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.

    Love the hydrangea centerpiece! I have to make one of these. Where do you find your greenery and flowers? They are so pretty!! I can never find a greenery bush that full> Thank you for sharing your videos. I have learned so much from watching them.

    • Julie Siomacco on June 6, 2019 at 9:55 am

      I put sources in the supply list at the top of the post.

    I have to admit this is the first time I have actually sat down and watched one of the videos. The arrangement turned out gorgeous, and the best part is you made it look so easy I think I could even do it.
    Please don’t stop making the videos.

    I need a wholesale store that I can purchase flowers and greenry. Can you give me some companies I can order from. I have my resale license but I am not able to locate a good source. I have made several arrangements but I can’t afford hobby lobby price and make a profit. Please advise.

      I have a complete list inside our Wreath Making of the Month Club

    Love the arrangement. I tried clicking on the links for Trendy Tree because I wanted to buy exactly what you had. But the page comes up error. Then I tried going directly to web site but items aren’t in stock. Do you have another resource or does it have to be a business?

  6. Shirley Green on June 5, 2019 at 9:46 am

    Hi Julie. I love the Hydrangea centerpiece, but when I tried to order from Trendy Tree, the product couldn’t be found. I’m guessing it’s out of stock already and it didn’t open a box to put my email for when it’s back in stock. I live in Houston, Tx. Any suggestions of where I could purchase something similar?

    • Julie Siomacco on June 6, 2019 at 9:53 am

      Yes, this tutorial was super popular. I would suggest trying other places that sell floral supplies. It doesn’t have to be the exact container.

  7. Shirley on June 5, 2019 at 9:48 am

    I left out the wooden container is what wasn’t available. Thanks

    Love the new hair cut…absolutely beautiful on you!

  9. Miranda on May 12, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Julie, what size is the wooden container you used? I’ve been looking on other websites for some, but I’m not sure what size to look for. Thanks!

    • Julie Siomacco on May 15, 2020 at 12:41 pm

      I believe it was 8 inches. Def not 6 and 12 would be too big

  10. Daisy on July 13, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    This is beautiful. Do you add any water to make the flowers last longer?

    • Julie Siomacco on July 15, 2020 at 8:42 am

      They are all artificial flowers.

    Thank you! This is perfect for what I need to do right now! Beautiful!!!
