Vintage Style Peonies Mailbox Wall Decor

Peonies Mailbox Wall Decor

Make this easy Peonies Mailbox Wall Decor for your front door or as vintage style wall decor.

We have a large flower bed in our front yard along our gravel road, mostly filled with irises and peonies.  I rarely show it on the blog because it always needs weeding and looks messy.  Ain’t nobody got time for weeding!

But I’m going to show it to you today because my peonies are in full bloom and they are gorgeous.

The lifespan of peonies is so very short.  I wanted to bring some indoors where I could enjoy them, but I didn’t have a vase to put them in.  No problem!  I had just the thing that would work.

I’ve had this vintage style mailbox in my guest room for several years, and I knew it would be a great vessel for the flowers with just one thing added so that it would hold water.

I knew my real  peonies would look lovely inside it because I had previously used it to hold faux flowers and they looked very pretty.

I used wire cutting snips to trim them to size and plunked them in the mailbox.

Using real peonies was just as easy except I didn’t need wire cutting snips to cut the stems and I just used a tin can, something I always have a bunch of.  In my book, you can never have too many tin cans!

You don’t really need instructions to make this project, because it’s so easy!  But here’s what I did:

What You’ll Need:

I removed the lid from the vintage mailbox so there would be room for the tin can insde.

It was a spaghetti sauce can which was a good size.

I cut some of the blooms and buds that were ready to open, arranged them in the can and filled it with water, then put it in the mailbox.

So easy and so pretty!

I’ll enjoy them as long as they live then replace them with some fresh flowers.

So how do you like my mailbox wall decor with the peonies inside?

Thanks for stopping by to visit today!

I want to thank all of you who left a comment about my journey back after my stroke.  I haven’t had time to respond to them yet, but I read every single comment and appreciate them all.

  1. Don’t apologize for the weeds, silly, they are doing a super job keeping the peonies from sprawling all over the place. Such a pretty display, peonies in anything look lovely.

  2. Love the peonies! Thanks for sharing.

    We all have weeds we can’t keep up with and those beautiful peonies certainly help the area look nice. I love your little mailbox vase, you have a great holiday and thanks.

  4. Angie, I LOVE that mail box! I’ve seen it various places but it’s a little beyond my budget right now. But someday I’m gonna have it! I think the idea of displaying flowers in it is great. So simple but so pretty.

    I read your post yesterday recounting your health journey after your stroke. It must have been really scary. I’m so glad you’ve come as far as you have in regaining your physical functioning. You may regain even more as it’s not been a year yet since the stroke happened. I’m praying that you do.

    I think that attitude has a lot to do with healing, too. And your post sounds very up-beat, although I’m sure there are the down times, too. But I’m impressed that you’ve continued your projects and your blog posts and are enjoying many things in your life. I think you have a strong character and determination that is seeing you through this tough time.

    You are one of the first bloggers I started reading and are still one of my most favorite ones. I’m grateful that you felt you could share with your readers, who love you, the struggles you’ve been going through since the stroke. Thank you so much for trusting us with this personal information. It makes our bond as long-distance friends stronger, I think.

    Just one more thing: Tell your husband from me and the others that he MUST stop smoking. I think it is imperative for not only his health, but definitely for yours. And I know that I’m asking for a difficult thing. But look forward to the future with the possibility of lung cancer or COPD compromising your ability to enjoy your family and your whole life. If he just won’t stop, don’t let him smoke in the house or in the car. The second-hand smoke is as damaging as the first hand. There, I’ve stuck my nose in and said what I think, but only out of Love. Blessings, dear Angie, and continued healing.

    Prayers for your continued healing😊
