Dried Hydrangea Wreath

Create a long lasting indoor wall wreath using stunning Hydrangea flowers. 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.

Ingredients

  • Hydrangea Blooms (8-12) 
  • Straw Ring 
  • Twine 
  • Scissors

Method

  1. Attach the twine or wire to straw base ring leaving a long end to create a fixing point. You can use any type of base such as wire frame, vine, straw and so on.
  2. Cut the Hydrangea heads into smaller, even sized pieces. This can vary depending on the size of the Hydrangeas you are using.
  3. Bind the Hydrangea heads onto ring making sure they are attached securely until ring is almost covered
  4. 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.
  5. Carefully turn the wreath onto the back and join the ends of the twine together forming a knot to create a loop for hanging.
  6. Add bow and ribbon if desired and hang in position.

Top Tips

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
