These dried hydrangeas have been sitting on the bush for quite awhile to get the dark purple and green tint. I'm very lucky - the owner of the antique store I sell at has given me a ton of hydrangeas this season - my apartment is full! So full, I ran out of places to put them, so I made a wreath instead!
This wreath is SUPER SUPER simple. I had an extra grapevine wreath laying around. First, I tied some burlap around the wreath in a knot and left some excess to hang the wreath. Then, all I did was shove the stems down into the wreath in a circular pattern. The trick is to kind of shove them in in the same direction as the grapevine and try and stick them behind a secure piece of grapevine in the wreath.
If you notice that the hydrangea falls out, just keep trying to cram it in there. I finished this wreath in about 8 minutes, but if you're patient enough, you could probably try securing the stems a little bit more with hot glue. Finish off with some hairspray to help keep the flowers intact and you're done!
