Autumn Wreaths With Dried Hydrangea Flowers

5 Materials
15 Minutes

When I harvested the Hydrangeas for these Autumn wreaths, I tried to pick blooms which were roughly the same size although, separating the larger blooms a little, to make them smaller would also work.

When cutting the dried blooms, make sure to leave about 10cm to 15cm of the stems attached because these are what we will use to tie the Hydrangea blooms to the straw wreath.

Attach florist's wire

First, wrap the florist wire around the straw wreath and twist the ends together to secure it in place.

Tie Hydrangea blooms to wreath

Collect a small bundle of Hydrangea flowers and start tying them to the straw wreath. I cover the whole of the wreath with one bundle.

Work you way around the wreath

Continue to cover the straw wreath working around the circle, overlapping the flowers slightly until the wreath is completely covered.

Add some ribbon

Add some ribbon for hanging and your Autumn Wreath is finished!


I used contrasting ribbons to decorate the Hydrangea wreath and tied it to my front door.

    Great idea! Wondering-Do the dried flowers fall apart when hanging or is there a method to ensuring limited drop off.
