peony wreath...

do you like peonies?

i do... they are such a pretty flower... i have them in my yard and every year i look forward to them blooming... they started peeking through the ground this week...

in a previous post i mentioned this peony wreath kit from paper source...

it's made out of paper... 

and i couldn't wait to get started on it...

i got all of the pieces ready to go...
{the kit is very user friendly...}
first attempt at a bloom... not too shabby...
the kit includes the wreath form, the paper, the foam tabs, and the ribbon... {additional supplies needed are double sided tape and a bone folder... but i just used a pencil to bend/roll the petals of the flowers}
i did switch up the ribbon on mine... that's the only change that i made... it came with plain, white satin... but i saw this green checked at joanns and thought it would bring out the green leaves a little bit...
making the flowers was fun... 
i think they would also be cute on the top of packages...
i kind of want an excuse to make more of them... 
 really pretty... don't ya think? 
here's the finished wreath... 
now i just need to find the perfect spot to hang it...

what fun projects are you working on?

have a happy day~

What a pretty wreath! I grew up with peonies and the house we moved into has some too....only Jorden insists on calling them pe-o-nays and it makes me crazy :) I hope you find the perfect spot for your wreath.
