Want Peonies at your wedding, but don’t want to blow your budget? You can create DIY faux peonies by wrapping real Carnations together! Carnations have the same ruffled texture as a fully bloomed Peony and come in a variety of colors that look similar to Peonies. While Peonies retail for about $6 each, you can buy Carnations for less than $1, which will save you big time in the long run! Add in a few other flowers to your bouquet or arrangement and no one will notice that they’re not actually Peonies!
