Farmhouse Wood Bead Wreath

Hi friends,

This is one of those projects that turned out even better than I had imagined! I love when that happens! 🙂

It’s a simple Farmhouse Wood Bead Wreath that is made using a wood quilting/embroidery hoop as a base. Here’s what you’ll need…

I used both pieces of the hoop – just make sure that the outer part of the hoop is screwed tightly to the inner part. Then simply glue your split wood beads to the hoop. I started at the top and worked my way around. I used 46 beads on the 14-inch hoop.

While the glue was drying on the beads, I painted my wood word with 2 coats of white chalky finish paint, letting it dry completely between coats. Then I glued it to the wreath at an angle. I attached my greenery with glue to the top part of the outer hoop. (There’s probably a name for it, but I don’t know what it is 😛 )

I made a bow using the super easy method over on re-fabbed. If you don’t follow Brooke on re-fabbed, you should! She is so cute and has the most amazing ideas! The bow is glued to the hoop over the stems of the greenery. Then I tied a piece of the monofilament thread around the top of the hoop to hang my wreath.

And here’s my finished wreath…

The split wood beads I used came in a package of 100 which is enough to make 2 (14-inch) wreaths. Hobby Lobby carries other wood words like welcome, hello, and thankful. You could leave the word natural and not paint it at all. I painted mine because the edges of the word were darker than I wanted. This wreath would also be cute with a galvanized metal word. And of course you can change the size of the wreath by changing the size of your embroidery hoop.

Feeling Blessed,

Anita
