We raided our craft stash and created a simple DIY Canvas Banner Hoop Wreath using a leftover embroidery hoop and drop cloth. Check out 13 other clever upcycled projects to get your wheels turning for the possibilities of what YOU may already have on hand and can make!
There is such a joy in repurposing items that would otherwise go to the donation center! When we were recently transitioning my Craft Room to a teen/media room (bittersweet!) I found a pile of embroidery hoops leftover from a craft night, excess yarn, and bit of drop cloth from our recent Oversized Boho Drop Cloth banner and knew it would be the perfect trio to repurpose into a simple DIY Canvas Banner Hoop Wreath. Also, be sure to look at what 13 of our very talented blog buddies repurposed as well… spoiler alert: they’re projects are gorgeous!

How to make a Canvas Banner Hoop Wreath
Making this canvas banner hoop wreath is a breeze and can be made in less than 30 minutes for expert crafters or for beginners, it really shouldn’t take much longer. Another mom win craft FTW!
STEP 1: Using scissors, cut a strip of drop cloth. (My hoop was 8″ so my strip is roughly 3.5″ thick x 9.5″ wide… I like it chunky!)
STEP 2: Using a thin marker (it slightly bleeds) write HELLO, HI, WELCOME or whatever you wish to say across your strip drop cloth. This would also be darling as baby shower decor with the words “It’s a Girl/Boy” written across it. Furthermore, you can write your house numbers on it and hang it next to your front door… oooh, the possibilities with this little cutie!
STEP 3: Lay canvas banner across the hoop and wrap the ends around the hoop, secure with hot glue.
STEP 4: Time to embellish! Layer greenery stems across the hoop and secure with floral wire.
STEP 5: Repeat with florals and/or billy balls on top, securing to form with floral wire.
STEP 6: Finally, tie a piece of yard (or twine) to the top of your hoop and hang. So easy!
I hung this on my little storage shed to spruce it up but you can hang in within a gallery wall, on your front door to welcome guests, or on a hook.
However you hang it, it’s sure to cheer up anyone who sees it!
