DIY Tulip Wreath

Theres nothing quite like tulips that say, “Spring is here!”. I absolutely love everything about this flower. I love what they symbolize (a start of a new season) and the variety of colors that they come in. The downside to tulips is they don’t live long so you only get to enjoy them for a short period of time. Well I have just the fix for that! I’ve been itching to do a DIY project for quite sometime now, and these gorgeous wreaths kept catching my eye on Pinterest. They are the perfect touch of spring for your front door, or wherever you choose to hang it! The best part is that they are extremely easy to make and inexpensive. I spent a total of $25 dollars and was able to purchase all my materials at Michaels. The artificial tulips were 50% off and I bought each bunch for $1.99. You can choose whatever colors your heart desires. I chose to go with pinks, white, oranges, and yellows. I put mine on my front door, so I tried to choose something that would go well with our colors. I’m going to post a step-by-step with pictures below, followed up with a full instruction guide that is a bit easier to follow when making your wreath.

Start by assembling your tulip bunches by color.  I had 10 bunches in 5 different colors (2 of each color).

Using wire cutters, separate the tulip bunches into single stems. Make sure to keep the stems long enough so that you can secure them into the wreath.  You may need to trim these up in the back when the wreath is complete. Keep the leaves on and push them up so they are directly under the tulips. I ended up with 8 stems from each of my tulip bunches. This may differ depending on where you purchase your flowers.

You will need one grapevine wreath. I used an 18″ wreath and purchased mine with a 60% off coupon from Michaels for $1.99.  These wreaths are perfect for this project! You simply stick the stems into it and they hold the tulips securely. NO GLUING is required.

Find a starting point and start sticking the stems into the wreath. I recommend sticking them in on an angle to make sure they are secure and in place. Place the tulips so they are facing the same direction as you go around the wreath. I promise you that no glue is needed. However, if you are afraid that they may fall out, you can use a hot glue gun. My wreath has survived the wicked Upper Peninsula winds and not a flower has fallen out.

There really is no order or pattern to follow. I just used my eye to make sure the colors were spread out evenly throughout the wreath. I recommend walking away for a few minutes and coming back with fresh eyes. Play around with it, there really is no wrong way to arrange this! It looks beautiful no matter what.

When you’re finished, attach a wired twine loop to the back for hanging. I also purchased a roll of twine with a 60% off coupon at Michaels for around $1.00.

Last step, hang it up on your door and prepare for a lot of compliments from your neighbors. It’s that pretty it will catch everyone’s eye! You can hang it up with a pretty ribbon, a wreath hanger, command strip, etc!

I love how mine turned out and can’t wait to have it up for the Spring! Find the full instructions below. Please feel free to comment with any questions.

Thanks for reading,

  6. I’ve never been the biggest fan of flowers, so pretty early on in our relationship, my husband stopped buying me traditional roses and switched to tulips for special occasions.. so now they’re my favorite. 🙂
