Hydrangea Wreath

Did you cut all your hydrangea blooms last month? Do you have a wreath frame or some grapevine sticks? Do you have a glue gun and 10 minutes to make a pretty fall wreath?

I did!

Let's back up...After yoga last week we were walking home past a flower shop.  In their window was a pretty wreath made of dried hydrangea blossoms. My mind immediately went to work!

I had dried hydrangea blossoms and I even had a wreath frame I picked up years ago from a garage sale.  I don't know why I never put the two together before now, but after seeing the wreath in the window I knew I was going to make that wreath!

A little glue and a couple days later, I did.

Now, I'm not going to insult your intelligence, this is obviously a really easy project.  If you're not starting with a wreath frame you can make one from some grapevine sticks.

Amazon also has wreath frames quite cheap.

The best way to dry hydrangeas is to pick them in early Fall and put them in a vase with no water. This will keep them from turning brown.

For symmetry's sake, It's a good idea to lay your blossoms on the wreath before you glue them.

If you had a small wreath frame you could do this and use it as a candle ring.  A couple of those on the table for Thanksgiving would look so pretty!
