Spring is my absolute favorite season! I love it when all the plants start to sprout, temperatures warm up, and the trees turn green again. It just makes everything seem so bright after a dreary winter.
When it was time to dig out my spring decor, I noticed that my yellow tulip wreath was looking a little faded. So, I decided to make a new one.
I have seen a bunch of peony wreaths on Pinterest and I love the way they look! So, I headed to Hobby Lobby to get supplies. Here’s how I made a peony wreath:
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
To make a peony wreath you will need:
- grapevine wreath form
- multiple sized peonies
- Lambs Ear stems
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- wire cutters (not pictured)
Luckily, I already had all of these supplies on hand, except for the flowers and ribbon. So, this wreath didn’t cost me very much to make.
Step 2: Cut Peonies from Stems
The next step is to cut down the peony stems. This is what you will likely need the wire cutters for. The peonies I bought were too thick to cut with regular scissors.
Make sure you leave about 0.5-1-inch of stem on the flowers. This will give you something to apply the hot glue to when it’s time to attach them to the wreath.

Step 3: Attach Greenery
Next, decide where you want your arrangement to be on the wreath. I knew I wanted 2 flower arrangements separated by a bow.
I used one stem of Lamb’s Ear greenery for the base of each arrangement. (These stems were left over from my farmhouse pumpkin mantel arrangement.)
I used the wire cutters to trim the stems to an appropriate length, so they wouldn’t stick out past the wreath form. After trimming them, glue them down.

Step 4: Add Flowers
Take your time and arrange the peonies on top of the greenery.
I played with the arrangements for 20 minutes before I got them just right. I placed the biggest flowers closest to the bow and the smaller ones farther away to give the arrangements a tapered look.
After your flowers are arranged, glue them into place.

Step 5: Add a Bow
To be honest, I am not a good bow maker. I have to YouTube bow-making tutorials every time I need to make one. But after 3 frustrating, hand-cramping tries, I was able to come up with this….and it’s good enough!
After you get your bow ready, glue it to the wreath. I also added a few extra Lamb’s Ear leaves to fill in a few spots.
