Kransar

Enkel julkrans för nybörjare

Här är en enkel julkrans. Vill man lära sig göra egna kransar är detta en bra krans att börja med.

Ett tips för att få fina kransar är att blanda 3 – 5 olika typer av grönt. Det gäller att använda grönt som har olika nyanser och struktur i barren. Som här använder jag grön gran, blå tall och gul thuja. Till det lägger jag till några röda dekorationer för att få en riktigt julig färgklick.

Juldekorationer i entrén

My front porch got a Christmas makeover this weekend. I just gathered the wreaths and winter containers that i’ve made last week and put string lights on. We’re lucky to live close to many big forests so getting greens and using them for these types of projects is easy 🌲💡🌿

Simple DYI Fall Wreath – Video Tutorial

I got asked to show how I go about making my wreaths by an online garden store. So I went outside of my comfort zone and made a video tutorial. I figured it was easier to show the process though a video than with photos.

The wreath is simple. The base is made out of dried ferns. For extra decoration I added dried Hydrangeas, Agastache, grasses and artificial acorns. The acorn were the only thing that did not come out of my garden.

Dried Hydrangeas Fail and Another Fall Wreath (out of Hydrangeas)

A few weeks back I dried the blooms from my Hydrangea Limelight. To my surprise, they all died. They lost color and shape and I had to toss them. So what went wrong? Well, I cut them too early. They hadn’t begun to dry on the shrub yet so they still needed a lot of moisture.

In order to retain color and shape, you will need to let flowers partially dry on the shrub first. Cut them when the color begins to fade but while they still hold their shape.

My second attempt turned out better. The blooms dried beautifully since I waited until later in the season before I cut them. I followed the steps that I describe in my previous post on how to dry hydrangea blooms.

A blend of Hydrangea ’Limelight’ and Hydrangea ’Annabelle’ turned into this simple, yet gorgeous fall wreath.
