Today I am sharing how I make an easy hydrangea wreath! Our house is surrounded with Annabelle hydrangeas and Incrediball hydrangeas, and this wreath was made with them. I dry lots of hydrangeas…check out this post on my tips and tricks. You could easily make one from Limelight hydrangeas (I made one last year)..the same technique applies.
You start with a grapevine wreath. I usually pick my wreaths up at thrift stores…they may have flowers and fruit glued on them, but I take a hair dryer on low setting, and melt the glue to take all of that off. Easy and economical! We have tons of grapevine growing on our silo, if anyone wants to come and make their own! haha Maybe one of these days, I will tackle that project!
I sat on my couch in the living room and made this wreath…it only took me about 10 minutes…seriously!
You start by taking a dried hydrangea and cutting the stem to about 3 inches long. I then just stuck it in the wreath! If your wreath is very tightly wound, you can open up the grapevine to ease the stem in easier with your other hand.
Keep adding blooms all around the wreath until they meet. Stand back every once and awhile to have a look and make sure you are liking the shape.
When the wreath is finished, turn it over and see if you have any stems that need to be tucked in.
I think the wreath looked fine with just a ring of hydrangeas around it, but to make it fuller, I added a few more flowers here and there where there was more grapevine wreath showing.
That’s it!! It couldn’t be more easy! I take hair spray and give it a spray to help preserve it. I find the hydrangeas I dried this year are a little more pliable and easy to work with….although, I have baskets of hydrangeas I save from year to year, to use in decor.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you give this easy wreath making method a try! If you do make one, tag me on Instagram or Facebook I would love to see!
Good morning: You make it look so simple.!!! Amazing. Love Mom! xoxo
Thanks Mom! It’s so easy! Xoxo
I love your tips on drying hydrangeas. Mine are still drying it seems they are taking a long time. I’m going to try making a wreath do I need to have them completely dried to start?
Thanks Julis! I think you could make your wreath if the hydrangeas weren’t completely dry! They will continue to dry on the wreath! As long as the leaves are somewhat crunchy you should be good! Good luck! 💗
Looks easy. I will definitely try it. I did cut some hydrangeas and put them in hot tap water ad they dried nicely. Thanks for the tip.
Oh I’m so glad Marg! It’s so easy!!! XO
Very pretty. I’ll place an order! I was out cutting some of my hydrangeas and after I brought them in a HUGE spider descended onto the island!! You know me and spiders!!!! So the rest of my hydrangeas will stay in their natural habitat!
Oh no!!! Well you will have to come here and make a wreath 💗
This wreath is beautiful!!! I have so many hydrangea blooms this year, I am totally making one of these!!!
You are so talented, my friend!!!
Thank you Emily! Definitely make a wreath!!! Can’t wait to see it!!!💗💗
