DIY Hula Hoop Wreath for Spring


  • Hula Hoop (I got mine at the Dollar Tree)
  • Green Yarn (I used around 44 feet of yarn; while I used Dollar Tree Just Chenille yarn, I do not recommend it.)
  • Faux flowers
  • Butterfly embellishments
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1

Knot the yarn around the hula hoop.

Wrap the yarn around the hula hoop, making sure not to leave any gaps. While this is really easy, it can take a long time! So this is best to do while watching a TV show or movie.

When you have wrapped the entire hoop with yarn, tie a knot and cut off the excess yarn.

Step 2

Remove flowers from the stems. These should just pull off, but you may need to use wire cutters to remove the flowers.

Arrange the flowers in color groups around the hoop. I added the flowers to one side and down the bottom of the hoop.

Step 3

Hot glue the flowers to the hoop. I started on the top of where my flowers were positioned, gluing the first cluster down, then using the next group of flowers to cover the stem and hot glue.

Continue this with all of the flowers that you are using.

Step 4

Add butterfly embellishments to the wreath. Cover the stems of the last flower bunch with faux leaves to make it look tidy.

Then I placed the butterflies at each end of the flowers, with one or two among the flowers.

My faux butterflies were on a wire, so I twisted the wire around the hoop.

Alternatively, you could hot glue the butterflies on the wreath.

Step 5

Tie a hanger with the yarn around the hoop.

Helpful Tips

  • Hula hoops come in a variety of sizes. The amount of yarn, flowers and embellishments you will need will depend on the size you use.
  • Flowers can be arranged in a variety of ways. We chose to do an asymetrical rainbow ombre look.
  • Variations include combining the flowers together, adding flowers only to the bottom of the wreath, covering the entire wreath, etc.
  • I used Dollar Tree chenille yarn but would encourage you to use a different type. The Dollar Tree yarn is so thin you have to wrap the hoop more times than if you used a thick yarn. Also, this yarn sheds quite a bit.
