Monogrammed Tulip Wreath With Burlap Bow
I have been seeing a lot of tulip wreaths lately and I wanted to try my hand at making one myself.
Wow, this wreath looks complicated, but it has been one of my quicker wreaths that I have made. I kept it simple, with a burlap bow on one side with tulip buds cascading out on both sides. I also added a script monogram 'A' to the other side. The tulip buds are already starting to pop up in my yard, so this wreath couldn't have been made at a more perfect time!
I made this wreath for our front door... EXCEPT... it smooshes against our storm door when I close the door. SUCH a bummer... SO, I am really going to need to stick to 'skinny/thin' wreaths for the front door and this tulip wreath will go on the inside of our garage door instead! Do any of you have the same problem with the storm door 'smooshing' their wreaths? :(
I have really been in love with neutrals mixed with gold accents. I thought about spray painting the monogram 'A' gold, but decided to make it white. This wreath looks perfect with this white door.
I made the burlap bow with burlap ribbon that has wire edges. The wire edges really are a must, if you want to shape your bow. I used my bowdabra to help me make this bow, it is such a valuable tool! You can find bowdabra's on Amazon, my husband gifted me one for Christmas a few years back and I use it all the time for bows.
I had to go to FOUR stores to find the perfect tulips for this wreath. Hobby Lobby had the full size tulip buds, but I finally found baby tulip buds at Michaels. I loved mixing the sizes of full and baby flowers on this grapevine wreath!How to Make A Tulip Wreath:
The supplies for this project were pretty simple:Grapevine WreathTulips (I did full size AND baby blooms)Burlap RibbonWood initial
First, you'll want to make your burlap bow and hot glue it to the wreath.
Then, cut your tulip buds off the stem bunch and leave about 3", so you can tuck that piece into the grapevine wreath. I also cut off some of the greens to tuck into the grapevine wreath as well.
Tuck your tulip blooms into the grapevine wreath above and below the bow.
Then, spray paint your wooden initial letter the color you want and hot glue it to the wreath. That's it! It is SO easy... I really don't think it took me more than a couple of hours!
Hope you enjoyed this easy tulip wreath tutorial! I also have some blogger friends that shared three other Spring wreaths that I have linked in my post, so be sure to click on the link below to stop by my blog to see their gorgeous Spring wreaths, too!
