Unlike many of the talented bloggers I read, I am not a very "crafty" person. In a recent post, I asked if anyone knew how to make a hydrangea wreath, as I have plenty of flowers in my backyard. Two are young, small plants and a third is enormous! In the summer, its blooms are white, turn to green, and then to a brown/copper colour later in the season.
The help I needed came from Donna at The Country Nest. She provided some excellent tips and sent a link to a post she had written a couple of years ago. I'm not going to go into the steps here because her post is well written, has really useful photos, and was clear enough for a non-crafty type to understand!
Thanks to Donna, I've made a wreath. (Should I keep or "lose" the bow? Replace it with something else?)
Needless say, I'm "following" Donna now and have put her site on my blogroll. You should see her current post: My Potting Shed. I'd love to work in that space. She even has a beautiful, colourful wreath on the door! I hope you'll wander over there for a visit.
This week, I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for "Mosaic Monday". Her blog is another one well worth a look.
Before you head out, I'd be thrilled if you'd leave a comment. I really appreciate hearing from you.
(Hmmm, I wonder what can be done with rose hips...)
Warm wishes, all!
