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.
