Hydrangea Wreath

I made this wreath a while ago, and every time I walk by it I think "Yep, must share that" but I always forget. But today I break that streak.

Last year I bought a kit for a shawl, but didn't really love it, so I used the one set of yarn for this blanket, and then used the remainder to make this wreath, as when I looked at the colors I could think of one thing and one thing only. Hydrangeas.

I found a pattern online (I think it was this one, but it was a while ago so I'm not entirely sure), and just stitched and stitched and stitched until I ran out of yarn (which is Scheepjes Catona, by the way), and was left with a giant pile of hydrangea petals.

I found a styrofoam wreath and wrapped it the yarn that wasn't flower colored. It wasn't that much fun, let's be honest here.

Once the wreath was wrapped, I placed the flowers (and did it again, and again, and then again, because I just couldn't decide) and then finally pinned them down. Then I realized the pins were mighty short, so I added hot glue for extra security.

I ran out of steam, and just did not feel like making leaves for green, so I bought this floral...thing...and then cut that apart and glued pieces here and there.

Not my favorite thing ever, but it's definitely reminiscent of hydrangeas, which is what I was going for, so it's a win, right? I mean...they can't all be gnome wreaths, can they?


  1. I absolutely love it! It screams hydrangeas... Worth the with!

  2. Looks like something they would sell in a decor store for lots of money. Kind of country chic. I like it. Maybe it's just my love of all things purple, but it looks good from here.

  3. OMG that looks amazing!! You clever woman.

  4. it's lovely!! I love the way the flowers go round the wreath, rather than just on the front.

  5. This is beautiful! I am in love with the look of the hydrangea wreaths. I crocheted my own version earlier this year. Really love the idea of layering smaller floral pieces.

    Would love if you came to link up! This month, I am sponsoring the giveaway of a crochet kit!
