I don’t know about you , but hydrangeas just make me think of spring! Those gorgeous big pink and blue bunches of blooms really brighten up a yard after a long gray winter. And even if you don’t have the real thing, it is easy to freshen up your front door with an easy spring hydrangea wreath!
When we lived in Michigan (for 10 too cold years), one of the best parts of spring was the blast of color from all the new flowers. Daffodils, tulips, lilacs, hyacinths, crocus. Ahhh, I love them all! Alas, those don’t grow here in Florida. But, we can enjoy the look with silk flowers!
So I’d like to share my easy spring wreath with you, because no matter what spring looks like in your neck of the woods, you can still have a colorful wreath full of spring flowers!
First are the supplies for your spring hydrangea wreath.
(This post includes some affiliate links from Amazon for your convenience. Click here to see my full disclosure policy.)
A simple foam wreath (mine is 16″).
Bunches of artificial hydrangea blooms.
Shimmery mesh ribbon to cover up the wreath base.
Wired ribbon to make the bow and hanger.
Use thumbtacks to secure the mesh to the wreath. Then simply wrap the wreath, overlapping the layers a bit so none of the white is visible.
Next use a pair of wire cutters to cut the flowers off the stems.
Then attach the stems into the wreath.
(I found it was a bit difficult to poke the stems through the mesh netting, so I used a large nail to poke through the mesh and create a starting hole in the foam wreath.)
Here is the wreath with all of the flowers and greenery attached.
Make a bow.
Use a stiff object like a book, plate, or in my case, my iPad mini to wrap the ribbon. I wrapped it around the iPad 5 times.
Slide the ribbon off.
Tie a shorter piece around the center.
Separate the individual loops and “fluff” them up so they curve instead of lay flat.
To make the streamers, fold the ribbon in half and cut a piece the length you want.
Use a long, thin nail or pin to attach the streamers to the bottom of the bow.
Then attach both to the wreath.
To decoratively cut the tails of the streamers, fold the bottom part of the ribbon in half. Cut the ribbon at an angle from the bottom corner towards the middle. When opened, it will create a decorative V-shape. *By the way, this also prevents the ribbon from fraying.
Add a hanger.
Tie a length of ribbon around the top of the wreath. Check for the length you need. Then tie the ribbon in a secure knot at the top.
(We have a peep-hole, so I always need to measure to make sure the peep-hole is not covered up by the wreath!)
I usually make 2 wreaths, one for each door, but I also have a cute little plaque of bunnies selling carrots that I have had for several years, so I only made one wreath this time.
