Once a month there is a flea market just outside out apartment building, there are always 2 or three stands that sell shabby chic stuff. One lady also sells these handmade hydrangea wreaths. I bought one for 5 euros and chose the heart shaped wreath. The flowers were still fresh when I bought the wreath as you can see in the picture below. The lady said to just lay it flat for a few days until it dried.
So these next pictures were taken about 4 days after I bought the wreath, it was dry so I decided it was time to use it properly.
The colors are still the same as when they were fresh! I love this wreath!
