Happy Wednesday friends! As much as I was loving my Spring Tulip wreath I shared a couple of months ago, this past week I was ready to update the porch with something a little less, ahem, pink. I am a neutral girl, I can't help it! So this past week I mosied on down to Michael's and loaded my cart up with flowers to create this super easy DIY Summer Hydrangea & Fern Wreath. You won't believe how simple it was!
My original plan was to cover the entire wreath with hydrangea and ferns but even with the florals on sale for 50% off it was going to be more than I wanted to spend because we have double doors and all my wreaths have to be made in double which means $$$$. I ended up deciding to do a partial floral arrangement on grapevine wreaths instead and couldn't be happier with how they turned out! (And I only spent $55 for everything for both wreaths.)
Each wreath has one large hydrangea, a spray of fern, and a rose. I also purchased additional leaves and flower filler bunches that I cut apart to use between the two wreaths. All supplies were purchased at Michael's when the floral was 50% off (which is about every other week!)
Start by adding the fern. Just wedge the pick into the grapevine wreath. If you can't get it adjusted where you want it a little floral wire can help but I didn't find that necessary. (See video below.)
Layer the hydrangea in front of the fern as shown and begin to add some filler at the top. (I believe that looks like cherry blossom?)
Add the rose facing downward and continue to fill with the extra flower pieces.
Add the final bit of leaves to the back of the wreath to finish it off!
For the second wreath I did the same thing but reflected on the opposite side so that they would be symmetrical when hung on the double doors. I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out and the price I paid.
