To create this hydrangea wreath, I first had to collect my supplies from my car …
because, somewhere along the line, my car has become yet another space where I store craft supplies. And Etsy shop supplies …
and the simple act of running out the car had me longing for Spring.
Because in the Spring, running out to the car doesn’t require a change of footwear. Or donning a puffy coat. In the Spring, I can just throw open the front door and march down those front steps as is …
and when I say as is, I mean clothed.
But yesterday morning there was a fresh coat of snow on the ground. And a 20 degree chill in the air. And boots and a puffy coat were mandatory for the run outside to the car to gather my hydrangea wreath-making supplies …
I found the faux hydrangeas, twig wreath form, and green floral wire at Michaels.
I removed the leaves and cut the stems 1 1/2 inches in length from the bloom.
Then I simply worked the stem into the twig wreath. It held pretty tight, so I didn’t bother with glue. The up side is I can easily swap out different color hydrangeas to complement the different seasons of the year …
I just moved around the wreath, adding hydrangeas in alternating colors. I used 9 total.
I toyed with adding a border of leaves around the edge, but in the end preferred this clean look.
The finishing touch was a green bow. I actually attached the bow to the window pane and the door muntins using Scotch restickable dots for mounting.
Now if the snow would just melt and the temperatures would warm up so the grass can grow as green as my new Spring wreath!
