My neighbor gifted me with a bag of beautiful dried hydrangeas the other week. I was so excited, but I had no idea how I wanted to use them! After letting them sit for a few weeks, I decided to try a little experiment, and see how they would look as a frame:
This was a super easy project, and I just love how it turned out! The best part: it was *free*! I also don’t think I’ve ever seen a dried hydrangea frame before, so that’s always exciting
All you need is an old frame, hot glue, and dried hydrangeas.
I simply cut down bigger blooms, and hot-glued them piece by piece onto the frame:
By the end, it gets to be a little like a puzzle. There were a few spots that were fuller or more sparse, so I filled in where I needed. The charm of this frame is that it’s organic, and not perfect.
I think it looks awesome with the frame I got for 99 cents last year:
Sandy wasn’t too impressed by the frame, but she looked too cute – I had to take a picture:
Do you have dried hydrangeas around your house? How do YOU like to decorate with them?
