I have been wanting to put this project together for absolutely ever, and when Flower Muse sent us these most gigantic and perfect peonies I knew the time had finally come. Gaaahhhh what is it about peonies? I know they’re everyone’s favorite flower in the world and blah blah blah, but they totally deserve it. They’re just so ruffly and amazing. And obviously perfect for decorating your bicycle handlebars, right?! It looks so fancy but I promise it’s a piece of cake. So piece-of-cakey, in fact, that it’ll just take you a few minutes. Let’s do it.

Materials

Make Time: 15 Minutes

Grab a large flower, trim away the greenery from the stem, and cut the stem off at about 4 inches. Cut a piece of floral wire to about 5 inches. Hold the bloom over your handlebar and use the wire to affix the flower firmly. Repeat this process with large blooms across your handlebars.

Fill in any blank spots with greenery or smaller flowers like carnations. While you’re filling in, you can probably just wedge the stems of the greenery into the wires that are already holding your flowers, rather than wiring each individual piece. Fluff everything up and roll out!

We had so much fun cruising around town with my handlebars all decked out. If you try this one, be ready to get lots of smiles and comments from friendly folks who are into your flowers! xoxo
