Split Pea Wreath

I love the simplicity of this beautiful split pea wreath that I made for fall but can be used in spring or summer to!

I’ve seen split pea wreaths around Pinterest and I wanted to make one myself!

I love simple wreaths and wanted to make one for fall. I made two for my double front doors.

They are really easy to make but warning…a bit messy.

Perfect job for the kids!

So here’s what you need for to make the wreaths:


  • straw wreath
  • 1 bag of split peas per wreath
  • not regular glue, use Mod Podge {I tried the regular glue, it worked okay}
  • gloves

1. Go outside and set up a work station on your kids tiny picnic table.

2. Spread tons of Mod Podge glue on the inside area of the wreath with a chip or foam brush.

3. Grab a handful of split peas on press it on the glue.

4. Keep spreading glue and putting on peas all around the wreath.

5. Let areas dry for awhile  and go back and spread on more glue and fill the holes with more split peas.

6. Keep gluing, adding peas, letting dry and do over and over until it seems done 😉

You’ll see the spots that are bare that you’ll have to go over and fill later.

I used a straw wreath so if the parts of the straw show through it still looks purdy 😉

I made two for two doors, in case that wasn’t clear.
