I love switching out my wreaths for every season but it can be expensive. I’ve decided this past Fall that I am going to make a wreath for every season and holiday. This is the embroidery hoop wreath this past fall. I decide to make another one for Christmas.

Now I love buffalo check that is no secret. So when I saw this Spring pastel version I knew it was perfect for my Easter embroidery hoop wreath.

What you'll need

Watch how I made it below

Now you will want to create your design in cricut design space. If you like this design you can find it here. Make sure to measure your widest and shortest points of the embroidery hoop and size the design accordingly.

Once you are ready to cut be sure to mirror your design and select your material iron-on. Place your iron-on shiny side down on the mat and load your mat in your maker.

Double check… Did you mirror your design. I always forget!

Weed your design

Once your design is cut weed the excess iron-on just leaving your lettering. I use my hook (weeding tool) to do this. What I love about iron-on is that it is so much easier to weed than regular vinyl.

Cut your fabric

Laying your fabric down with your embroidery hoop cut your fabric leaving about an inch worth of fabric on each side.

I placed my hoop on the fabric to get a sense of where the wording should be placed. Lift your embroidery hoop and you are ready to grab your EasyPress.

Heat Press

We are going the apply the iron-on to our fabric. Now I wanted to choose a Easter fabric but still something subtle enough that the lettering would shine through. I went with this buffalo check from Joanns. For my heat press I used the Cricut EasyPress2 I set it for 315 degrees for 30 seconds.

I usually let my iron-on cool to the touch before pulling it back. I like using the larger 10x12 EasyPress 2 it covers the whole design.

Embroidery Hoop

I unscrewed the top of the embroidery hoop loosening it just so you could remove the inner circle. I placed my design on top of the smaller hoop once it was in position I placed the larger hoop over it. Make sure to pull the fabric tight and screw the top back into place.

Trim

Once your fabric is in place cut the excess fabric on the back of the hoop.

Use a hot glue gun to glue the excess fabric to the inside of the embroidery hoop. Once the excess fabric is glued you have a clean design that is ready to either hang or embellish.

Glue on accents

I felt that the hoop need a little something to make it feel more like a wreath. I found these Easter egg picks at Michaels and knew they would be perfect to finish off the wreath. Using a high heat glue gun I added the floral pieces to the top of the embroidery hoop.

I am so pleased with how this came out! The pastels just seem to really pop off the door.
