Create this long lasting indoor wall wreath using stunning Hydrangeas. As late summer approaches, gardeners amongst you will notice the stunning colour change in these magnificent blooms.
They require de-heading, so this is a perfect way to enjoy these glorious blooms indoors for many months to come. Malleable whilst fresh, they will dry in position, offering a beautiful memory of summer with their subdued, vintage colour palette.
Get creative and reminisce about warm summer days spent in the company of nature!
Hydrangea Heads – approx 8 – 12 blooms spending on head size
- Attach twine to ring leaving a long end to create a fixing point
- Cut Hydrangeas to smaller, even sized pieces, depending on head size
- Bind Hydrangea heads onto straw ring making sure they are attached securely until ring is almost covered
- To finish the wreath, gently bend back the first hydrangea placements, tucking the last blooms underneath feeding the twine through and around the stems securely fattening to the wreath frame.
- Turn over the ring, and join the ends of the twine together forming a knot to create a loop for hanging
- Add bow and ribbon if desired and hang in position
Avoid hanging the design in bright sunlight, as the colours will fade very quickly
Once fully dried the wreath will be very fragile, so avoid placing it where it could get knocked or touched
This is a wonderful way to use de-headed Hydrangea blooms. Create this design as a subtle addition to your home decor or make it as a thoughtful, handcrafted gift for a friend or loved one. Be on trend with your creativity as we approach the shorter Autumn Days!
