Right before Halloween, we made this fun video to show you how to arrange paper hydrangeas. I love making hydrangeas for fall, so this video will show you a few different paper hydrangea arrangements, including bouquets, wreaths, centerpieces, and topiaries. Have you made any hydrangeas yet? Tell us about it in the comments below!
As you’ll see in my video below, you can use my hydrangea pattern or my Fiskars hydrangea punch to create your paper hydrangea flowers. Since some of my hydrangea ideas include leaves and greenery, I’ve also included the pattern for the leaves at the bottom of this post. Or you can use my Fiskars leaf punch.
Another tool I use all the time for making paper flowers is my Fiskars curling tool. In the video, I’ll show you how to use a curling tool to give your hydrangea petals a more natural shape. If you don’t have a curling tool yet, you can also use the edge of your scissors to curl your petals.
Curling your petals can take some time, but it’s very easy to do. And it’s worth it! If you want your flowers to look realistic, curling your petals is a must.
Ok, back to the video! At the very beginning, I’ll show you how to create a dried hydrangea fall feel for your arrangement by using certain colors. I’ll also show you how to arrange paper hydrangeas in different ways—by using a foam ball or wreath form, gluing flowers onto your floral wire, potting your hydrangea flowers, and adding them to floral bouquets.
I hope this video inspires you to create some gorgeous paper hydrangea arrangements this year! If it does, I’d love to see your creations. Make sure to share them with us on our Facebook page or on your Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia. Happy floral crafting! ~Lia and team
