Brighten up your front door for the holidays with this easy to make DIY Christmas Buffalo Check Hoop Wreath that features a glittery Merry and Bright hand lettered quote.
I love making wreaths for different holidays, and of course, Christmas is my favorite holiday to decorate. I made my first hoop wreath for Fall and decided I wanted to make another version for the Christmas season. Red buffalo check is still very popular this season, which is great because I may have gone a little crazy with it last season. This DIY Christmas buffalo check hoop wreath will fit in great with the rest of my decor!

How to Make a Buffalo Check Hoop Wreath for Christmas
Supplies needed for buffalo check Christmas wreath
- 14″ emboidery hoop (or size of your choice)
- Buffalo check fabric (I used a napkin from Hobby Lobby)
- Siser EasyWeed glitter HTV in white
- Cricut Maker or another machine
- Weeding Tools
- Hand Lettered Merry and Bright cut file
- Iron or Heat Press
- Winter branches
- Red ribbon of choice (I used organza because I had some on hand)
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Wire cutters
Steps to Make an Embroidery Hoop Wreath
First, start by ironing out the buffalo check fabric (or napkin in my case) to get a smooth surface. Using the Cricut, cut Merry & Bright out on the glitter HTV. I personally prefer using the Siser EasyWeed brand because it is incredibly easy to weed (as the name suggests!).
Using an iron, or a heat press, press the HTV onto the center of the buffalo check fabric. Slowly peel the transfer backing away from the vinyl, flip the fabric over and press with the iron again to make sure the HTV is fully adhered.
Next, make a loop for hanging the wreath with ribbon. To do this, cut a length of ribbon and loop it around the outer embroidery hoop. Glue the ends together to create a loop. Then place the buffalo check fabric in the embroidery hoop and pull tight.
Turn the buffalo check hoop wreath over and cut the excess fabric away. Finish it off by placing a bow in the center of the pine branches (optional) and hang up on your door!
If you have a light-colored front door like mine, the red buffalo check really pops! I think a black and white buffalo check would also look so nice.
I think this Christmas buffalo check hoop wreath just may be my favorite one yet! What do you think?
