DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath

Wreaths are a staple to adding character to your front door; it is the first thing a person sees before walking into your home. I have created a short and easy tutorial on how to make one for the fall season.
Items needed:
9 Hydrangea Flowers (OrangeCreamBurgundy) --Bought at Hobby Lobby for 50% off (Original Price: $5.99 each, Sale Price: $2.99 each)
Grapevine Wreath --Bought at Hobby Lobby (Original Price: $4.99, but I used a 40% off coupon which made the price $2.99)
Fall Leaves (optional)
Wire Cutters
Hot Glue-- I used tape, but hot glue would have been a better choice.
First Step:
You want to cut the flower stems using wire cutters; I cut them about 2 inches from the flower.

Second Step:
Now you will stick the flowers into the wreath. If you decide you want to glue the flowers on the wreath (I didn't because they stayed without glue), wait till you have the flowers arranged on the wreath. When I put all the flowers on, I had a small gap; just rearrange the flowers until they cover the whole wreath.

Third Step:
Once you have the flowers the way you like them, you will then add the leaves (optional). Like I said above, I used tape. If you have hot glue, that's what I would recommend. I didn't have hot glue, so I used what I had.
Fourth Step:
It's time to make the bow. Some people (including myself) can get frustrated when trying to make a bow because it doesn't always look the best. I included a how-to on how to make a bow below.




Fifth Step:
Add the bow and hang it up! I ended up making another bow because I wanted the ends to hang lower.
