How to Make a Hydrangea Centerpiece
Step 1 – Start by using a knife to cut Styrofoam to fit inside the container. I made a narrow piece for the bottom and a square piece for on top of it that fits the box.
Add hot glue to the bottom of the narrow piece and place it in the box. Then add more hot glue on top of it and place the other piece of Styrofoam on top of the glue.
Step 2 – Next insert wooden picks through the Styrofoam and trim any remaining sticking out the top. This will help to secure the two styrofoam pieces together.
To hide the Styrofoam, cover it with moss and attach the moss using floral pins.
Step 3 – Before adding the greenery, trim each piece from the bush and shape each piece.
Insert the greenery into the Styrofoam. I started with one piece in the center and then worked my way around the box until you have greenery around all sides and the center.
Step 4 – Now it’s time to add the Hydrangeas. Again, trim each piece from the flower bush and insert into the Styrofoam. For good adhesion, add hot glue to each stem before inserting.
Continue adding Hydrangeas throughout the box.
Step 5 – Using the same process as the Hydrangeas, continue adding the other flowers until the box is full. Remember to vary heights and use flowers and greenery with a variety of textures.

Isn’t it beautiful? The simple wooden box really allows the flowers to shine and I love the rustic look. This would be perfect for a buffet table, wedding, reception, shower or to give as a gift. You could also easily customize this for any season by switching up the flowers.
