Holiday Hydrangeas

Judith from Lavender Cottage left a sweet comment 

and I popped over to view her world.

This is her photo with the caption...

"The Annabelle hydrangea flowers that are now a crispy parchment colour
have pretty ice crystals covering them. "


OMGoodness, I LoVed the photo of her hydrangea with ice crystals!

I'm so inspired to play with glitter on the ones in my garden.

so I began with this one...

then I clipped one that was just beginning to fade...

and yet another that I lightly sprayed with white Krylon paint then glittered

here is a view of all 3

hmmm.... what to do with the new beauties?

a holiday door garland!

Thank you Judith for the inspiration.


  1. Hello Paulette
    I am honoured that a creative artist would be inspired by a photo of mine.
    The garland is beautiful and will look charming when hung.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, come again soon.

  2. That was a beautiful way to use your fading hydrangeas!

  3. Hi Paulette, I am visiting from Judith's, I love your inspired project!! A great way to catch the magic of the frost in a lasting way... gorgeous!

  4. Hi Paulette, these are stunning! What a great idea. I dry lots of hydrangea blooms each year so will definitely have to try this.


  5. I love how this looks! The chunky glitter really looks like ice crystals.

  6. Great look I will try it I have Annabelle 's too in my garden. Looks so festive

  7. Very pretty! I love the one that you sprayed with white paint.

  8. They turned out to look just like naturally frost ladden hydrangeas ! How absolutely beautiful

  9. What gorgeous textures, is what I think!
