As I was walking the gardens this week, I noticed my endless summer hydrangeas flowers have that gorgeous fall vintage color.

And you know what that means right?

It means they are perfect for drying!

Now you can dry them ahead of time using THIS easy method.

But it’s even easier to dry them directly on the wreath.

Here’s how to do it!

If you are anything like me, I have quite a few wreaths hanging around that have seen better days.

Instead of tossing them, repurpose them!

This grapevine wreath has been on my hit list for a while.

The fall berries are totally faded, so it doesn’t look good in my decor anymore.

But the grapevine wreath is in PERFECT condition!

And what I love about using a grapevine wreath for this DIY is you can tuck the stems directly into the grapevine without using floral wire. #winning

So it’s totally worth taking off all the old stuff and tucking in flowers from the garden.

Since this wreath is made with hydrangeas, I’m cutting flowers from my endless summer hydrangea.

If you don’t have hydrangeas in your yard, ask a friend or a neighbor if you can cut some from theirs and make wreaths together.

This is such a fun project to do and looks so gorgeous when it’s done.

And the best part?

Grab some pruners and let's cut some flowers to make this hydrangea wreath using items you have at home.
Prep Time20 mins
Active Time25 mins
Total Time45 mins
Yield: 1 wreath

Equipment

  • Pruners
  • Container to Hold Fresh Cut Flowers

Materials

  • 1 Set Pruners
  • 10-20 Fresh Cut Hydrangea Flowers
  • 1 Bucket, Basket, or Other Container
  • 1 Grapevine Wreath or Other Wreath Form
  • 1 Floral Wire and Cutters (optional) (You only need floral wire and cutters if you use a wreath form that will not hold the blooms on its own)

Instructions

  • Find an old grapevine wreath.
  • Clean up the wreath by removing the old decor.
  • Using sharp pruners, cut vintage-looking hydrangea flowers about 8-10" long. Make sure the blooms have a papery feel to them as these will dry better on the wreath.
  • Collect blooms in a basket or other container. If you are not making the wreath right away, drop the cut hydrangea flowers immediately in water and keep them there until you are ready to make the wreath.
  • Remove all of the leaves from the stem.
  • Cut the stems down to about 4-6" so it's short enough to stick into the grapevine wreath but long enough to be secure and not stick out.
  • Add hydrangea flowers working left to right, until you fill the entire wreath.
  • Hang when finished.

Notes

Feel free to fill only half the wreath if you like that look.

Could I Make a Hydrangea Wreath Using Faux Flowers?
