While checking out a barn sale, I found the largest embroidery hoop I’ve ever seen!. Today I will show you how to make a wagon wheel wreath with it.

We are excited to be back sharing thrift store makeovers with you! I’ve seen a sneak peek of the projects this month and all I can say is WOW!

There are some talented ladies in this group.

It is so cool to team up with people who love thrifting as much as I do. I’m trying to get my daughter to love it and she’s definitely getting better, but at 22 she would prefer to hit Sephora or Ulta 🙂 

I stumbled upon this really cool barn sale one day and knew from the outside it was going to be filled with treasures and it was. Look at this beautiful barn: Barn Sale

The woman who owns the shop was so sweet and was laughing at my excitement. It was hard to narrow down what I wanted as my mind was spinning with ideas.

Here is what I ended up with: An old wire spool for $15 (score) that I hope to turn into a table:

Large corbels that will either grace a window, doorway or maybe a shelf:


And finally this extra large embroidery hoop that is about the size of a hula hoop:

You ready for the price? It was $3-can you believe it? I scooped this baby up and went right to the craft store to buy small dowels to fit in the hoop.

This came into the craft store with me so I could make sure I bought the right size dowels. It barely fit in the carriage and I did receive a few strange looks.

But I was on a mission. Here are the dowels I picked up after I gave them a quick coat of black paint: dowels

The embroidery hoop received the same black paint and I added a top coat of silver metallic: close up painted hoop

Now that the embroidery hoop and dowels were painted, I used my trusty cordless glue gun to secure the dowels. I will go back and add nails though, as it is not as secure as I would like.

Now I needed something to go in the center of the hoop to try to make it look more like a wagon wheel. Luckily, I had a wood slice in my stash that was the perfect size, so I gave that the same coat of black paint and hot glued it to the center. This also made the dowels more secure:  wood slice for center of wreath

It still needed a little something so I added a smaller chunky wood slice to the center and I was much happier with how that looked: small wood slice

Finally, I added gorgeous extra large frosted succulents and peonies that were on Christmas clearance at 80% off. Just because something has glitter on it doesn’t make it Christmas, right? 

These flowers can definitely be kept up at least until Spring! I secured them with wire so I can change them out if I get bored with them: flowers

This wagon wheel wreath will be hung over my bed, but I didn’t have a chance to do that yet. I will definitely share an updated picture when it is in its new home.

What a clever idea, and so pretty too. I love the sound of you at the craft store with your big ol' hoop in tow! I also love the idea that you've wired the flowers and plants so you can switch them out. Very practical.
