A Farmhouse Fall Hydrangea Wreath (DIY) ...

I considered making a cute acorn wreath for our front door this fall. But, there's something about the fullness and faded charm of a hydrangea wreath that I couldn't pass up! In case you're interested in making one, you only need three things...

1. Dried hydrangeas (see the best ways to dry them here!)
2. A straw wreath form 
3. Greenery pins 

Using your greenery pins, pin the hydrangea stems - one at a time - onto your straw wreath form. Continue until you have the desired fullness and/or until the straw wreath form is no longer visible.

This is the quickest and easiest wreath I've made. I also think it may be the prettiest. 

It costs about $8 to make (for the wreath form and pins). Can you imagine what you'd pay for a large wreath like this at a florist or gift shop?!

Last year, I also made a hydrangea wreath, but added antlers. See it here.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are having a wonderful day...

  1. Your wreath is lovely.

    I wish my hydrangeas would bloom so I could dry them.

  2. A really pretty wreath! It would definitely cost around $100 in a store!

    1. Thank you so much. I think it might... Hope your weekend is going well!

  3. I love your blog so much! What great projects and your photography is so pretty. :)

    Have a great day friend!

  4. Doesn't get any prettier than that!

    1. Thank you for your kind words! Have a blessed Sunday.

  5. You have the most gorgeous colors in your hydrangea wreath, Julie! Love those pretty combinations for fall.

  6. Love this wreath and I think you have inspired me to try one!

  7. That is such a pretty wreath! It's even better that you were able to make it yourself. I rarely place anything on my front door since I have leaded glass on mine and I hate to cover it up.

  8. Love your blog so much. Would love to know where you got that home sweet home banner.

    1. Thanks so much! I found the home sweet home sign at the Farm Chicks Show last year. I wish I could remember the vendor... I've tried to find them with no luck. Sorry! The material is similar to drop cloth... you could always try to make one!

  9. Home sweet FarmStead Home indeed, and so welcoming a new season of beauty with the beautiful door wreath.

    See you soon
