Ah, I’m back. I took a little breather last week and enjoyed a long (much needed) break after Memorial Day. I was extremely busy with a lot of exciting news coming down the pike, but I just can’t share it quite yet! …stay tuned.
I also was busy helping my best friend (who also happened to live next door to me) move into their brand new home just a couple miles down the road. As a little house warming gift, I made her a wreath for her front door using her favorite flower, blue hydrangeas.
I gathered some supplies:
- Grapevine wreath
- Fake flowers from Michaels
- Greenery spray
- Green wire
I cut off the stems and tied the flowers to the grapevine wreath using green wire. I just snipped the access off the wire with a little pair of scissors.
I just worked my way around the wreath form adding flowers until I was about 3/4 of the way around.
Next I filled in part of the gap with some greenery spray that I purchased from Michael’s in the clearance bins. Less than $1 each so I grabbed three of them.
I also purchased a roll of burlap recently and decided to construct my own little bow. I just tied it together with a little piece of twine and tied it to the wreath.
And that’s it! Some beautiful new door bling for my best friend’s new home. I thought adding little bits of green and white would really make the blue hydrangeas pop. And I’m totally loving the burlap bow.
I’m also diggin’ these flowers I found in the clearance bin at Michael’s. I got them for $1 each and they were the perfect find!
Yeah, it’s kinda sad that now I have to drive a mile or two away to see my friend now rather than just walking out the front door, but at least I’ll get a little smile when I walk up to her new home now and see this 😉

How pretty 🙂 I bet your friend was over the moon! A brilliant idea to use fake flowers too, so she can enjoy it forever 🙂
Thanks Katie! Yep, she was over the moon 😉

This is one of the prettiest wreaths I’ve seen. I think I’m going to have to give this a go.
Oh, thank you so much Helen! You’re too sweet. Good luck with yours!
Along with peonies, hydrangeas are my favorite! Thanks for showing how to make this wreath – it turned out so pretty.
Thank you Sue!
