Hydrangea Wreath

 Last week Heidi from My Sweet Cottage shared her handmade wreath here. The pictures of the wreath came with a tutorial and to my delight I found out I had the necessities in my own garden (grape branches and hydrangea). I cut the branches the same day, formed a wreath, bound the branches with thread to keep them in the shape I wanted and hung it to dry for a couple of days.

Today I cut hydrangea flowers from different bushes and inserted them between the branches.After that I bound everything together with binding wire. That was all it took. I really like the result. 

 

 

And take a look at our new little cat friend James. Only nine weeks old.

  3. Very pretty! Do you need to spray them with anything to preserve the wreath?

    1. In the tutorial that I followed the flowers were sprayed with hairspray, so I followed those instructions. Seems to work.

  10. Ambitious of you to cut your own grapevine. I haven't done that but I don't have grapevines to harvest from anyway. It turned out so pretty and I'm glad you tried it and shared with us this week. #HomeMattersParty

    1. Cutting the grapevine had to be done anyway. It was proliferating all over the garden :-D. I'm not that much of a gardener.
