I love hydrangeas!  And for some reason I have had them on the brain.  So I decided I wanted to do a quick wreath with some this weekend.  Here is what I came up with – the rest of the post is how I got there!

Full lush faux hydrangea stems are normally pretty pricy.  Never fear – I just picked up a couple cheap less fluffy stems at the dollar store and cut them apart with some wire trimmers.

Next I took a couple of them and bunched them together to get that big full look that I love.  Isn’t that a better?!?

Then I added in a little bit of the greenery to give it some more texture and covered a cardboard initial with a little moss!  I love the way it came out!

It makes me smile!  Ah – what I wouldn’t give for a big ole bush of these outside my door!

One more and then I will stop I promise!

So what about you – is there a flower you would just love to have at your house?  Or perhaps you are lucky and you already have that flower in your garden? I wanna know!

I adore hydrangeas. For whatever reason though I can NOT keep them alive. :( So I gave up on the hydrangea shrub and went with the hydrangea tree. LOVE it!! Low maintenance and beautiful blooms in the spring. :) I love your wreath!

Love your wreath. The hydrangeas are lovely, the colours of the blue and green looks great against your door.

I love hydrangeas too! I used them for my wedding bouquet :) Your wreath is beautiful. I have been scouring the internet looking for just the right wreath to make for my front door and this one is perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your trick on the dollar store flowers too. Popped over from A2Z and I will definitely be back!
