How to make a wreath using hydrangeas is one of the more simple wreaths to make for fall. I started by snipping the dried hydrangeas off of our bushes in our back yard. If you do not have your own hydrangea bushes, you can most likely find a friend who does or you can purchases some and dry them yourself. There are also pretty faux hydrangea stems sold at most craft stores but they can be pricey. I started by clipping off the hydrangeas that were dried but not dead from the bush.

I picked up an inexpensive grapevine wreath and hot glued the flowers to the wreath. I also used craft wire for the ones that had a long enough stem.

That’s it! It took five minutes and I love how it looks hanging on our hutch in our dining room.

Do you have a hutch that you could add a wreath to the front? It’s a quick and easy way to add character and a seasonal aspect to a space. Our hydrangea brushes are a mix of blues, pinks and greens so this wreath happens to be a mix of colors. I think I may add a basket full of dried hydrangeas to our dining room as well. My friend Kim, at Sand and Sisal has a great tutorial on how to dry hydrangeas if you are unsure of how to do that. Looking for more fall inspiration, check out our Fall Home Tour.

    Ahhh..why can’t my hydrangeas dry like that and look so beautiful. I have som egreen and some purple, but when I tried drying them using several tips I found on others bloggers sites, they just shriveled up and browned on the edges…any tips on drying them so they look great like yours???? Thanks

    1. I leave mine on the bush and don’t snip them until they are dried to my liking. For me, that is easier then bringing them in the house. 🙂

  2. Where did you find your hutch? Beautiful!

    1. The hutch was actually given to me by grandmother. It use to be a light oak colored stain until I painted it white. 🙂
