Beautiful homemade wreaths are some of my very favorite craft projects to make! Spring wreaths are such a great way to refresh any space for the new season.

Faux Succulent Embroidery Hoop Wreath Supplies
- Wood word cutout
- Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Satin Paint
- Paint brush
- 12-inch embroidery hoop
- Hot glue
- Faux succulents
- Artificial greenery
Note: All supplies for my wreath are from Michaels.
- Use a brush to apply 2-3 coats of paint to the wood word cutout, allowing the paint to dry at least 15 minutes between coats. Set the piece aside to dry completely while you make the rest of the wreath.
- Wrap the ribbon around the embroidery hoop, securing the ends with hot glue.
- Remove the stem pieces from the backs of the faux succulents. These pretty artificial succulents from Michaels are perfect for this project! There are so many great varieties to choose from, and the stems can be removed by gently twisting. Note: You might need to apply a bit of hot glue to the topmost layer of the succulent when the stem is removed in order to anchor it in place.
- Arrange the faux greenery succulents along the left edge of the wrapped embroidery hoop as desired, and anchor each piece to the wreath with hot glue.
- Affix the painted wood word to lower right-hand edge of the wreath with hot glue.
Your pretty DIY spring wreath is complete!

Succulent Embroidery Hoop Wreath Q&A
Can I make this wreath with embroidery hoops of other sizes?
Absolutely! Embroidery hoops come in a variety of sizes, and you can go as big or as small as you like. You can even use this same technique to make pretty miniature wreaths by adjusting the size of the succulent and greenery accents used.
Do I have to wrap the embroidery hoop with ribbon?
No! Leave the raw wood exposed for a different look, or even paint the embroidery hoop any color you like. There are lots of great options for this project!
What is the best way to hang the finished wreath?
I have found these Command Hooks to be the perfect size and strength for hanging this particular wreath.
