I love hydrangeas and am always excited to see them blooming in my yard and elsewhere. While looking through a spring issue of Frontgate I came across a beautiful picture of a hydrangea door wreath. So pretty but at $299., I could only look and admire.
However, the crafter in me was calling so softly to try making one . . .
I gathered the flowers and a wire form wreath . . .
and came up with this . . .
close, but not perfect.
You might be saying what happened to the green tulips in the materials picture? I tried them out but didn't like the bright green look and I couldn't find any deep pink tulips. And I used fabric paint on the solid green hydrangeas to tone them down a bit.
I love the look, but wish I had a fabulous wooden door like the one pictured to hang it on.
But this will have to do!
And here's a few of my garden hydrangeas that inspired me . . .
Oops . . . had to show my beautiful calla lily!
Have you been inspired lately?
Take a little time to enjoy
