Making wreaths is one of my favorite past times. I love coming up with something new to hang on my front door or mantel for the upcoming season or holiday. My favorite flowers are peonies, so I knew I needed to make a peony spring wreath, this is my absolute favorite wreath I have ever made and it only took a few minutes!
Peony Spring Wreath
Michaels had some BEAUTIFUL peony stems, you can find some similar ones on Amazon. The only other things you’ll need are a twig wreath (I found mine at Hobby Lobby, I linked to a similar one on Amazon) and some ribbon. As far as tools go some scissors and a pair of wire snips if you have them are all you’ll need.
The first thing you want to do is use the wire snips and cut the blooms, leaving about a 4 inch stem. You’ll also want to save some leaves for accent, so don’t throw those greens out quite yet.
Look at your wreath and decide what you want the top of the wreath to be and put it down with the top at the top. Like I said, this twig wreath I found at Hobby Lobby, if you can’t find one and like the white/gray you could easily spray paint a brown one like this. Then you will just want to stick your flowers in between the twigs on the right side just above the bottom of the wreath. Then just add a few leaves around the flowers for filler and green until you have it just how you like it.
The final thing you need to do is just tie a bow with your ribbon. I liked the natural look of this burlap ribbon with the green edge. Trim the edges of the ribbon on a diagonal, leaving about 5 to 6 inches on each side.
Admire your work. 🙂
Hang it on a wreath hook and then go back and forth trying to decide which door gets the privilege of holding your new wreath. I love it on my pantry door here, because I can see it whenever I eat…but if I hang it on my front door, it makes me happy whenever I pull up in my driveway. Decisions, decisions!
