Decorating with wreaths is not just for your front door. However, I hang a homemade wreath on my front door for every holiday, but I also use them inside my house to decorate for holidays and every day. Since I enjoy making wreaths I DIY wreaths for every occasion.
Over the years I have taught wreath making classes and I hope to share something new to inspire you to try out a new style of wreath making. I have been working on a bedroom makeover for my daughter’s bedroom and it really needed some whimsical Boho decor, therefore I decided to make a pretty peony wreath with wood beads.

Things needed to make a wreath:
The first step when making a wreath is selecting your form.
The next step is to gather your florals, greenery and/or ribbon.
Now it’s time to get crafting.
Tip: I made a fun video of my hubby cutting the balls you can watch it HERE. Please like my Facebook page while you are there so you don’t miss any of my new videos. If you want to save some money on the balls you can buy them whole and cut them in half.
I began attaching the split balls with hot glue to the form (I used 16 split balls.) Placing them together as close as possible, while creating a tight row of split balls, but leaving a space approximately 1/3 of the wreath form.
Note: you can use an embroidery hoop for the form, however, this form is easier to work with.
This wreath can be used as a front door wreath or inside your home all year. I wanted it to be romantic and whimsical since it is for my daughter’s bedroom, thus I used both peonies and succulents and the split balls.
Note: if you attach all the floral and greenery with floral wire you can easily change those elements for an updated look.
Wreath Hanger and Streamers
I added the tiny pink ball trim as streamers to the bottom of the wreath for a Boho vibe.
This wreath needed a hanger since it was for a bedroom wall, thus I decided to use a pink velvet ribbon. It wanted to slide into the space between the split balls for that reason I glued the crisscrossed staples to the back of one split ball to hold it in position. I am going to make another split ball wreath with a bow. You can find my post about bow making in this earlier post.
