This Floral Macrame Hoop Wreath is GORGEOUS and looks amazing in your modern space! It’s the perfect item for tween room decor.
We are almost to the big reveal for my daughter’s black and purple tween room design, and this is one of my favorites. It really is stunning in her space, with the contrast of black macrame cord and violet peonies. It’s modern with a touch of girly, which fits my daughter’s personality perfectly! This Floral Macrame Hoop Wreath is actually really easy to make when you know your macrame loops. I’ve only included the very basic loops in this so it’s the perfect macrame tutorial for beginners.

I love that this tutorial requires so few supplies and most items come with enough product to create two hoops! You can even get one large 14-inch hoop for one wreath, then pick out a smaller one for another wreath for a really nice wall display.
By the way, this frame and R is from my daughter’s Woodland Creatures room and I just painted them black and purple. The diamond is from Walnut Hollow and I LOOOVE them, but they’re discontinuing the product so make sure you get one before they’re gone for good.
Floral Macrame Hoop Wreath Supplies
Macrame Hoop Wreath Tutorial
- First, cut out 24 pieces of cord at around 44″. You’ll be cutting off some of the length later, but we want plenty to work with.
- Get one piece of cord and wrap it around the hoop 9 times, leaving an even amount of length at both ends of the loops. Make sure it’s wrapped really tight.
- Tie a knot on each end of the wrapped cord and pull it tight.
- Next center the smaller hoop with the larger hoop, then create a DOUBLE HALF HITCH KNOT. You do this by wrapping one end of the cord around the center hoop, then wrap it around again, then pull the end of the cord through that loop you made with the cord. Repeat with the other side of the cord.Tip: This image was really helpful for me.
- Repeat step 3 on the opposite side of the hoop. Adjust as needed to make sure the smaller hoop is centered.
- You’ll repeat the process at half intervals, so your next loops will be a halfway between the first two loops, repeating at the opposite side until you have covered the hoop completely with these knots. You do it this way so your center hoop remains in place.
- When you are finished creating your macrame loops, you’ll tighten everything and make sure it’s all even, then you’ll pull all the cord to the center of the hoop and cut it off.
- Now you’ll trim it evenly in the center of the hoop, leaving about an inch on the ends.
- Now you’ll trim your flowers and hot glue them to the bottom left or right side of the hoop.
It takes a little practice to get the basic loops right, but in the end the process gets really easy. When I first started with macrame, I had to watch the loops over and over again on youtube, so make sure you watch the video above and feel free to pause, rewind and rewatch it until you get it right. It’s so much easier than doing it wrong half way through your project and having to undo the knots. Not that I know from experience 😉
Also, it’s really important that you stay consistent with your knots. If you tie it one way the first time, continue to tie it the same way. That way all your knots are facing the same direction. It will give it a much cleaner look.
I am SUPER super excited to show you the rest of the room on Monday! For now, check out all the Tween room tutorials I have up!
