I’m feeling the Christmas spirit, and I’m dying to make a red hydrangea wreath for the nursery. Floral wreaths are beautiful and they are easier to make than people think. We wanted to make a special wreath for our table, yet we didn’t know what to do. We experimented with the flowers in our garden until we found what we were looking for. We decided to use red hydrangeas because they were easy to work with. If you wish to know how to make a red hydrangea wreath there are plenty of websites to help you make your own beautiful centerpiece.
How To Make A Homemade Red Hydrangea Wreath
1st Step: Pick The Flowers
The first step is to carefully pick as many Hydrangeas as you think you will need. We found we needed to pick more flowers because we didn’t have enough. It is important to pick each of the flowers carefully to ensure they were as perfect as they wanted them to be. We found it was best to pick our Hydrangeas during the cooler months; however, that is not always the case.
Experts will provide you with the information you need to grow colorful Hydrangeas in your garden. We experimented with the stem until we were happy with the result. We found we needed longer, rather than shorter stems because they were easier to create the shape we wanted.
There are specific instructions that will show you how to make a red Hydrangea wreath with various length stems. We found older flowers did not produce the same result as younger, fresher ones. We enjoyed experimenting with our flowers as we knew it was part of the learning process. The following stage was harder than we thought; however, we had fun which was the main thing.
2nd Step: Drying Them
The next step was to dry the flowers as best we could. We tried various ways to dry them; however, the best way was to press them before allowing them to dry out. We used a special press; however, large pieces of paper will work just as well.
Once you have placed the flowers on the pieces of paper you fold them over and press down on it with your hands. You may find you need to repeat this process quite a few times until you are satisfied with the result. If the flowers are not thoroughly dry they will be harder to work with. The drying process varies depending on which method you used. It took two to three days to complete the drying process.
3rd Step: Weave Them Together
It can take up to a fortnight depending on the number of flowers and the technology available. Once the flowers are dry you can weave and bend them together to create a functional wreath. We experimented with the shape and our technique until we knew what we were doing.
We found the process was easier than we thought it would be. We had no idea how to make a red hydrangea wreath before we started. We weren’t confident we could make one until we began adding more flowers to strengthen our wreath. We used special sprays to give our wreath its radiant gleam and to protect it from harm.
We had no idea how to make a Red Hydrangea wreath; however, once we saw it on our table we knew we’d make another one in the future. We hope you have fun making your wreath and you love it as much as we love ours. The main thing is to be patient as you experiment with the flowers and the drying process knowing you will be well rewarded for your efforts.
There is plenty of information to show you how to make a red hydrangea wreath for your table. There are plenty of drying options available; however, some are better than others. It is important to choose quality flowers to ensure you achieve the best results imaginable. Stem length is also important because it determines your ability to create a strong, reliable wreath you can admire for years. In conclusion, we used quality sprays to ensure our wreath was as strong and shiny as we wished it to be.
