ONE little MOMMA: Fall Hydrangea Wreath Tutorial

Fall Hydrangea Wreath tutorial


I fell in love with this wreath on Pinterest months ago. It is very similar to the lavender and lime hydrangea wreath that I use for spring and I pinned it in hopes of buying or making it this fall. Well buying it was out of the question once I tracked it down on Etsy. I started looking for supplies to make it for cheaper.

I ended up being able to make it for cheaper, but not for cheap. Based on the ‘cheaper’ cost, this wreath will be on my door for every Fall until I die, but I LOVE it and am thrilled with how it turned out. Here is a little tutorial of how I made it. (Excuse the poor phone photo quality- I can’t find my zoom lens.)

Fall Hydrangea Wreath Tutorial- ONE little MOMMA

Supplies: Nine Hydrangea Stems (bought mine at Hobby Lobby for 50% off)
              18” wreath form
              1” wide ribbon
              Hot Glue
              Wire Cutters

I started by taking the heads off all of the stems and arranging them in the order I wanted.

I then hot glued each flower into place. I put some glue on the stem and shoved it down into the wreath frame for extra security.

After the flowers were in place, I cut off about 12 leaves from the leftover stems to glue behind the flowers around the inside and outside of the wreath. I tried to be random and not too perfect when I placed them.

The last piece was to tie the ribbon to the wreath. I used the ribbon as the hanger on my wreath hook and it took several attempts to get a proper bow.

Like I said, I just love how it turned out! It cost me about $40 in supplies to make it and obviously I have leftover ribbon. Do you put up wreaths year round? How do you decorate the outside of your home for Fall?
