Easy Summer Wreath in 5-Easy Steps

61K Views
I was looking to update our mantel with a new Summer Wreath. I wanted to work in one of my fave flowers, pink peonies. Using an oval grapevine wreath as a base, I used a combination of silks to create my One-of-a-Kind Summer Wreath.
Time: 40 Minutes Cost: $40 Difficulty: Easy

I chose an oval wreath because it worked best with my mantel, but any shape will do.

I chose an assortment of REAL looking silks. The main flowers were peonies, though.

Layer 1 was adding greenery to start. Visit my blog post below to see exactly how and why I started with this layer.

Layer 2 was adding the first of the peonies. It starts out looking a bit odd, until you get to Layers 3 and 4.

Layers 3 and 4 consists of adding filler. I used fern, Queen Anne's Lace and Dusty Miller. (all faux)

    Your wreath is very pretty, but your ribbon is too crowded.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I was given some artificial peonies and a grapevine wreath by two different people. Although I don't have all the greenery, I think I can still make it work. I only have 3peonies, so I will probably cluster them on one

    Very pretty. The sideways oval shape really gives it a unique look.
