DIY Spring Tulip Wreath
- Tulip bunches- $2 each from Michaels (6-8 bunches total, I used 7)= $14
- Grapevine Wreath, 18″- $5
- Floral Wire- $3 (this will last you for forever!!)
- Jute Ribbon- $3 (optional)
Total Cost- $25
Step 1: Trim Tulips
Once all the tulips are trimmed, begin to lay them out on your grapevine wreath form. With previous wreaths I had attempted to hot glue the flowers to the wreath form. Unfortunately, my front door, which is behind a storm door, tends to get crazy hot in the summer. When that happens the glue melts and the flower start to fall off. So floral wire or even ribbon is a better choice here to keep things intact.
Working in groups of one or two flower stems at a time, wrap the wire around the stems to secure it to the wreath form. Continue this process all the way around the wreath taking care to wrap the wire underneath the greenery.
Add a Bow...or not!
At this point, you can either call it good once the wreath is covered in flowers, you can add a ribbon, or you can fix a hanger on the back from floral wire. Totally up to you!! I flipped and flopped on this for a while but decided to add some jute ribbon for hanging and made a quick and easy double bow from this tutorial. I’m not typically a bow person but this one is growing on me!
