DIY ~ Free Fall Wreath Using Hydrangeas!

30 Minutes
Bring those blossoms that are drying on the bush inside and enjoy them all winter long by making yourself a fall hydrangea wreath.
If you already had an old grapevine wreath lying around, like me, it will cost you nothing but about half an hour of your time!
Use Limelight Hydrangeas in a Fall wreath!
Our Limelight Hydrangea had taken on its fall rosy glow and needed a good trimming.

I cut the branches back, stripped the leaves and left about 3 or 4 inches of stem on each one.Just stick the stems into the wreath carefully so they don’t break off.
Insert the ends into the grapevine wreath.
Then add some fall leaves instead of a ribbon, hang and enjoy!

The blossoms will finish drying and you will have a pretty wreath to enjoy, inside or out!

    Did you spray the blossoms to keep them from dropping their petals? I'm surprised you could make your beautiful wreath last without applying some sort of fixative? I'm sure I would have flowers all over the floor and nothing left on the blossom once I poked it into the wreath... :-(

    I have a second year Limelight, and added the sister plant Vanilla Strawberry this year. They are both gorgeous...although the VS is small yet this season. Can't wait until next year!
