Peony And Moss Wreath
Since it’s peony season, I figured why not keep the party going with the a peony and moss wreath.
You may recall that last fall I whipped up a fall wreath that involved moss. To make it autumnal (I don’t know why, but I really like saying that word), I added some faux fall leaves. In the tutorial, I showed how I made the leaves temporary so it would be easy to switch them out with something else that’s more seasonally appropriate.
Here’s what you’ll need:
straw wreath (I used a 14″)
moss (I buy this particular brand, which I love)
hot glue gun
For the detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to cover the wreath with moss see the original post HERE.
Once your moss wreath is covered, grab your faux peony stem and use the wire cutters to trim it down to about 2 inches. Then, strip the plastic stem off using the scissors. Stick the wire into the wreath.
And voila! A completely different looking wreath.
Since I already had the moss wreath completed, switching out the faux foliage for the peonies took all of 5 minutes.
It’s like the moss wreath is one of those lawn geese, and I’m dressing it for the appropriate season.
What do you think of this double duty wreath?
Looking for another wreath idea? I recently whipped up this summery pinwheel wreath for the Oriental Trading Company blog.
You can check out that tutorial HERE.
Love the versatility of a good wreath! I have some spare silk peonies and a blank burlap wreath, thanks for the inspiration!
Now this is what I call pretty.
Simple yet elegant. Just dropping by from the Freedom Fridays with All My Bloggy Friends

Thanks so much for sharing your creativity at the The DIY Collective this week! Hope to see you again next Thursday.
Have an awesome week!
This is beautiful! I like the idea of being able to switch out things for the different seasons instead of having to start from scratch. I was wondering, where do you get the inspiration for your DIY projects? Are they things you’ve seen others done, but put your own spin on?
