How to Easily Make a Hydrangea WreathHow to Easily Make a Beautiful Hydrangea Wreath

Hints of Autumn are every where. In our garden some of the fall flowers are beginning to form buds. The Hydrangea bush which provided us glorious blooms throughout summer is now showing signs of transition from summer to fall. Several of the blooms have dried on the bush. This is the perfect time to collect Hydrangeas to easily make a stunning wreath.

Bringing Hydrangeas in as Decor

Not all blooms on the Hydrangea bush are candidates for the wreath. You’ll know if they are when:

  • Their color has changed
  • Their texture feels like paper

The first thing you do is to collect enough blooms to encircle your wreath form. If you don’t have enough for a large wire form, you can also make a lovely wreath with a smaller form. Remove all leaves and trim the stem to 3 to 4 inches. (reserve the cut stem)

The material you'll need to make a Hydrangea wreathThe material you’ll need to create a Hydrangea wreath include: wire wreath form, floral wire – 26 guage, wire cutters. 

Making a Hydrangea Wreath Attach the Hydrangea along the center of the wire form; securely wrap the wire around the form and stem three times; wrap the wire one more time ending a little bit below the attached stem. (as pictured above) Continue to add Hydrangea blooms around the form securing firmly. When completely around, cut the wire and wrap several times securely around the form to close. Lift the wreath form. If any of the blooms are not secure enough, wrap more wire around the stem.
