I am sharing my DIY easy wire hoop floral wreath for nursery today. Have I told you my youngest daughter Emily is expecting her second baby in April?
We are beyond excited to have another granddaughter!
This will make 2 granddaughters and 4 grandsons for us. There is nothing better than being a grandma!
Hoop floral wreaths for the nursery
For this baby girls nursery my daughter and I made some easy wire hoop floral wreaths that will hang above her crib.
I had never made a wreath using a wire hoop so this was new to me. My sister and I ran to Walmart and bought the supplies.

How to make the hoop floral wreaths
I do like to craft as long as it is easy to do! Remember when I made this easy craft for fall.
This cake stand is by far my easiest craft ever and it looks professional!
To begin this hoop floral wreath, lay out all your flowers by type, your lambs ear and wire.
Grab 4 stems of the lambs ear and put two on one side of the bottom of the wreath.
Attach them to the wire hoop by wiring them on. Start at the top of one of stems and wrap wire over and under kind of hiding it under the leaves.
Layer the second stem over the first stem and wire it on.
Repeat for the other side of the bottom of the wreath
Adding the flowers to the hoop wreath
Once you have the lambs ear on both side of the bottom of the wreath you can start adding in the flowers.
I started with the largest blossoms first. The peonies are so beautiful and fluffy.
I hot glued one peony in the middle and then added in three ranunculus blooms.
5 Easy wire hoop floral wreaths
We actually ended up making 5 to hang above the baby’s crib.
On the smallest hoop Emily wired on one lambs ear stem, one peony, one carnation and one ranunculus blossom. It looks so cute!
For some of the other wreaths she wired one lambs ear and lots of blossoms to the side of the wreath.
The great thing about this craft is that you can play around with all the greenery and flowers to create whatever you like.
There are no rules. Just have fun with it.
