Hydrangea DIY Wedding Centerpieces

blue hydrangea diy wedding centerpiece This hydrangea DIY wedding centerpiece tutorial packs blue hydrangeas into a mirrored cube vase. Flowers can look absolutely stunning when used on their own, and a flower like the hydrangea really doesn’t need anything else adding to it.

In this DIY project I’m using blue hydrangeas as it’s always quite difficult to find flowers to fit with a blue wedding theme and these are perfect. Hydrangeas also come in white, pink, green and purple.

materials for a diy wedding centerpiece You Will Need:

  • A large hydrangea plant.
  • A mirrored cube vase, the ones I’m using here is 6 inches square.
  • A block of Oasis floristry foam.
  • A large piece of film.
  • Scissors and a sharp knife.
preparing foam for a diy wedding centerpiece Step 1

Place the block of oasis foam on top of the vase and push down lightly so that it marks where you need to cut the foam.

Slice off the waste foam with a knife.

Drop the foam into a bucket of deep water and leave it to soak (it only takes a minute).

Continue packing in hydrangea flowers until you have filled the vase. It always looks good if some of the flowers spill over the edges of the vase.
