Hydrangea and Wheat Centerpieces

Posted by on September 30, 2014 in Crafts, Decor, Thanksgiving | 22 comments

Hydrangea and Wheat Centerpieces are easy to make! Whether you use dried hydrangeas or silk ones depends on the durability and cost you want for your arrangements. By using a silk hydrangea,  it will stay in tact longer, but it is more expensive. Drying your own hydrangeas is easy and they’re free, but the arrangements are very fragile.  I’ll show you combinations of hydrangea and wheat along with simply using them alone.

Materials Needed:

Floral Foam for Dried Arrangements


Dried or Artificial Hydrangeas



Everything stays better if you have a piece of floral foam in the container. The stalks of wheat are thin and will stay in place when secured in the floral foam. Place this in first.

Place the artificial or dried hydrangeas in your container.

Add stems of wheat until you get the desired look.


This arrangement uses artificial hydrangeas and wheat…

Paint a mayo or canning jar, add your arrangement, and complete with a raffia bow.  Very simple to do!

Or add a colored bow and set on a rustic crate…..

Simply use the wheat by itself. Three slim vases filled with wheat make a great impact of texture and color. The red vases are from the Dollar Tree so this look is very inexpensive!

I dry my own hydrangeas to use in arrangements. This single hydrangea is simply stuck in an interesting glass bowl. A whimsical owl sits nearby. Not hard to do and only takes a couple of seconds!

OK, now it’s your turn to try it! These arrangements will fit right into the Thanksgiving season, too! For very little money, they make a big impression!
