Rose & Hydrangea Bouquets


Roses and hydrangeas complement each other because they are both grandiose blossoms that vary in fragrance, color and texture. Making bouquets out of roses and hydrangeas provides you with a creative craft that results in floral handmade gifts and accents. You can use a wide variety of blossoms in a rose and hydrangea bouquet, making the varying looks appear limitless. From compact and handheld to large and flowing, your rose and hydrangea bouquets will dazzle anyone who looks at them.

Step 1

Gather the roses in your hand, forming a fist around the center of their stems. If the roses are thorny, remove the thorns carefully with a pair of sharp scissors.

Step 2

Place a hydrangea flower at each side of the rose bundle.

Step 3

Secure the six flowers together with a rubber band at the center of their stems.

Step 4

Snip 1 or 2 inches from the bottom of the stems to make them even and straight.

Step 5

Tie a 12-inch length of silk ribbon around the rubber banded part of the stems to conceal it. Tie the ribbon into a simple and pretty bow.
