Nothing says the holidays like a wreath. But this year I decided to make a pretty wreath to welcome in the holiday for the inside of the house.
I really love the wreath I made using embroidery hoops for fall. I was thinking to make it so I could change out the fall leaves to a more Christmas look. Then I decided to make a new wreath along the same idea.

I really like the effect of using a doily between the embroidery hoops. This time I decided to cut up a lace tablecloth in a circle. The circle is cut about two inches larger than the embroidery hoops. At first, I was going to go with a silver color pallet and spray painted the lace.
But I wasn’t feeling it. I flipped it over and used white spray paint. Now you may wonder why I spray painted the lace. It stiffens the doily so it has body. I also sprayed the embroidery hoops white.
Then I started decorating the wreath. Start by gluing the pieces of pine to the bottom of the embroidery hoop. I made this asymmetrical so one side is a little smaller than the other side. Fill in the pine with sprigs with sparkle.
Take the small flowers and glue along the side of the greenery. The ones I used are from a hydrangea. I just pulled a few pieces off and glued them on.
Make a bow and glue to the bottom between the greenery. And I expect yours will look prettier than the one I made. But it works.
Next glue the poinsettias to the bottom. I used three. It bridges the gap between the greenery.
I was thinking I may change the bow after Christmas to a more generic one so I can leave it up in January. A little sparkle can brighten up a house, don’t you agree?
