I made a pretty Spring pink peony wreath to brighten up my front door using a bunch of artificial flowers from Michael’s Spring floral line.
I’m updating this post with new floral choices available for Spring 2022
I’ve had bright pink on my mind this Spring! I was thrilled to find so many pretty floral stems in one spot at Michael’s! (I have to admit I went one step further, it was pouring out so I had it same-day delivered…my new favorite thing!!)
I’ve had my Forsythia wreath up for a while and it’s time for a switch.

Don’t worry…I’m not going to try and shove ALL those flowers into this wreath!!! I will be using them for a few different projects for Spring.
- 24″ Grapevine Wreath
- Bright Pink Peonies
- Light Pink Peonies
- White Billy Balls
- Yellow Stems
- Rose Spray
- Pink Cabbage Roses (would work in place of the cosmos)
How do I make a wreath
For this wreath, I’m using a 24″ grapevine wreath...I wanted a big, bold statement.
My formula for putting a wreath together is to start with the showstopper flowers that I want to be the centerpiece of the wreath.
For this wreath, it is the bright pink and light pink peonies. I just LOVE peonies!!
Odd number of stems is more visually pleasing. For the showstopper flowers, I used 3 of the big bright and light pink peonies.
Floral wire cutters are the best thing to use for cutting each stem away from the bunch. Then I find the spot I want the flower and tuck the wire into the grapevine to secure it in place.
I don’t use hot glue in case I want to take the wreath apart and use the stems someplace else next year.
After I had the peonies in place I started to fill in around them with some of the other flowers.
I’m using yellow and white flowers to play off the pinks. I tucked in yellow anemone flowers along with a few white poppies.
Oh, these little pink rose picks remind me of beach roses! They have some eucalyptus attached to them too. One went at each end of the wreath. (these pink rose stems are the closest I can find now)
To finish filling in the wreath I wanted to add a couple of different textures. The white thistle balls and a few sprigs of colored lavender added some more interest to the Spring wreath.
Lastly, I added a ribbon. I picked a burlap with black dots; an unexpected choice but it gives a little pop. (Here’s a burlap w/ cream polka dot ribbon that’s available)
For this simple bow, I gathered the ribbon and made 3 equal-sized loops then secured the bottom with a pipe cleaner. Then used the pipe cleaner to attach the ribbon to the grapevine wreath.
Finished Spring Wreath
Isn’t it pretty!!
It’s so easy to make a really stunning wreath on your own…have you seen some of the prices for those Etsy wreaths??? You can make this beauty for a fraction of the cost and in under 20 minutes!!
The colors and types of flowers you chose are so pretty!
Thanks Marie!! I’m crushing over the pink colors; definitely think it will be my “color” for my planters this year too!!
I think pink peonies and same day delivery are the keys to my heart. Beautiful wreath Jennifer!
This is gorgeous, Jennifer! I love the mix of pastel and brights.
I’m crushing on the colors too!! I think I’m going to use this combo in my planters this year.
I love those peonies and those thistle balls! Beautiful job!!
Yes, Grab some at Michael’s! I’m so impressed with the peonies this year and those little balls add so much detail I’m going to go grab a couple more bunches.
Jennifer, this wreath is gorgeous. Love all of the colors.
Thanks Tammy!! I think I’m going to do bright pink in my planters this year too…when it’s warm enough here!!
You did an amazing job on this wreath! I think the ribbon is perfect! It adds just the night touch! Make sure the squirrels stay away from it!! 😉
OMG!!I was dreaming about crazy sqirrels last night!!
