Easy Hydrangea Wreath / Jednostavan vjenčić od hortenzije

Hydreangea Wreath by ana@carpe_diem

 
It is hard for me to believe it is middle of October, already!
We are having such a nice weather, sunny and warm,
doesn't fell like fall at all.
 
I have been reading a lot of fall themed posts on various blogs lately,
so I figured I should contribute, as well :)




 
Ne mogu vjerovati da je već sredina listopada!
Temperature su ugodne, dani su sunčani, ne osjećam jesen.
U zadnje vrijeme se po blogovima najviše piše o jeseni i jesenskim projektima,
tako da sam pomislila da bih i ja trebala pridonijeti tome :)




 
Living among evergreen trees, it is hard to spot fall. Really, it is!
Actually, I have noticed that fall is approaching when I realised that my beautiful hydrangea is loosing its color.
 
 
Živeći među zimzelenim drvećem, vrlo je teško uočiti dolazak jeseni. Stvarno, je!
U stvari, jesen sam počela osjećati tek kad sam vidjela da moja lijepa hortenzija gubi boju.






So, I have gathered all of my hydrangea blossoms,
found a wire in a garage
and started to make a wreath.
 
 
Odlučila sam odrezati cvatove hortenzije,
našla žicu u garaži i počela raditi vjenčić.
 




First I have decided where am I going to hang a wreath,
then how wide it is going to be,
and then I started to string one blossom after another.
As you can see at photo above, I cut the blossoms so it has small petal that holds small flowers together.
 

 
Prvo sam odredila gdje ću objesiti vjenčić,
zatim sam odredila koliki će vjenčić biti,
pa sam počela nizati cvatove jedan po jedan.
Kao što se vidi na gornjoj fotografiji, cvatove sam odrezala tako da ostane mala peteljka koja drži male cvjetiće skupa.



 
After a while, I got full, nice looking wreath.
Of course, not all blossoms are the same size.
First I used the biggest ones and tied the wire's ends together.
Then I inserted smaller blossoms where I noticed some  blossom size irregularities.
I used florist wire to secure them to the wreath.




 
Nakon nekog vremena sam dobila lijep i pun vjenčić.
Naravno, nisu svi cvatovi iste veličine.
Najprije sam nizala najveće, zatim privezala krajeve žice jedan za drugi.
Manje sam cvatove umetnula u vjenčić na mjesta gdje sam uočila nejednakosti u veličini cvatova.
Učvrstila sam ih za vjenčić cvjećarskom žicom.




 
Next step was to hang the wreath on its place.
I think this pale shade of green suits well this stone wall.
I belive that this wreath will serve for a long period of time.
 
Another thing I schould to is to put some fall decor on.
I can't help it, I am stuck in everlasting summer :)
 
 
Vjenčić sam objesila na kameni zid.
Mislim da uživo još bolje izgleda,
blijedo zelena boja se odlično uklopila sa raznim nijansama boje kamena.
 
Mislim da bih uskoro trebala promijeniti dekor u jesenski.
Ne mogu si pomoći, zaglavila sam u ljetu koje nikako ne prolazi :)
 
 
In midtime - Carpe diem, everyone!
U međuvremenu - Iskoristite dan!

    1. Hi Marjan! Don't be afraid to cut off hydrangea blossoms, just don't cut the branch. Wreath will be a nice addition to your home decor. Bye

  2. Ana that is a beautiful wreath and it fills up the wall nicely. It is just the right size and shape to make it look great. Weather you want to admit it or not, we have to get ready for fall. I also have the same problem fall wants to hide but I go after it with a vengeance.

  5. It's beautiful! Did you dry the leaves first, or are you letting them dry directly on the wreath? I don't have a garden, but my mother in law does and she has lots of hydrangeas, so now you've got me thinking about make one of these too.
    Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned!

    1. Hi! Yes, I cut the blossoms when I realised that they faded. Well, they looked kind of dry, too. Is it because of the dry climate or because it was a natural process, I dont know. Well, they are cut for a month now and still look the same like the first day. I was looking my moms hydrangea the other day and its blossoms are brown, dry and wrinkled. So, I guess the timing is important, too.
