Hanging Floral Hoops - A Tutorial With Alaska Knit Nat

Last Saturday we had the chance to get together with a few talented ladies for a fun lesson on how to make these fabulous hanging floral hoops.  Natasha from Alaska Knit Nat taught us all about this fun technique and Anne-Marie Moran was gracious enough to snap photos of the entire experience so that we can share it with all of you!  I love a reason to get together, learn something new and curate new relationships with fellow entrepreneurs.  We spent the afternoon learning all about how to make these sweet and whimsical hanging floral hoops, sipped coffee, did a whole lot of chit chatting and swapped many pieces of creative ideas amongst each other.

So what exactly, you may ask, would one use these fun creations for?  Well, I can think of about 100 uses!  If you are a DIY bride, these would be a fantastic way to dress up your ceremony or reception space.  You can easily hang these from a wedding arch, tent cross wires or gently tack them to a ceiling.  If you are hosting a bridal shower, baby shower or any wedding related gathering, I think these would be a wonderful way to surprise guests with unexpected and simple decor to dress up your home or space!  I know that I'll be hanging my floral hoop in our studio downtown for a few weeks, as the greens will last and I can replace the flowers with fresh if I like to give it a longer life.
