See this $344.00 peony flower wreath? OK, I do love to support artisans and makers, so if you want to buy it, totally do!!
But for those of you who love to craft and make a creative mess, you could DIY one just as gorgeous, for $15.
AND, have loads of fun doing it (just check out the video tutorial below to see how easy it is! ), AND, make as many as you ever want to give as gifts…
All you need to make this wreath( some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. ) are 15 to 18 bunches of artificial flower bouquets depending on how full the flowers are, a dry cleaner’s hanger, and pliers to cut the flower stems.
This one mintue video will show you all the fun!

I saw these pretty peony flowers at a Dollar Tree Store, and knew they would be perfect. I did not want only peonies, so I mixed in some Daffodils and Daisies. Feel free to improvise on the color combinations and flower choices!
Step 1: how to make a wire wreath frame quickly and easily from a dry cleaner’s hanger.
Take a hanger and bend the 2 pointed ends first, then push it down along the sides of a 5 gallon bucket, use the bucket to help forming a circular shape.
Step 2. prepare flowers to make flower wreath
Cut the flowers off the main step, leaving a 4” to 5” long stem at the base of each flower, and the leaves on the stem too.
Important tip: look closely at the image below to see how to shape the stem of each flower. The loop is where the flower would go onto the wire frame later, and the bend at the tip keeps the leaf from falling.
Step 3. add flowers to wire wreath form
Open up the hanger wire frame. String each of the flowers through those loops we made in Step 2.
After closing the wire loop, if the hook is showing too much, just bend and twist it a little, so it’s hidden behind the flowers.
Here is a summary of 5 helpful tips on making a flower wreath:
- Mix flowers of various shapes and colors. Have fun!
- It is so easy to assemble the flower wreath, you can take it apart and mix different colors as the season changes.
- Add more flowers if the flowers slide too much on the wreath.
- You can also tie some fabric or burlap ribbons at intervals around the loop to keep everything more secure.
- If you skipped it, make sure to look closely at the image on how to shape the stem of each flower!

Lovely idea! Off to the Dollar store! Perfect way to make a flower wreath for spring!
I loved the bright colors of your wreathe better even though I love peonies. $344 is my craft budget for a VERY LONG time! I am going to spend my Corona-virus social distancing time to do some serious crafting and DIY-ing!
hi kathy! this social distancing thing is totally challenging, and i am going to focus on DIY crafts too! stay well friend! 🙂
Any idea about how many flower bunches you used?
about 16 🙂
Lovely idea! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you for sharing, this is a wonderful idea I did mine too!
Thank you So much much for sharing its Stunning.
And yes I will try this soon as other craft jobs are finished
I will be keeping a close eye on your work thanks for your time and input.
thank you lynn! happy crafting! 🙂
This is certainly a inexpensive and very creative way of making wreaths for all occasions. Thank you for the tutorial videos and the step by step instructions. I’m sure my wife will be very impressed and excited about the new creations. I will certainly keep you posted. Thanks again.
This wreath is the best project ive seen yet! Even a child can help. THANK YOU,
So pretty! Love the heart-shaped wreath, too! But how do you make it? Of course you have to bend the coat hanger to a heart shape, but how do you fill in the center of the heart with flowers as well?
I would be tickled to make a pair of hearth-shaped wreaths for my doors for February–please let me (and all your readers) know how!
hi sue, the heart shaped one isn’t a wreath, just a fun picture of flowers piled in heart shape! =) you could make a cardboard heart and glue flowers to it! =)
I click, click, clicked and came upon your blog. OMGee willikers!! There are so many things I have fallen in love with and want to create thanks to your incredible ideas and spot-on tutorials ~ deciding on what comes first will be a challenge! One thing’s for sure: my house is going to get awfully dusty because all I want to do now is craft!! I’ll ask that no one writes the date in the dust LOL! Thank you so much for the jolt of inspiration I didn’t know I needed… xo
thank you Soozabell! =) my house is always a mess haha! =)
This wreath is so pretty that I ran to the Dollar Tree and bought flowers and made one myself. Only problem I found, was when I tried to hang it up, all the flowers slid down the wire and bunched at the bottom. Did you glue them to the hanger before hanging it up? If so, what’s the best way to secure them? Sorry about the questions, but I’m pretty new at this crafting stuff.
hi charlotte, happy crafting! =) there are 5 tips listed towards the end of the article, tip #3 &4 will answer your question! =)
LOVE your wreath, esp. the price! Great hack. I couldn’t even imagine spending $344 on a wreath. My husband would probably fall over in shock – probably not best for the marriage! Visiting from Hometalk.
This is a must make, my 8 yr old will love it for her room
This is so smart! Perfect for Spring!! I love the bright colours 🙂 I’m asking bloggers to share their Coat Hanger projects at the Create with Me party tomorrow. I hope you’ll come by my blog, Love Create Celebrate, and share this one!

I can’t believe you just used the hanger and flowers. What a great idea! I absolutely love making wreaths and I’m definitely going to have to try this one out. 🙂
