I love a cute DIY that's easy, inexpensive and quick to make.

I was kinda stuck on what to do for Ellie's party backdrop. I was going to do with a floral banner I purchased earlier, but the colors didn't end up going with her party dress, so I had to go with something else. I also had an idea to frame a big bunny print, but I didn't purchase one in time to print, and had to put that idea aside too.

So Saturday afternoon (the day before the party) I was on pinterest hoping inspiration would pop out, and it DID! I saw some adorable simple wreaths wrapped with greenery that I thought was SO pretty. I remembered I had these embroidery hoops stored (I originally was going to do something else with them) and thought I could use flowers instead of the greenery to go with the floral idea for the party.

This little project was actually really easy. I went to our local dollar store, and got some flower bunches I liked in a few different colours. I ended up using white, pinks, and yellow.

 I popped the flower part off the stems and put them all aside.

Then I placed the hoops on our table to get a good look at how many I was working with. I started just placing the flowers in the hoops to get a good mix. I mostly placed them on one side (either left or right side of the hoop) but I think it would be really pretty to have them all over for a more dramatic look. Just make sure the tops of the hoops are placed in the right direction.

And that's it! I used my glue gun and glued them all together onto the hoop. Pretty much the easiest DIY ever.

 I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and I decided I'll use them in the girls rooms when we do their little room make-over this summer.

Doesn't this make an adorable spring-y floral backdrop?

I'm also hoping I get a chance to do some for the holidays coming up - I'm thinking all white or red to make a really pretty statement!

Hope this helps if you're looking for a fun backdrop to an event, or just to spruce up some walls in your home.
