This DIY spring wreath with lamb’s ear and peonies is seriously the easiest craft you’ll do this season! I’m joining 14 of my blogging friends and sharing our favorite DIY spring wreaths today. They are all simply gorgeous! Thank you to Krista from The Happy Housie for hosting!
Hi friends! I am so excited that the color pink is re-entering my home decor world, because it’s one of my most favorite colors … and pulls me out of my end-of-winter funk. I love how it compliments the turquoise and brightens up my neutrals. So, I decided to make a wreath with bright pink peonies and soft green lamb’s ear.
If you’ve followed me for a while, then you know that I already made a Lamb’s Ear and Peony Wreath last year about this time. I’m on repeat these days, y’all! 😜
The reason for the double craftiness is that my favorite source for lamb’s ear was sold out last year and I had to buy it from an online vendor I’d never used before. The quality was OK, but I LOVE Hobby Lobby lamb’s ear stems the most. So, this year I have a TON of lamb’s ear from Hobby Lobby laying around after I decorated my Christmas tree with it. And I wanted a vibrant pink floral wreath for spring, so it’s a win/win! This post contain affiliate links for your convenience. See my full disclosure policy here.
So, while my two wreaths are similar, I love this one so much more! We’ll just say that my lamb’s ear and peony wreath evolved into a better version of itself this year. 😉 (But I love the little “welcome” sign in the wreath from last year, so I’m keeping it and putting it somewhere in my home.)
The process was super quick, and I recorded it on video so that I can see exactly how easy it is. I use really technical terms like “not so wild and crazy” and “don’t like where it’s sticking up.”
Supplies You’ll Need to Make a Simple Spring Wreath with Peonies
- Grapevine Wreath (mine is 18″)
- Lamb’s Ear stems – about 5-6
- Coral Peony Blooms
- Mini Assorted Pink Blooms
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Floral Wire Cutter
Directions to Make your Simple Spring Wreath
The process is truly so easy. You just cut down your stems to a manageable length with your floral wire cutter and start layering them in.
The first layer is the lamb’s ear. I drew an imaginary line down the middle of the wreath and filled in one side with lamb’s ear. I didn’t fill it completely, but left a few spaces for my peonies.
Then I added the peonies. I tried to use just 5 blooms, but they didn’t look quite right, so I added a 6th and it was perfect.
I filled in all of the empty spaces with the smaller blooms and called it done!
Once I got everything where I wanted it, I went back through with hot glue and glued it all in place!
I hung it on the front door because I plan to put it there. The plaid door mat can be found here, here and here! (Depends on where it’s in stock at the time.) And the “Come in + Get Cozy” rug can be found here.
But then I brought it in and set it on the mantel to keep it out of reach of the kids, and I love it up there! I may just call it a happy accident and use something else for the front door.
Also, how desperate is my front door for a new coat of paint? I want to paint it either a taupe-y brown color (as well as my shutters), or paint it Wythe Blue like my dining room!
