15 Minute Dollar Store Peony Flower Garland


Happy Sunday, Friends! Today in keeping with National Craft Month, I'm sharing another spring craft that also happens to be a 15 minute fix, plus you can make this floral garland with thrifty dollar store peonies...

You may remember, I first shared this canvas sign as upcycled art I crafted with a dollar store decal. Recently, I updated the lettering using the same trick I used for my farmhouse Christmas sign.

The pretty handmade doily garland has adorned my mantel or gallery wall since November and I have really loved the cozy texture during the winter months. Now that we're moving into spring, I'm ready for some fresh floral accents, so I whipped up this floating flower garland using my favorite dollar store peonies. Of course, you could choose another faux flower, if you prefer. For this garland, I used 2 stems/13 flowers. You'll also need fishing line. I used about 50." Ready to make your own?

Start by removing the flowers from the stems, leaving the green backing attached. Then thread the fishing line through the back of the flower to the top. Continue the under-over-under threading pattern...

...guiding the line to the side of the flower petal and double knotting it at the back. Continue the process one flower at a time, leaving 2" to 4" in between blooms. I didn't measure mine, but purposely staggered them slightly different spaces. Drape your garland wherever you'd like to add a hint of spring. The clear line gives the flowers a whimsical floating appearance.

Remember to stop by Tuesday for the Spring Home Tour hosted by Jenna at Wife in Progress. With 35 bloggers participating throughout the week, it's the perfect time to gather spring inspiration and possibly meet some new bloggers, too. I'm excited because many of them are new to me!

  1. I love the floatiness of this garland. I used to buy bags of "deadheads" at Wal-Mart--the flowers that fell off the stems were gathered into a bag and were $1--usually seasonally so there was a good variety. Great way to use them up!

  3. So pretty! I'm a huge fan of using invisible thread for my projects, mainly because it camouflages my mistakes! I love your garland. Funny, I bought one from Target to put on my new mantel for spring/Easter and as pretty as it was, it just didn't hang right so I had to take it back. Perhaps I'll try your way! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home
