A good friend and I decided we would do a home project today. I wanted a wreath for my front door but I didn't want to spend on arm and a leg to get one. The picture above was my inspiration, however I wanted it full of hydrangeas. Luckily, the craft store had the wreaths and silk flowers on sale.
The hydrangeas were on long stems, so I cut them close to the flower with wire cutters.
I arranged the flowers how I wanted and placed the stem through the wreath.
I wanted to make sure the flowers were secure, so I placed a dab of hot glue around the bottom of the stem where it touched the wreath. Then cut the excess of the stem again.
Here is the final product. I am still working on fluffing it out just how I want it. I'm sure I'll tweak it as I walk by.
I absolutely love how my wreath turned out. I think it is great for summer time and can easily go into fall.
Here is a sneak peek of what my friend did. She will be using this in her revamped laundry room. Don't you love it?
Besides having a great workout this morning, I enjoyed our project day with a great friend.
