What You'll Need Materials Greenery Hot glue gun Ribbon or seam binding Embroidery hoop Instructions Cut sprigs of greenery (we used spruce, cedar, and juniper) and hot glue around an embroidery hoop. Repeat to cover the front and back of the rings, and adhere smaller pieces to the inside of the hoops as needed. Loop a length of ribbon or seam binding around each wreath, and hang.
