This Winter Candle Hoop Wreath is so pretty and only takes about 15 minutes to make.
This time of year I’m usually frantically working on projects for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyone else in the same situation? How about making this pretty wreath with just a few supplies that only takes about 15 minutes to make? If you love quick crafts as much as I do this one is for you.
Here’s the supplies needed for the candle hoop wreath:
hoop wreath (8″-12″)
Winter or Christmas foliage
twine or ribbon
small flowers or mistletoe
battery operated tea light candle
Let’s start by adding glitter to the battery operated tea light. Apply mod podge around the outside of the tea light using a small paint brush. Then sprinkle glitter on the wet mod podge and shake off the excess. I’ve recently discovered glitter tape so if you’d rather use that, that’s a good option.
Sometimes the glitter likes to stick to other places. You can use a q-tip to remove glitter from the areas you don’t want it to be. Set the tea light aside to dry while you finish the rest of the wreath.
Add twine to the hoop to hang the wreath from once it’s finished. You can also use ribbon if you prefer. I cut off a large amount so I could adjust it once I decided where to hang it.
Choose the colors you will be decorating with for Christmas or Winter. I will be decorating with gold, silver, bronze, brown and a little green this year. Do you change your colors every year? I’ve found that it’s more common than it used to be. I enjoy changing the color scheme a little every year and I save money by painting or making most of the decorations myself.
I decided not to paint the hoop but you could paint or stain the hoop to match your color scheme. Cut the foliage and berries with wire cutters to the length you like. Hot glue the pieces in place as shown. You can bend them around the hoop if you prefer.
Add the mistletoe, berries, or even bells to the center of the foliage. It hides the berry and foliage ends and makes a pretty center. You could also put a ribbon in the center.
Hot glue the tea light to the bottom center of the hoop. Make sure you can still use the switch to turn the candle on and off.
Tie the twine or ribbon to the length you want then cut off the excess. It’s very easy to customize the hoop wreath to your decor and color scheme. It’s also super inexpensive and easy to make. I made a couple more of different sizes and grouped them together for a beautiful display.
I hope you enjoy this quick craft!
