Summer hoop wreath idea with macrame cord and faux succulents or flowers

Cut a long piece of macrame cord of its spool, and begin wrapping it around the metal hoop. Tack it with hot glue at the beginning, and then about every 10 wraps to keep it in place.

Next, cut 20 length of macrame cord that measure about 20″ long each. Attach them to the bottom of the hoop using a lark’s head knot.

Using the first four strands of macrame cord on the right hand side of your hoop, create a square knot about 2″ down from the hoop. Repeat until you’ve created 10 square knots across the bottom of the hoop.

Then create another staggered row of square knots by skipping the first two cord strands on the right, and using the next 4 strands to create another square knot about 2″ down from the first row. Repeat until you’ve created a row of 9 square knots.

Unravel the bottoms of the cords, brush them out with a hair brush, and then trim the bottom of the piece to your desired shape. I trimmed mine into an arrow shape.

So cute & summer, right?

You could also create a more country / romantic version of this wreath by tying a mix of macrame cord and cotton lace trim to the base of a covered hoop with lark’s heads knots. Instead of succulents, use faux peonies for a softer, more colourful alternative.
