Painting and Glittering Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas –spray painting and glittering hydrangeas. I love the look of dried hydrangeas but for me they need a little bit more. For my Mom’s birthday party I sprayed dried hydrangeas with a light pink color HERE.

A few weeks ago when I knew I was going to put some of the hydrangeas on a Christmas Tree, I went outside and took in some hydrangeas so that they would be dry in time for the Christmas decorating. There is still time to get them dried. It doesn’t take long – maybe a week inside in the warmth. I hung them in my daughter’s mudroom – she said she had dried some there successfully.

For some reason the color looks a little garish but it doesn’t look that way in person so I don’t know why?

It looks nice on the tree. Here is a preview of one of my Christmas Trees. See the hydrangeas?

If you have any hydrangea bushes, this is an easy thing that makes a big impact on a Christmas tree. It kinda fills in those empty green places.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
