I got the idea from Daisy Mae Belle’s own pretty version!
Make a fall hydrangea wreath in 5 minutes!
Supplies I used:
wreath of choice: grapevine / styrofoam / wire form
fall hydrangea blooms (HERE are some faux)
hot glue gun and glue sticks may help
string or florist’s wire may help
1. Start with a wreath of choice as your base.
I used a twiggy wreath, however you could use: grapevine / styrofoam / wire form
2. Harvest hydrangea cuttings during fall.
- The key to these hydrangea petals not wilting is to wait until they are slightly crispy feeling before cutting. This ensures they will dry on your wreath completely without wilting.

3. Cut hydrangea stems on an angle just under the flowers, leaving enough stem to work with.
- The longer stems to start with are better. You can clip as you go if you need them shorter.
- The angle of the stem helps insert them to your wreath of choosing.
4. One at a time, insert or attach the stems into or onto the wreath.
- If your wreath isn’t textured like mine, you could use string, florist’s wire or hot glue to attach the stems to the wreath base.
- If using glue, I’d suggest to bypass the stems, and just glue the flowers.
5. Keep adding hydrangea cuttings until it is full.
The finished hydrangea wreath!
And here is the full and beautiful hydrangea wreath! Isn’t it gorgeous? In under 10 minutes, this beauty was ready to hang!
I added a piece of twine to hang the wreath from this door handle, however a coordinating ribbon or even light rope could work too.
And here is the same wreath hanging outdoors on my patio.
This hydrangea wreath would look equally gorgeous hanging under cover on a front door! Or headboard. Or set on a fireplace mantel. It really looks gorgeous anywhere!
What colours are your hydrangeas this fall? Where would you hang yours?

WOW ! Love this wreath!
Beautiful. Your hydrangea colours are gorgeous!
Love it. Guess you have decided to do the month blog. Congrats to you. Have a great day.
so, so pretty!!!!
Great idea. If you need a cheap and easy frame to create your wreath as well, I would suggest using a coat hanger. It works great and everyone has one of those around.
I have several hydrangea bushes and this project is perfect for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful! Now to find a friend with a hydrangea bush : )
I absolutely love it! I really need some hydrangea bushes in my yard….
Love it. This is on my ‘gotta do’ list. I’ve already cut my hydrangea, so now, just to get some of it on a wreath. THANKS for the push in that direction.
That wreath is beautiful! Thank you for the idea!
Love the colours and the wreath..good job.
Your hydrangea projects are gorgeous! Oh how I wish I could grow them here, but it’s too hot and the soil isn’t right. I’ll enjoy yours for now. Thanks for hosting Donna.
how do u dry them in water i hung mine upside down but they are all ariveled up and not fluffy???? 🙁
Beautiful wreath..I was told that if you leave them inside they keep their color and if outside they go brown..Have a great weekend..
I am heading out to my yard tomorrow morning to gather up the last of my Hydrangeas. What you said about not getting caught up in blogging? I am all about being way too caught up in “producing” as in for other people! I have so neglected the time to make anything for myself, just because it brings me joy. Thank you so much for this reminder. I am copying and printing this to put right above my computer. I tell you, those words were inspired!
Thanks so much for showing my hydrangea wreath! It is the easiest wreath you will ever make! And, quite possibly one of the prettiest! Life to the full, Melissa
