I don't need a calendar to know when it's about to go from May to June. All I have to do is look outside and see if my peony bushes are blooming. If they are... BOOM - it's June! It's always a great reminder that summer is on the way.
It's also a reminder that nothing lasts forever, because it's only a matter of weeks - maybe even days - before my peonies wilt and die. With that in mind, I decided to use that as inspiration for this week's Nailed It Or Failed It Segment on WQAD News 8 at 11am.
We are making this peony-inspired wreath with coffee filters, of all things. This comes from the blog - Love Grows Wild - and all you need are a bunch of coffee filters, a glue gun, a pen, and a foam wreath from any craft store. I wanted to add some color to our wreath, so I dyed some of my coffee filters with this tactic from The Bold Abode.
