I love a hoop wreath. You can make them in a variety of sizes but making them extra large as party decoration may be my very favorite. I am actually partnering with Cricut on this post however all projects an opinions are my own. You see they released a Cricut Wisteria Explore Air 2 Bundle that is exclusive to JOANN stores. If you are in the market for a machine, you don’t want to miss this deal and yes it is so perfect for mom for Mother’s Day!
We will get to how to make the hoop wreath later in this post. I did want to talk about the fabulous bundle first! You, of course, get the Cricut Wisteria Explore Air 2 Bundle in that gorgeous metallic shimmery purple color that is a perfect compliment to the Pantone Color of the year, Ultra Violet. What else do you get with the bundle?

You of course get all the functionality of an Explore Air 2 machine with the ability to cut, write, and score all in 1-step. If you haven’t used one of these machines before, you will love the Smart Set Dial that lets you cut paper, vinyl, and more all with no need to manually adjust the blade. So many materials and so little time y’all! The Wisteria Explore Air 2 can actually cut up to 100+ materials. Use Cricut Design Space to choose from 1000’s of ready to make projects, design your own project, or even upload images. Of course, for my hoop wreath, I am giving you the cut file below!

Hoop Wreath Instructions:
Start by adding your holographic iron on to the mat face down. You also want to be sure to mirror your image before cutting so that the words appear correctly once ironed on.
You can actually pull up the cut file on your phone or even your tablet if you don’t want to use a desktop. The Wisteria Explore Air 2 machine can connect with a USB or via Bluetooth giving you tons of options.
Then just use the machine to cut your iron on.
Once the cut is complete, you will need to weed any excess from around your design. I highly recommend using a weeding tool and one actually comes in the Cricut Wisteria Explore Air 2 Bundle. Yes it even matches your machine!
Use the tool to help you grab all of those little tidbits until you are left with only the part that is to be ironed to your burlap ribbon.
Cut the pieces apart and place them on the ribbon. Note that I cut the word in two in Cricut Design Space so it would fit on one 12×12 inch sheet. Just cut the carrier sheet close where it joins and line them up once on the ribbon.
I used my Cricut EasyPress and EasyPress mat to add the iron on to my burlap ribbon. You can use an iron instead if you would like. Yes there is a Wisteria EasyPress for those that have eagle eyes! We will talk a bit more about that on Wednesday so be sure to stay tuned. Yes it is another bundle and it is fabulous!
Find the EasyPress settings here. Remember that the settings change depending on whether or not you are using the mat so be sure to look each time to verify. For an iron, the holographic iron on came with instructions that you can use.
The holographic iron in is a cold peel so you will want to let your project cool completely before peeling back the liner sheet.
Now we are ready to start on that hoop wreath! Remove the outer ring from the quilting hoop and set aside for another project.
Start laying out the banner and flowers until you get an arrangement you love. Note that I used some flowers as well as some decor balls that were in the floral section at my local JOANN store.
Then use hot glue to secure all of the flowers into place. I opted to tie the banner on with a bit of twine. This gives me the option of changing up the banner for another party or even removing it completely and using the wreath in my home’s decor.
Just gather the ends of the burlap ribbon and tie tightly with twine or ribbon.
Then you are ready to hang your hoop wreath wherever the party is taking place! My wreath says “congrats” but you can literally make this say anything you would like. It would be perfect for weddings as well!
Make your own extra large hoop wreath with the supplies in the Cricut Wisteria Explore Air 2 Bundle. You are sure to love the results!
I mean just look at those gorgeous flowers all on a wreath!
I added mine to a graduation party this past Saturday. Stay tuned for more from that party as you don’t want to miss it!
