AUTUMN HYDRANGEA WREATH


I think it's officially time to say: It's Fall Y'all! For those of you who have been following along on Instagram, you know I've been decorating our place for Fall and DIYing a lot of my decorations this year. I don't know about you, but as beautiful as the natural colors are outside as the leaves begin to change, I'm not a huge fan of the autumn color palette...at least not all over my home so I really try to pick and choose where I use color and keep the rest simple and neutral (hello white pumpkins!!). A lot of you loved the fall colored hydrangea wreath I posted last week so here is an easy to follow step-by-step guide to make your own!! I'd love to see your final results!!

What you'll need:

{I was able to get everything for this project at Michaels}

  • Grapevine wreath: I used the 18" size but they have a variety of sizes if you want to change it up!

  • Faux hydrangeas: I used the yellow, cream, brown single stem hydrangeas (4 of each color) as well as 1 bundle of the maroon hydrangeas; if you don't care for hydrangeas, Michaels had a ton of beautiful faux flowers in the same color palette

  • Hot glue gun and extra glue sticks

  • Wire cutters

  • 1" ribbon of your choice {I used the black and white vertical stripe because I liked the contrast but it's totally up to you!}

How To:

  1. Plug in your hot glue gun to get it warm. Make sure to put something under it because they do drip as they get hot.

  2. Cut all of your faux hydrangeas down with the wire cutters. I found that leaving some stem is really helpful when arranging and attaching the flowers to the grapevine wreath.

  3. Lay out your wreath and begin arranging your flowers. This will help you figure out spacing and will help you ensure that you have enough flowers before you start gluing. (I actually had to make a second trip because I was 3 short lol)

  4. Once you have your wreath arranged how you like, glue the stems into place. Let the glue harden and cool before the final step.

  5. Thread your ribbon through the top side of the wreath. Before cutting the ribbon, make sure you leave yourself plenty of extra to work with to tie a bow and allow height adjustments once you hang it on the door! You can always cut the ribbon shorter but you can't add it back once it's cut! (I hung ours with one of the clear plastic Scotch Command hooks)

That's it! So easy!! I also have an all red poinsettia version of this wreath that I made a few years ago and still love! Happy crafting y'all!
