As I get older I feel like I’m becoming more of the crunchy granola type. Too much violence, too much hatred. Let’s just get along and sing “Kumbaya” around a campfire, okay? Now I’m not one to slather on patchouli or forego shaving, so I thought a cute peace sign wreath for my door would be the next best way to make a statement that love and kindness dwell here.
And oh yeah, baby, this thing is groovy. And adorable. Just how I like my craft projects.

How to Make a DIY Peace Sign Wreath
First, I gently hammered thumbtacks all the way around the wooden peace sign. I did this to give the peace sign a little bit of dimension.
Next, I painted the entire peace sign with a coat of this dark gray paint.
Next, I stenciled a floral pattern onto the heart using this color of paint. Once it dried, I fastened it to the peace sign with leather cording.
Then I strung some wooden beads to the leftover leather cording, and stapled that to the top of the peace sign, on the back, to create a hanger for my wreath. Notice the poor stapling job . . . it took quite a few tries to get that to actually work.
And that was all it took to make this cute DIY peace sign wreath! I really love how this project turned out; it might be one of my favorites!
The best part was that after I’d hung it up and stood there admiring it, my little guy said to me, “Mama, I really like that steering wheel you put on the door.” He is definitely my biggest fan. 🙂
