Hydrangeas have gotten so popular to decorate with fresh and dried! They come in so many colors and often dry a different color. In the Pacific Northwest, hydrangeas grow incredibly well, but I did not get mine picked at a good time to dry with color. For some reason, where my plants are located (half under the eaves), they get pretty spotty and I have a hard time picking ones that dry well.
So in January, they hadn't been pruned back yet and I decided that the "browned" old hydrangea flowers on the dead plant actually looked kinda vintage and aged. So I went ahead and cut some and put them around the house. This first picture (at the top) is a bloom that stayed on the year before for even longer and turned see-through. When I found it, I was in awe of the pretty lace-like look of it.
Here are the others I placed around:
Keep it sweet and simple!
