DIY Fall Decorations: Hydrangea and Cork Wreath
Hi Everyone, I am back to share another quick and easy Fall project with you all to welcome your guests over the Fall season. I thought it would be fun to use something other than burlap, don’t get me wrong , I love burlap especially in my Fall decorating. When I found this at Michael’s I thought it would be fun to create a Fall Hydrangea Cork Wreath using these pieces along with some dried hydrangea from the yard.
DIY Fall Wreath with Hydrangea and Cork
- Grapevine wreath
- Hydrangeas… I used some from my yard, but you could use silks
- Round cork circle pieces
- Cork ribbon
- Hot glue gun
How To DIY A Fall Hydrangea Cork Wreath
First you will want to find placement around your grapevine wreath for your first layer of round corks and hot glue in place.
Next you will place two more round cork pieces on each side the the first round cork piece and hot glue in place
Make a ribbon with your faux cork ribbon and hot glue it to your grapevine wreath. to make your ribbon bow here is a great tutorial on how to make this bow.
For the last layer of round corks you will cover them with some of your cork ribbon.
Many of you may already know this: if you do, you will agree this is the easiest way to cutting a perfect round circle: when you are attaching it to a round piece. Those of you that don’t know, here is a little tip for you.
Glue your round cork piece on the opposite side of your ribbon, flip it over using your cork as a cutting guide, cut along and around your cork piece. I have found that using this type of scissors which are spring-loaded not only makes it easier to get a closer cut but is easier on the hands….me with carpal and capital tunnel, these scissors make it possible to do these type of projects with less pain. These are also great to use in the garden.
Once you are done covering your pieces, place and hot glue them in between the two round corks. Now that all your cork pieces and ribbon is done, add your hydrangeas and glue in to place.
And you are done…that quick and that easy.
Another idea for this wreath, this wreath could be easily changed up. After you are done with it, why not recycle it???
This could make a nice teacher gift instead of covering your last cork pieces with the cork ribbon, how about using some for the teacher? It could actually use it to pin notes on (since the round circles are cork) or maybe pin pictures of their class, by replacing the hydrangea with another type of flower… I think sunflowers would be nice. What do you think?
