Using some lovely dried hydrangea flowers to arrange a large and impressive wreath is one of our favorite ways of prolonging the beauty of our summer gardens. Find out how to make your very own dried hydrangea wreath with this latest DIY.
Gorgeous DIY Wreath Using Dried Hydrangea Flowers
We’ve previously shared other ways of using hydrangeas for crafting such as this arrangement with dried hydrangea stems inside a DIY wooden planter box, pressed hydrangeas on a mason jar votive candle holder and even artificial hydrangeas for a beach-themed centerpiece. So no matter the type of hydrangeas you have, we have a craft idea for you!
One of the most common ways of using hydrangeas is by first drying them just before the end of the flowering season. You can find out how to best dry hydrangeas in this post here and once you’re all set, you can arrange them in a pretty natural indoor wreath.
The dried hydrangeas can be left all natural as we’ve shown here but alternatively, they can also be spray painted in any color giving them a whole new look and feel. Which option would you like to try…painted or au-naturel?

How to Make a Dried Hydrangea Wreath
I shared the tutorial for making this hydrangea wreath on a Facebook Live which you can catch the video here. However, if you prefer the photo tutorial, continue reading below.
Preparing the Materials
Start by cutting the dried hydrangeas leaving a 2 inch long stem. Depending on the size of your wreath and the hydrangea blooms, you will likely need approximately 30-40 dried blooms.
Tie a piece of ribbon around the top of the grapevine wreath for mounting.
Assembling the Dried Hydrangea Wreath
Using the hot glue gun, glue the stem of the dried hydrangea and ‘weave’ the stem into the wreath.
Continue working your way around the grapevine wreath or whatever wreath form you’re using. Repeat until the grapevine wreath has been fully covered. Be sure to take a step back and look at the wreath. You will likely find lopsided areas on the wreath that will need adjusting. Add or remove the hydrangea blooms as needed until you’re happy with the look.
