I almost forgot to share the pink hydrangea wreath that I made for the front door to finish out the summer. You could also make this hydrangea wreath in fall colors so you could use it for a couple more months.
It was extremely thrifty to make since I already had the hydrangeas from an old project and I used a Dollar Store vine wreath as a base. I love it when you can reuse part of an old project. The thrift stores I frequent often have hydrangea stems for sale, so if you are starting from scratch check your thrifty sources first.
First cut the flowers off the hydrangea stem leaving a short section of stem and remove the leaves. I saved the leaves for a future project.
Then insert the short hydrangea stems into the wreath and hot glue them into place as you work your way around the wreath.
Once you are happy with the fullness of the wreath or run out of flowers like I did, add a nice big bow. In the interest of saving time I bought a bow from Hobby Lobby but Ann from On Sutton Place has an excellent tutorial here on tying the perfect bow.
Since it is already August this pink wreath won’t be hanging around for long but it will finish out this Georgia summer.
