Five Minute Hydrangea Fall Wreath

This very easy fall hydrangea wreath takes only five minutes to make with my simple tutorial.

Hydrangeas are definitely one of my favourite flowering shrubs.

We have a few of these lovely shrubs in our shade garden beds on either side of our front porch.  And when they are in bloom I love the walkway to our house so much more. There is something so classically welcoming about hydrangea blooms.

One of my absolute favourite ones is a big mop-head hydrangea that lives in the garden bed beside our garage. The variety is called Limelight; and the massive flowers are the most beautiful pale white-green colour that I’ve ever seen. The best thing is that it seems to bloom for months on end!

So when it came time to make the switch from my DIY succulent wreath over to a more “fall-ish” wreath this year; I knew I wanted to do something with lovely hydrangeas. And since the start of the school year is a notoriously busy time for me, I knew it had to be quick!

To make this you will need:

1 grapevine wreath form
1 multi-stem of fall branches (I picked these grey-green ones up from Michaels)
1-3 stems of hydrangea blooms (there are lots of colours to chose from!)
Wire cutters
Hot Glue Gun

The grapevine wreath, leaves and hydrangeas laid out with pliers and a hot glue gun.

I started by cutting my fall branches into smaller and shorter pieces. They were naturally divided into three so this was really easy to do…

Cutting down the branches with leaves.

I then bent the stem slightly to mimic the shape of the wreath form and tucked them under and into the grapevine wreath form to hold them in place.

I positioned two of the smaller branch sections so were facing up towards the top of the wreath, and the third so it was heading in the opposite direction to fill in the bottom sections of the wreath.

You can add a little bit of glue to hold the branches in place, if needed. Mine felt secure with just wrapping them into the wreath form.

Bending the leaves and stems to fit on the wreath.

 Next, use the wire cutters to cut the hydrangea stems fairly close to the flower base. I left about 1-2 inches of stem below where the flowers sit.

Apply hot glue to this stem section…

Using the hot glue gun to glue the white hydrangeas onto the wreath.

And press the glue-y hydrangea stem into position on the grapevine wreath, finding a spot between the vines to secure it in to. Hold it in place for a few seconds while the glue cools and sets.

Pressing the glued hydrangeas onto the wreath.

Continue with gluing on your additional hydrangea blooms, add some twine or a ribbon to hang the wreath, and you’re done!

Simple, fresh, and pretty for fall!

The quality of the hydrangea blooms and stems that you select from the craft store makes a big difference, these ones have a beautiful, soft, natural, realistic look to them.

  1. Great wreath idea! Simple and classy. Also, I took the “house tour” and at first I was like, there’s no way this woman has kids…. came to the kids room and I was like, she has BOYS. What??? How is there any unstained white in that house?? They must be gone all the time, because I’ve never seen a house with kids that has such UNTAINTED furniture. But that’s great! What is your secret? Thanks again for the ideas!

    1. Hi Wanda,
      I don’t see why not, as long as you are careful not to break them while gluing! That sounds really pretty!

    1. Hi Jalene, I use a magnetic hook for wreaths – and try to cover it with the ribbon or hanging twine that I use:) Hope that helps!

  2. Your entryway areas – both outside and inside – are so pretty! I love your decorating style and colors. I may have to try this wreath for fall. The past several years I have been using a dried boxwood wreath that was a beautiful bright green at Christmas years ago! It dried so nicely to a wheat color for fall that I hung my initial in it with some burlap and was done. Maybe I can try something new this time! Thanks for the idea!
