No matter the season, a wreath makes any decor a
little more festive! This unique design consists of several pretty
lace shapes, stitched out multiple times and arranged around a hand
embroidery hoop. We'll show you how to stitch your own pretty little
To craft your lace wreath, you will need:
by stitching the pieces of freestanding lace onto heavy duty
water-soluble stabilizer using 40 weight rayon thread. Stitch one
lace piece per hooping to keep your lace looking its best. How many pieces you choose to make is entirely
up to you! We started with approximately seven stitchouts of each piece.
Once you're done stitching, rinse and dry each piece completely. (Here's more on stitching freestanding lace).
Using your hot glue gun, start arranging and overlapping your
lace pieces onto the hand embroidery hoop. Keep in mind that the
more you overlap, the more lace pieces you will need. Feel free to
experiment with more or less lace -- the choice is
entirely up to you. For this example, this 7 inch hoop
took 28 pieces of lace to complete.
Use a pretty ribbon tied around the hoop for hanging your wreath
as an ornament or on a door.
Add lights, a big bow,
or other lace pieces into your unique rustic wreath! The possibilities
This glam celestial wreath goes together the
same way. Hang the crescent moon in the middle for a bit of unique
flair! You can also use paint or a permanent marker to coordinate
your hoop with your lace.
