It’s not every day you see a wreath tutorial on my blog. I have a few wreaths that I simply adore such as my Simple Felt Wreath and my Yarn and Berries Wreath, but if I am being perfectly honest, there are times when I have no wreath on my front door. It’s true. So when I was challenged to create a Christmas wreath as part of a fun blog series, I jumped at the chance to create a new wreath for my front door! I have a wreath that goes on my front door every year, but, it is old. I think we made it abut 10 years ago (gasp!). To say that it is dated is a bit of an understatement. So I am excited to
put away throw away my dusty dated wreath this year and put up my new, beautiful Hydrangea Christmas Wreath!
To create this Hydrangea Christmas Wreath, you will need:
(affiliate links included)
- 18″ Styrofoam FloraCraft Wreath Form
- Burlap Ribbon (Tan and Cream)
- 3 Red Hydrangeas
- 1 stem of Accent Foliage (mine is a burlap, glittery, leaves…they are so fun and festive!)
- Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
First you will secure the end of your cream burlap ribbon to your wreath form using a low temp hot glue gun, and then wrap the burlap ribbon around the wreath form until it is fully covered. Secure the end in place with hot glue.
Create a bow using the tan burlap ribbon. I created a double bow by simple laying my ribbon down and folding it back and forth over each other until I had enough ribbon for a double bow. Then I secured it in place with jute.
Next I cut another piece of tan burlap and tied it onto the back of my bow to create ribbons hanging down.
And then I hot glued the bow in place on my wreath!
Then I glued my foliage in place.
And finally, I hot glued my hydrangea in place!
I love love love how my new Hydrangea Christmas Wreath turned out! I think it is so fun and so cute and way better then my old one that we will never speak of ever again!
