Craft Project - Sunflower and Hydrangea Bonnetby Wen Zientek-SicoThis beautiful hanging floral arrangement is easy to make and perfect for fall. We used sunflowers in warm red and russet colors, but yellow sunflowers would also be beautiful, especially if paired with blue hydrangea blossoms. The flowers we used came from 2 silk bushes and we had more than enough for the arrangement and it was much cheaper than buying the flowers by the stem.
Sunflower and Hydrangea Bonnet
11-12 large silk sunflowers
10-12 silk hydrangea blossoms
10 small velvet autumn leaves
12-15 green leaves in different sizes
18 inch straw hat
Glue gun or tacky glue
Remove the flowers from their stems if necessary. Arrange the sunflowers and larger hydrangea blooms on the hat. Fill in with the different leaves and smaller hydrangea blossoms, nestling the green leaves underneath the flowers for a more natural look. Once you have the flowers arranged the way you like them, remove them one by one and glue them onto the hat until they are all affixed firmly. Let the glue dry thoroughly before hanging.
