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 focus!
I love making wreaths for the different holidays, and of course Christmas is my favorite holiday to decorate for. 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 went a little crazy with it last season. This DIY Christmas buffalo check hoop wreath will fit in great with the rest of my decor!

DIY Christmas Buffalo Check Hoop Wreath
Things you’ll need to get started:
- 14″ emboidery hoop (or size of your choice)
- Buffalo check fabric (I used this napkin from Hobby Lobby
- Siser EasyWeed glitter HTV in white
- Silhouette Cameo 3
- weeding tool
- Hand Lettered Merry and Bright cut file
- Iron or Heat Press
- Winter branches (mine are these from Michaels)
- Red ribbon of choice (I used organza because I had some on hand)
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Wire cutters
First, start by ironing out the buffalo check fabric (or napkin in my case) to get a smooth surface.
Using the Silhouette, cut Merry & Bright onto 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 to hang the wreath by with the organza ribbon. To do this, cut a length of ribbon and loop it around the outer 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 excess fabric away.
Finish it off by placing a bow in the center of the pine branches (optional) and hang up on your door!
I think this Christmas buffalo check hoop wreath just may be my favorite one yet! What do you think?
