DIY. Christmas decorations from your garden.


I think Christmas arrangements should be made quickly. I will show you a quick and easy way to transfer your crease blossoming Hydrangea’s into a snowy Christmas decoration.

What do you need?
  1.        Hydrangea’s from your garden.
  2.        Christmas snow.
  3.        Spray glue.
  4.         A bowl.



How to go about?
  •         Make sure your Hydrangea’s are dry.
  •        Put the Christmas snow in the bowl.
  •        Spray the Hydrangea with the glue. (It is best to do this outside otherwise your house will be glued together!)
  •        Dip the Hydrangea in the bowl with Christmas snow.



The result is a natural snowy effect!

Do It Yourself. Snowy Hydrangea's.

All we need is Christmas snow and spray glue.




After spraying the Hydrangea with spray glue, dip it into the bowl with snow.

Ready. Natural snowy arrangement. Perfect for the end of November.



Another option, now that we have everything on the table! White Christmas effect.

  •        Cut some Hydrangea ‘Annabel’ from your garden.
  •        Spray them with white spray paint. (Again, this is preferably done outside).
  •        After drying, spray them with the glue. (Again outside, you know why).
  •        Dip them in the bowl with Christmas snow.
  •        Place the Hydrangea ‘Annabel’ on a plate and add some Christmas baubles and Christmas snow.



Of course you can do this with other materials. Use what is available in your garden and most of all use your imagination!

Success.

  1. Hetty, those look lovely! I especially like the sparkly white contrasting with the dark urns. But, I have never seen that sort Christmas snow here. What is is made of?

    1. Here, they do sell some sort of snow for nativity scenes, although it's very opaque and dense - not light and sparkly like yours.

    Very inspirating! So poetic...
    Hydranga is a fantastic flower...

  4. Great idea for areas that hardly get any snow (like California where I live - only on higher elevations!)
