How wonderful was this weekend?!
I don't know about in your parts, but around here the sun was shining (which is a far cry from what it looks like today) and my spring fever was in full swing.
I have long been in search of the perfect spring wreath, and have yet to find what I want and for a price I am willing to pay. So a few weeks ago, I decided to get my craft on and make my own version of a peony spring wreath. I'd never done this before, but I thought I would give it a shot and here's how it things turned out... (!)
I am obsessed with the final product - it is exactly what I have been wanting!
Here's a little look at the extremely easy process...
-buy (1) 18'' vine wreath
- buy silk flowers of your choice
I choose bouquets of peonies that had about 4-5 blooms on each bouquet. In total I bought 4 that would 50% off each. I also bought 8 - individual stems of peony blooms - 4 white and 4 light pink -- these were a little more expensive but also 50% off at $2.99 each.
- use wire cutters to cut the stems about 2-3 inches below the bloom.
- start weaving the blooms through the vine wreath
originally I had intended on hot gluing the blooms to the vine wreath, but after placing a few on, I quickly realized there was no need and the blooms were securely stuck in between the vines.
-play with the arrangement of the blooms until you're happy
- and DONE!
Vine wreath - $9.99
(4) bouquets @ $7.99 each on sale - $31.96
(8) blooms @ $2.99 each on sale - $23.92
Total Cost- $65.87
Since this weekend was so nice, I decided to go ahead and hang it... Bring on Spring!
