Glittering Dried Hydrangeas

Can you see the faint twinkle of glitter?  When I was drying hydrangeas earlier this Summer (with the hopes of making a glittered bouquet), I promised to show you the finished product when it was on display in the dining room.  Voila! 

The hydrangea petals dried in shades of green and khaki and they are the perfect compliment to my my Wellies green-colored wallpaper.  I punched up the look of the petals by glittering them with different shades of green, gold and faint blue glitter.  I mounded the blossoms onto one another in a open-weave ceramic bowl and all I can say is love, love, love.

To me, this says, "Welcome Fall!"
