Hydrangea Wreath

Posted by on Jun 8, 2014 in wreaths | 7 comments

So my friend Julie called the other day needing a wreath for her front door.

She was having a party the very next day and realized that her door was BARE!

I was home with a sick child, but just happened to have all of the supplies I needed to whip a wreath together…

…because friends don’t let friends host parties…

…with bare doors! 🙂

Make sure to save the leaves from the hydrangeas.

You will use them next!

Fill in around the hydrangea with the leaves.

When you have everything where you want it, you can go back and add hot glue.

And deliver the wreath to your friends front door literally minutes before her guests arrive!

Life to the full!

  1. You always make it sound and look so easy whatever you do. Very pretty, love colors of stems you used. Do you like the oval wreaths better than round or does it depend on what look you’re going for? What ever, you are great at the wreaths and so many other projects. Happy week.Hope your daughter gets better, sorry to hear she’s sick.

  2. So nice of you to “whip up a wreath” for a dear friend. I love it – it says simply beautiful! They say less is more — and it is so pretty!

  3. Very pretty, Melissa! Love how you tucked the ferns in and how the grapevine still shows.

  4. Very pretty. I really love hydrangeas and they look great on the wreath. You are so very talented and how nice of you to make one for your friend. Can we be friend?? 🙂

  5. So pretty. You really are talented.

  6. Melissa this came our really great and I love the oval grapevine. Now when I go look for one of course, they won’t have any, LOL. You’re right friends never let friends down.

  7. Okay – I see the title: “How to make a summer wreath” and I think, “duh.” But once again, you have that certain flair that makes the obvious turn into something special. Not only is the wreath charming and classic looking, but the door is . . . dare I say . . . a-“door”-able.

    Lucky friend.
