Step by step:

Step 1

Start with you greenery. Starting from the bottom up, tie working your way halfway up top the floral hoop making it look thicker at the bottom of the hoop and thinner as you work upwards leaving about 8-10cm at the bottom for your flowers.

  • Starting from the bottom up to half way of the hoop, lay your greenery down and hot glue the greenery to the metal floral hoop
  • Make sure that your greenery is thicker and more dense at the base of the hoop compared to the middle of the hoop so you can a more flush arched look

Step 2

Hot glue your ranunculus to the inner part of the floral hoop making sure you curve them to the shape of the hoop, facing their heads up.

  • Grab your small headed flowers and glue them to the inside of the hoop
  • We chose Ranunculus stems as our small headed flowers
  • Make sure to curve the flowers to follow the shape of the hoop. This will create more open space in the inner of the hoop.

Step 3

Glue your succulents on either side of where you will be placing your rose heads. Allow roughly 10-15cm for where your rose heads will lie.

Step 4

Glue your rose heads to the bottom of your hoop.

Step 5

When you have placed your roses on your hoop, glue some more eucalyptus around your roses to give it that fullness that it needs.

Step 6

Get your ribbon on arm length and tie it to the floral hoop using a fine jute string (you can tie it to the top, bottom or to the side of your hoop). Any kind of bow would suit.

    Hi,
    Would you use a spool wire to tie the greenery and flowers onto the hoop instead of using a hot glue gun to do so? Is there added benefit for doing so even compared to glueing?

    If you don’t recommend using florist wire in this case, when would you use it in regards to creating wreaths?

    Also, in what situation would you use a hoop vs wreath frame?

    Thank you

      Hi Rachel,
      Thank you for your question on this DIY article.
      Hot gluing is usually a personal preference. It quite often is a faster way to adhere flowers to a prop like a hoop. The free flowing glue will fill any gaps that are created between flowers and the hoop.

      You could use spool wire or a 24g wire in that case if this is your preferred method of fixing flowers to such accessory such as a hoop. You can also use cable ties which can speed up the process instead of wiring. If you use wires instead of hot glue, we would recommend getting some chicken wire and wrapping it around the hoop where you want to place your flowers and securing it firmly with wire or cable ties.

      The choice of using a wreath or a hoop generally comes down to how much of the base accessory do you want showing and which one you find easier to work with depending on the flowers and foliage you are using.

      We hope this helps and should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

      Hi Vivian, thank you for reaching out to us. In regards to flowers, the choice of flower or foliage type is entirely dependent on yourself and it’s all down to personal preference! The type of flowers that would make the biggest impact is the flowers you (or the lucky gift receiver) prefer!
