With only a few weeks of Spring left, I decided it was time for Spring cleaning last week (Better late than never!) and while cleaning up my entire hours, I decided to make this DIY peony wreath for summer. Since it's right around the corner, I figured my house needed a little Summer touch and what better way than with pretty peony blooms?!
My favorite part of this DIY peony wreath for summer is that fact that I spent only $4 on it! I picked up these peony bushes for only $1 each at Dollar Tree and I had the wreath ring and roll of burlap on hand from the last wreath I made. Peonies are so popular, I couldn’t resist making this DIY summer peony wreath. In fact, I love peonies so much, they are going to be the flowers I use in my wedding!
Without any further ado, let's see how you can make your own DIY peony wreath just in time for summer, and on a dollar store budget at that!
5. Now start placing your peony blooms around your DIY summer peony wreath. I recommend to place all the peonies on the wreath and make sure you have them in the right spots before you glue them down. In the peony bushes that I got, I had about half with big blooms and the other half had smaller blooms. So, I alternated big blooms with the smaller blooms. I also made sure to alternate the direction the blooms were facing. I face some in and some out so the wreath looked very full. I also made sure to push the leaves attached to the stem right up under the bloom so that there was plenty of leafy greens filling up the wreath as well.
6. Once you know where all the peonies will go, start hot gluing them down! The best way to do this and make sure the stems aren’t an eye sore is to tuck the stems in where the burlap overlapped. I had enough peonies to put one in every pocket and then fill some of them with extra wherever it needed some fullness.
7. After all the peonies are glued down, look all over your DIY summer peony wreath and see if there are any gaps where more burlap peaks out than flower. If there is, play around with some of the leaves and petals. I hot glued some petals and leaves down to the burlap to keep it from leaving a gap. I also hot glued petals from opposite flowers together so the blooms would open up further.
And that’s it! All you have left to do is hang and enjoy your DIY peony wreath for summer! Now you have an affordable, easy, and, most importantly, pretty peony wreath ready for summer.
