Fall Hydrangea Wreath
Fall Hydrangea Wreath… start decorating your home in the spirit of autumn!
I decided to pass on the traditional fall colors this year and create a more neutral toned fall wreath. I wanted to leave out the orange, reds, and yellows to create more of a crisp and cool feel.
Our home has gone through a new transformation it went from beautiful farmhouse grays to beautiful coastal blues and in a way that inspired me to create this wreath. Here’s my philosophy about decorating… you should decorate and fill your home with things you love and what makes YOU happy.
Even if you don’t really decorate for fall (which I totally understand) you can always add a festive wreath in your home!
I am just planting a seed with some inspiration so you can start thinking about Fall and what colors you want to decorate with.
Fall Hydrangea Wreath Supplies:
- 8 White Faux Hydrangea Stems (I bought mine at the Dollar Store)
- 3 Faux Dried Leaf Spray Stems (I bought mine at JoAnn’s)
- 3 Small White Plastic Pumpkins (also bought at JoAnn’s)
- Spray Paint (I used Rust-Oleum in Satin Aqua)
- Golden Wheat Sheaves (You can purchase them on Amazon)
- 18” Wreath
- Hot Glue
- Wire Cutters
Fall Hydrangea Wreath Directions:
Step 1: Lightly spray your hydrangea stems with the color spray paint you desire most. You should test the stem and figure out how light or heavy you want to spray before you start. For mine I sprayed very lightly, I wanted the yellow that the hydrangea had already to show through. Make sure you only spray the flowers and not the leaves. Let dry for 20 minutes.
Step 2: Using wire cutters, carefully cut the stems leaving approximately a three-inch stem. Before you begin hot gluing the faux dried leaf stems, lay them down and tuck them in-between the grapevine wreath to get an idea on where you want them and how they will look. When you have your desired look, hot glue them to the wreath.
Step 3: Hot glue the pumpkins in desired area.
Step 4: After your faux hydrangeas are dry, cut the stems leaving approximately a three-inch stem. Once again before hot gluing them to the wreath, place them where you want them to go, then hot glue them in place.
Step 5: Take the wheat stems and starting on the right side, hot glue the a small bunch to the wreath. Keep gluing small bunches to the wreath like the spokes on a wheel. Keep adding wheat bundles all the way around until you have filled the wreath or you have the desire look you want.
This wreath looks so pretty in person, I hope you get a chance to make one!
