While browsing the aisle of Walmart one day, I found these gold metal wreath hoops. I instantly thought…I bet I could put beads on those!

I already had a 12″ embroidery hoop at home. You can find these at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, Walmart, etc. over in the sewing section. So, my wheels started spinning and I grabbed some buffalo check fabric and beads!

First, I cut my fabric to where it was big enough to put inside the embroidery hoop. You just want it to fit snug and then tighten the 2 hoops together and trim off any excess fabric on the back.

Next, I used some wire cutters to clip 2 of the gold wreaths so that I could put my beads on. I used 20mm beads on the biggest hoop and just strung them on until it was full, then used hot glue to attach it back together in the middle.

Of course I wanted to paint some beads too, so I used some 14mm beads and painted them with my trick THAT YOU CAN SEE RIGHT HERE! I strung them on the smaller one and attached with hot glue also.

I simply used some twine to hang them from the top! I added some lambs ear greenery (hot glued it on) to the sides and then painted a little wood piece I had from Hobby lobby white and put it in the middle! For more detailed instructions, watch the FB LIVE HERE!
