~ An Easy Hops Farmhouse Wreath for Fall ~

 This post contains affiliate links.

I've been eyeing our hops flowers, with their whimsical cone shapes, wondering how I could use them to decorate this fall. 

I decided on making a wreath for our rustic chicken coop. Nothing too tailored, but rather true to this plant's free spirit...

I started with a Natural Grapevine Wreath - 18".

I cut varying lengths of the vines with hops flowers and simply tucked the stems into the wreath. I used a few Greening Pins 1.75" to help secure the vines. I let some of the vines hang freely to give the wreath more of a romantic feel.

Because sometimes even the most rustic coop feels like dressing up. ;)

I shared the picture below of our garden gate and arbor covered with hops vines on Instagram. If you'd like to grow your own beautiful hops, you can purchase a Centennial Hops Vine - Humulus - 2.5" Pot . In the Pacific Northwest, where we live, hops grows well.

Thank you for visiting today!

  1. The wreath looks so simple and gorgeous ♥

  2. Your wreath is so pretty! I just love it! I'll have to see if hops grow well in Texas (I'm guessing, no) :)

    1. Thank you Lisa! Hope it grows there too... but we have very different climates, don't we?

  3. This is so pretty! I'm not sure hops grow in Texas but now I'm going to find out.;-)
