Hydrangea & Antler Wreath...

Hi there!

If you've stopped by recently, you may know that I've been on a bit of a hydrangea-drying kick. You can see more about that here.

So now, the fun part… how to use all those gorgeous dried hydrangeas! 

I just made this hydrangea and antler fall wreath for our door! I love its fullness.


Not counting the antlers, it cost about $8 for the straw wreath and greenery pins! At a florist, this would cost at least $60, easy.

And it couldn't be simpler to make! Just use greenery (or U) pins from the craft store to pin your dried flowers (the stems) into a straw wreath form. It's fun and fast!

I needed a few more hydrangeas and my neighbor kindly said of her hydrangea plants, "Oh honey, take whatever you want." (What a dream-maker! ;) I'll make her one too!


More fall decorating coming soon!

I want to thank Cozy Little HouseFishtail CottageThe Shabby Nest and Tater Tots & Jello for including Little Farmstead on their blogs! I hope you'll visit these creative blogs...

Have a wonderful day!
