Faux Hydrangea Wreath with a Twist

Greetings snow bunnies and non-snow bound bloggerettes! I am so ready for spring, aren't you?! The weather here in the SF peninsula has been amazing around 75 degrees. Poifect California weather! See, this is the reason we put up with the earthquakes, insane state politics and high prices ha!

I'm sure you seen faux hydrangea wreath all around the web. I thought I'd make one...with a little twist of my own...

My twist, adding some bling to the centers

doesn't show up too well in the photos, but each center has a color matching rhinestone.

I first wrapped a 10" styrofoam wreath with purple satin ribbon (here is a view of the back)

filled it with faux hydrangea blossoms, added the rhinestones, and used a sheer puple ribbon for hanging. Love it!

I have a few more bunches, but want to mix some flowers in for something different.

Before I get to doing that, I've been laboring over another project. One that I'm beginning to regret having started. Here is a little teaser

That is only half of what I need *sigh*

Just another labor intensive project....did I mention it is very labor intensive? lol!

I'll post the finished wreath if when it's finished. ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by! It is always so lovely to read your comments!

Tina, your hydrangea wreath is beautiful! I made one several years ago on a twig wreath and I still like it. But the rhinestones in the centers add a lovely bling/touch to yours! Good job, my friend!


Cherie said...

I was just thinking that Shiela had posted with some of those same little paper roses. As for the hydrangea wreath, by far, the most beautiful I have seen.

Hi Tina, I stopped by after you left me a kind note on my post. I LOVE all your art, the china mosaics are beautiful. I, too, am enjoying the gorgeous CA weather, I am in Arnold, CA. Only in the low 60's up here but oh so wonderful. To me it is well worth the price!

Such a very pretty hydrangea wreath. Do you just glue those on to the styrofoam form?

Ellie said...

I am in love with your purple hydrangea wreath. Thanks for showing the back, as I want to make one. The bling in the center is what really sets it off. Purple is my new color, and hydrangeas have nudged roses to
2nd place in my cottage. Thanks for sharing.
