DIY: hydrangea wreath

Well, well, well. We meet again, lovelies. Let's talk wreaths this morning. We do love a good wreath around here. After all, they are like jewelry for your door. Who doesn't adore a beautiful statement piece? Once the gold, glammy pinecone wreath came down, I knew another stunner was in order. Enter Pinterest inspiration. Totally swoon worthy. It was love at first sight. 
Seriously, how gorgeous is that wreath? And that door? I die. Makes me want to paint my door black right this instant! Anyhow, after falling head over heels, I was determined to recreate a similar look for my own front door! 
Here is how you can make one for yourself! Be forewarned, it's difficult y'all. There are 3 whole steps! Think you can manage? 

Supplies:
Styrofoam wreath form (18 in.)
15 Large silk hydrangeas (removed from the stem)
Grosgrain ribbon
Glue gun

Step 1:
After removing the hydrangeas from the stems, begin hot gluing them around the wreath form. I used 10 hydrangeas in all for the front side of the wreath. 

 Step 2:
After the front side of the wreath was complete I noticed the sides were a bit bare. I found the best way to solve this issue was to cut the remaining 5 hydrangeas in half and glue. Viola! Problem solved. 
 Step 3:
Attach the grosgrain ribbon to the back of your wreath, hang on your door and enjoy! It doesn't get much easier than that, folks!  
So, what do you think of the new door bling? We sure hope you all take a swing at it and send pictures our way! We love seeing what you all are up to! Have a fabulous day dears! Love, L+L

  15. I'm so glad you're back and getting settled in your new home. I love the wreath. We have many hydrangea bushes around our house. The girls and I love to pick them and bring them inside. The idea of a silk hydrangea wreath is just beautiful!
