As I get older I feel like I’m becoming more of the crunchy granola type. 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 DIY 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
You can make your own version of this DIY peace sign wreath so easily!
Step One: Hammer Thumbtacks to the Peace Sign
First, I gently hammered thumbtacks all the way around the unfinished wood peace sign. I did this to give the peace sign a little bit of dimension.
It looks funny like this, but it will look much better!
Step Two: Paint the Wooden Peace Sign
Next, I painted the entire peace sign with a coat of this dark gray paint.
Step Three: Dry Brush Contrasting Paint Over the Dark Paint
Once the gray paint dried, I lightly brushed some of this paint on top.
Then, I painted the wooden heart this color.
Step Four: Stencil a Pattern on the Wooden Heart
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.
Step Five: Create a Wreath Hanger
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. 🙂
