DIY Tulip Wreath

I spotted a beautiful tulip wreath on Pinterest recently and I just knew I needed it for my front door!  You can check out my post here to see that wreath along with some of my other favorite Pinterest ideas for spring, and you can visit my Pinterest boards here.

I felt like my house is kinda lacking in spring decorations and I have been wanting a new wreath for quite some time.  When I spotted this one, I felt like this would be a do-able project for a non-craftsy person like me!  I was so pleased with how it turned out!

If you would like to make this wreath yourself, here is what you will need:

  • A grapevine wreath in the size of your choice
  • Artificial tulips in the color of your choice
  • Burlap ribbon (wired), approx. 3 yards
  • Wire cutters or strong scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Clear string or fishing line (optional)

I got my wreath, flowers, and ribbon at Hobby Lobby and spent less than $15.00 for all those supplies.  Wait for the flowers to be 50% off (this happens every other week), and don’t forget to use that 40% off coupon!

To make your wreath, simply:

  •  Use your wire cutters to separate your tulips into individual stems (if they came in bunches), and remove any leaves. Keep a few of the leaves to use in the wreath later.
  • Holding the flowers up to the wreath, roughly decide where you want to place your flowers.  I used a few more flowers on the top of my wreath than the bottom, but you can use any design you wish.  Be sure to leave a 4 – 6 inch space between the top and bottom flowers for your bow!
  •  Begin placing your flowers on the wreath, pushing the stems into the grapevine to hold them in place. Use your wire cutters to cut any stems that may need to be shortened.  Tuck in a few of the tulip leaves for a touch of greenery… I used three on top and two on the bottom.
  •  Once you have your tulips arranged as you like, use the hot glue gun to attach any loose stems to the wreath and secure them in place.
  •  Wrap a piece of the ribbon around the wreath between the top and bottom flowers and cut it so it just overlaps . Hot glue it around the wreath, covering any stems as needed.  This will be the base for your bow.

  •  Use the remaining ribbon to make a big, fluffy bow. This can be tricky… my mom helped me with mine.  If you don’t have a mom that is handy with bows, you can check out this tutorial.
  •  Hot glue the bow to the ribbon you wrapped around your wreath.

  •  As an extra step (this is optional) I secured my flowers with some fishing line.  Since my front door gets a lot of sun, things that are hot glued can pop off in the heat.  Fishing line is an inconspicuous way to secure your blooms.  Just loosely tie any stems you want to secure to the wreath, making sure any loose ends of fishing line are on the back.

Oila! You now have a beautiful new wreath!  I had a big blogger fail and forgot to take step by step pictures, so hopefully these instructions make sense.  If I left anything out or if you have any questions, please feel free to comment below!

  1. That turned out VERY nice. Switching out the wreath on the front door every 2 or 3 months just makes you feel good all over when you drive in the driveway! My problem then becomes wreath storage!
