I sprayed my hydrangea flowers with silver and was pleased to see that the flowers came out a subtle bronze and mauve. I stuck them in a ten year old wreath which already had old faded hydrangea flowers wound into it. It’s now pinned on the front door and I am fairly pleased but more so with the decorations below.
I covered the marble fire surround with the sprayed hydrangea heads having cut the stems off (too twiggy). Then I dotted some glass and silver votives amongst them. I lit my favourite cinnamon, orange and clove scented candle tea- lights for a few minutes and got into the mood for Christmas since the house smells lovely. I’ll try to save them for lighting when the house is full the weekend after next.
