Hydrangea Wreath

I love hydrangeas and am always excited to see them blooming in my yard and elsewhere.  While looking through a spring issue of Frontgate I came across a beautiful picture of a hydrangea door wreath.  So pretty but at $299., I could only look and admire.


However, the crafter in me was calling so softly to try making one .  .  .

I gathered the flowers and a wire form wreath .  .   .

and came up with this .  .   .

close, but not perfect. 

You might be saying what happened to the green tulips in the materials picture?  I tried them out but didn't like the bright green look and I couldn't find any deep pink tulips.   And I used fabric paint on the solid green hydrangeas to tone them down a bit. 

I love the look, but wish I had a fabulous wooden door like the one pictured to hang it on.

But this will have to do!

And here's a few of my garden hydrangeas that inspired me  .   .    .  

Oops  .  .  .  had to show my beautiful calla lily!

Have you been inspired lately?
                     Take a little time to enjoy


Happy Crafting!


  1. How pretty, Gail! I love your version. Your front entry looks so inviting with your wreath and pretty planters. I love the flowers growing in your yard. You have such a green thumb!

  2. That is absolutely beautiful! I did have a giggle at the calla lilies though, I adore them and have a coupe of huge plants that I literally prune back to nothing each year. I went looking for colours other than white because they're do beautiful and take no care at all...turns out they were introduced here and declared a weed you can't buy the plants anymore, however they're truly the most gorgeous "weed" I've ever seen.

  3. So pretty, Gail! I think it looks perfect on your door ( which by the way is a nice door!). Your garden is absolutely beautiful! I could spend all day sitting in it enjoying those lovely flowers!

  4. Your wreath is just beautiful Gail! I love the all the pink in the wreath and in your garden.

  5. The wreath is quite lovely - love the shape and the colors used. Beautiful photos of your bloomers.
