DIY Pumpkin Hydrangea Arrangement

With only a few days to go before Thanksgiving,
we have a feeling there are still some out there searching for the perfect decorations to add to the celebration. Whether that person is you, or you’re just searching for a fun last-minute DIY project, these little pumpkin hydrangea arrangements are quick, easy, and adorable. Follow along below for step-by-step instructions on how you can make them at home!


What You’ll Need:

 

Step 1: Prep

For this arrangement, you’ll want to cut your stems relatively short. Additionally, make sure the stems are clear of any leaves. At this time, you’ll also cut a few strips of wire. Make sure they’re cut long enough to wrap into the bloom while also wrapping around the pumpkin’s stem. For each cut flower, slip a piece of wire through a fork or branching on the stem. No need to stick the wire through the stem, just make a loop to hook gently around the plant while keeping the other end of the wire straight.

Step 2: Arrange

In your hand, start arranging your hydrangeas and foliage. Get creative and have fun with it!

Step 3: Wrap the stems and wire with floral tape

Once you’re happy with how your arrangement looks, wrap the stems and wire with floral tape. Start at the top, where you looped the wire around the plants. Then, like you would a bandage, wrap the stems and wire together. In the end, you’ll have one “stem” to work with, made up of wire and floral tape.

Step 4: Place on the pumpkin

Put a little loop at the end of the wire. Make sure it’s big enough to fit around the stem of the pumpkin snuggly. Then, place that end around the pumpkin stem and loop the rest of the wire around. If the wire is too long, use your wire cutters to cut it to the perfect length.

And there you have it.
