I have to say that hydrangeas are one of my top favorite flowers. They’re beautiful when bloomed and when cut, they can last all summer and dry beautifully to last through the winter.
I have a huge row of hydrangeas so I thought why not make a wreath out of them. The hydrangeas in the front yard produced beautiful pink and purple blooms this year and I could not pass up making a wreath out of them.
Here are the materials needed:
Wreath (wire wreath base)
Fine gauge wire
Twine or ribbon
Raffia (if you want a bow)
Here is how I made my hydrangea wreath. First, I tied a simple knot using twine to hang.
Next, cut or buy two to three pounds of hydrangeas depending on the size of the wreath.
Then, lay out all the cut hydrangeas and see how you would like the layout to look. For example, I chose to mix the pink and purple in a pattern so it looks somewhat more balanced.
Also I decided to use paper raffia to make a bow. I made three bows & tied them together as one whole bow, this gave it a more dramatic look.
I used floral wire to affix the hydrangeas to the wire wreath. Also, I cut some of the excess petals and had to tweak it a bit to make it look just right.
Here it is! What do you think?
