halloween Wreath is perfect for those of you who don’t necessarily go over the top, but enjoy a little festivities. 


Materials Needed

Most the the supplies I used I bought at Walmart and I think I spent around $15, give or take. You could also pick up these supplies in any craft store.

  • 3 embroidery hoops
  • 3 wooden letters (one B, two O’s)
  • Embroidery fabric, two packages
  • Black Acrylic paint
  • Orange Ribbon
  • Hot Glue


Step 1: Paint the Letters

I used a foam brush to lightly paint black just on the front of the letters. I liked the idea of having the side wood exposed, highlighting the exposed wood of the embroidery hoop.


Step 2: Sharpie Design

Probably the most difficult step for my was putting the embroidery fabric into the hoop. Seriously not easy. haha Then, after I had trimmed the fabric I realized that the lines of the fabric were not lined up straight with the fastener of the embroidery hoop. So take it from me – do that first!

Once the fabric was in the hoop, I free-handed some simple geometric shapes with a fine-tip Sharpie onto the fabric. It was by no means perfect, but way easier than sewing the design.


Step 3: Glue

Next I glued the letters onto each hoop and the orange ribbon onto the back. It was quite tedious making sure the ribbon was lined up straight. I cut smaller pieces and glued them to the inside of the hoop, in hopes it would hold better and stay straight.


Step 4: Hang & Enjoy

Super simple, right? Maybe you didn’t need that step by step since it was pretty self-explanatory, but I thought why not show you just how easy it is!


The “O” with the arrows is my favorite design, although the one that has the most mistakes. haha
