This one took me three trips to the store and one redo to complete it — but I LOVE it and think it was worth the hassle.
I didn’t have any old, cute shirts to use, so … shopping time it is. I ran to my local thrift store and snagged a few fun items to reuse.

Sunflower Embroidery Hoop Wreaths
The first one I created had a bigger print for the buffalo plaid. It just wasn’t what I had in mind when it was done.
I think buffalo plaid has to have a certain size plaid vs accents (floral) proportion for the design to look great in the end. Here’s a pic where the plaid was just too large.
It looked off to me with the larger plaid in this medium size embroidery hoot.
Since I didn’t have cute old shirts to use so: shopping time it is. I ran to my local thrift store and snagged a few fun patterns, plus I found a cute sweater you can see where I made this winter embroidery hoop wreath.

Assemble Your Embroidery Hoop Wreath
1. First, align the pattern over the smaller hoop. I like to do a rough ‘build’ of the embroidery hoop wreath, so I know what it will look like when I’m done.
2. Next, add ribbons now if you want (here is where I added my burlap ribbon).
3. You will then place the larger hoop on top and tighten the top bracket until it’s almost completely tight.
4. Now, tug on the fabric and ribbon to align things how you want them. Finish tightening the hoop when you are satisfied with the placement.
5. Flip over and trim so excess fabric to about 1/2-1” long. This helps it hang correctly against your wall or door.
- Hot glue the excess fabric to the embroidery hoop. The fabric needs shouldn’t stick out it hangs flat on your wall but it doesn’t have to look pretty.
6. Finally, add floral and accent items — the fun part. Haha! Adding the floral accents makes it your own wreath. There’s no right or wrong way, good design is up to the maker. You can use faux floral or paper flowers if it’s not going outside.

Some of my favorites!
Do you want to see the final?
This grayer buffalo plaid had a smaller-sized pattern, and I think it looks more balanced. The gray is more subtle and makes the sunflower pop!
The “thankful” word was from Hobby Lobby. And so was the ribbon.
Speaking of which, isn’t that ribbon adorable??? It has a nice wire in it and holds the placement well. The “thankful” word is hot glued on.
These hoop wreaths are so fun to make!
Have you made one? I’d love to see yours too!!
